Touring Caravan Storage
Caravans Have Come A Long Way Over The Years
By Chris Cooper
If you are new to caravanning, want to return to caravanning or think "there's no way I am getting a caravan" then read on...
Caravans have come a long way over the years, and if your memories of touring caravans are cold draughty damp things, you should really take a look at the latest models. Also, if your memories of campsites are of wet damp fields with cold smelly toilet blocks, you should have a look at todays campsite/caravan parks, you will be suprised.
So what is different in caravans today?
The easy answer is a great deal, but if you still aren't convinced, pop along to your local dealer and have a look. That's what I did a few months ago and have never looked back. As a comfortable base for other adventure and outdoor activities such as mountain biking, canoeing, walking and just about anything else, the modern caravan is a great place to stay. If you choose your sites carefully (I would always opt for the Caravan Club sites without a bar/club particularly if you have a young family in tow!) you can be assured of high spec, clean facilities in some great locations.
A caravan today comes with: (some of the items below are sold as extra's)
mains and battery power
Dual gas/electric blown air or wet system heating
Full oven and hob
Fridge or fridge/freezer
External gas point
Electric flush toilets
Door and window flyscreens
T.V aerial And much more. Modern caravanners have a whole host of additional items for their caravans including:
Caravan movers (essential if you opt for a big caravan in my opinion)
