Covid-19 has altered virtually every aspect of life — with the uncertainty of border closures and unexpected lockdowns wreaking havoc on lavish getaway plans. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on enjoying a bit (or a lot) of travel during your retirement, with caravanning fast becoming the most popular way to explore your state or territory’s beautiful scenery and towns.
Whether you are cruising off into the sunset to spend your days by the beach, or making your way up the Aussie alps, we have compiled a few amazing products that will ensure your life on the road is as easy and mess-free as possible.
This speedy little food chopper is a must-have for your caravan kitchen. It’s perfect for chopping vegetables quickly, without mess or fuss, and it sneakily doubles as a food processor, making it the best option for those who enjoy cooking and don’t want to compromise on taste while out on the road. Its compact size and easy-clean finish means it doesn’t take up unnecessary space on your bench, nor your drying rack.
With one press of a button, you can be chopping, mincing, grinding and shredding in seconds. This automatic mini electric chopper and portable mini food processor also comes in three great colours: green, pink and white (pictured below).
This four-blade portable blender is the best option for those who enjoy breakfast smoothies or sunset cocktails but have limited space – taking up only eight square centimetres of space on the bench or in drawers. It features four sharp, durable, stainless-steel blades and is available in four sweet shades: pink, green, purple and blue. Strawberry daiquiri anyone?
If you haven’t yet tried silicone food pouches, you’ve been missing out. The cleanest, quickest way to store perishable items, this food-safe silicone set will make your life 100 per cent easier. These washable pouches function not only as a traditional ziplock bag would — without creating extra rubbish — but also as a cling wrap. This bundle of four is so handy for caravan life (and anywhere, really), and is currently on sale!
Have you ever pulled into a rest stop late in the afternoon and gone to freshen up only to realise your toiletries have busted, leaving soap, shampoo or conditioner all over everything? Yup, us too. It takes ages to clean up and is something that never happens at the right time.
Happily, the Australian Natural Soap Company’s Original Solid Shampoo Bar can save you from this dilemma. As the name suggests, this is shampoo in soap’s clothing. Using only natural Australian ingredients, with no harsh chemicals, this shampoo bar is safe for your caravanning in every sense.
One product that’s absolutely necessary, but always far too bulky for comfortable caravan living is a vacuum cleaner. Enter this Usb Rechargeable Cordless Car Wet And Dry Vacuum Cleaner. At only 32 centimetres long, and weighing only 720 grams, it’s the perfect size for your caravan.
This vacuum has a cordless design and three different attachment heads. It also has wet-and-dry functionality, making it a great option for not only capturing pesky pet hairs and minuscule dust and dirt particles (0.3 microns) but up to 100 millilitres of liquid. An absolutely superb choice for cars and caravans alike.
These compact little products will make your life on the road smoother than ever before. They’ll save you so much space and time — you’ll wonder how you got on before!
