New caravan accessories are all about making your life easier and more comfortable when out and about on a caravan holiday. Items, such as satnavs, portable air conditioning and awnings, are all great additions to your caravan and they are improving in quality continuously.

What accessories can I put in a caravan?

The answer to what accessories can I put in a caravan comes down to safety. You can put any accessories in your caravan as long as it is safe to do so, or it can be stored safely. For example, items that will help you light a fire or BBQ at a campsite (like liquid fuel, for instance), need to be put safely away somewhere in your caravan so that it does not spill and cause a health and safety hazard.

How much extra weight do caravan accessories take?

Caravans need to keep to a certain weight to be safe to transport on the road. Each caravan will have a different maximum weight which is referred to as the MTPLM, or the Maximum Technically Permissible Laden Mass. It is imperative to refer to your own specific owner manual to find this information so you do not go crazy adding weight to your caravan with countless accessories.
