If you enjoy being outdoors but, for some reason, don't enjoy camping or using a caravan, it might be that you haven't invested in the equipment needed for making your campsite more comfortable and relaxing. A few cheap camping chairs may not be enough to create an outdoor environment that you love and that is comfortable for you. Note a few suggestions on the best equipment you might buy for making your caravan or tent site more enjoyable.
The right cooler
A cheap and tiny cooler may not hold enough of your favourite foods and drinks, and may allow the inside temperature to escape easily, so that you're always needing to add more ice. A high-quality cooler with a locking lid and with plenty of room inside can mean more of your favourite foods on hand and less need to keep buying fresh ice to add to the cooler. Shop around for the best rated coolers in your budget, and remember to put ice in thick, freezer-quality zipper bags, or freeze water in plastic soda bottles and put those in the cooler, rather than just dumping ice inside. This will mean less risk of your stored food getting wet and soggy.
Air beds and chairs
Sleeping in a tent, even with the best sleeping bag, can make any trip uncomfortable and even downright painful. Caravan mattresses may not provide much added comfort. Instead, invest in an air bed with a built-in pump, as this can provide more cushioning for you while you sleep. In a tent, an air mattress will also get you off the ground, so that you stay warm and dry. Inflated chairs can also be more comfortable than a folding tent chair; just be sure to keep plastic items away from dangerous campfires!
Awning with walls
Sitting outside your caravan on a hot summer day can actually be very uncomfortable, which is why it's good to invest in a quality awning for the side of your trailer. An awning with walls that unroll or zip into place can also offer privacy, as well as added protection from the sun and high winds. This is something to especially consider if you camp near the beach or desert, where winds can easily send bothersome sand to your campsite. If you love fresh air and sunshine, but don't want to be completely exposed to the elements, invest in quality awning walls for your caravan to make your camping trips more comfortable.
