Adding an incredible amount of space, camper, caravan and motorhome awnings are the quick and easy way to change the comfortability of your camping.
Secondhand, they offer great value and can usually be picked up in ‘as new’ condition. They are surprisingly adaptable and I’ve seen many makes fit other manufacturer’s vehicles, although you should check this first.
Top CamperAuctions Tip:
Don’t forget to check all awning zips and make sure to ask for the relevant tent pegs and guy ropes as these all add to the overall cost if not included
Well we all have to have somewhere to sit. However, I’ve found that over the years I have done countless projects which required ripping out and modifying seating. Often the best place to start is with a decent quality secondhand unit. Prices are particularly good secondhand, but bear in mind that most units will be collection only so factor this in when buying.
Swivel seats (also known as Captain’s seats) are very desirable if you want to create a day van, mobile office or just add a touch of luxury. Swivel bases can be purchased separately so a standard seat can be modified if you find what you are after. Swivel seats for van conversion projects are quite sought after so if you see a set for sale, don’t waste time in getting to the seller to offer them money, there’s usually an eager buyer around the corner.
With jump seats, buddy seats, folding seats, swivel chairs, recliners, stools and good old fashioned cushions, the list is endless but the choice is there. Contact us if you have any seating projects, finished or otherwise, you’d like to share.
With the extra load put on your system by running additional 12 volt equipment, a good quality leisure battery is a must. Fridges, additional lights, even radios all add to that power drain. Opting for a battery which has as many ‘Amp hours’ (AH) as possible within your budget is a sensible choice. Our suggestion is not to drop below 95AH which will give you longer life between charges. Don’t forget to buy any clamps you may require (quick release are always useful). Popular brands include Lucas, Exel, Hi-power, Varta, Elecsol, Platinum, Halfords, Tayna, Numax and Trojan.
Look for ‘deep cycle’ on the battery as this is designed to provide a consistent voltage as the battery discharges.
