Congratulations on your new camper trailer! Now that you’ve made this exciting purchase, it’s time to think about what accessories you might need to get the most out of your new rig. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our top recommended options for your new camper trailer.
Even though all of our Platinum camper trailers are equipped with a handbrake, we still recommend using wheel chocks. They are an inexpensive safety feature that can help prevent your trailer from rolling away when parked on an incline. They are also great for keeping your trailer stationary when parked on uneven surfaces. Invest in a good set of wheel chocks, and you'll have peace of mind when you're setting up camp.
A hitch lock is an essential accessory for any camper trailer owner. It secures your hitch, making it much harder for thieves to steal your rig. Some hitch locks even have built-in alarms that sound if the lock is tampered with. Sure - it is still possible to drive away with a hitch lock - However - it is much more difficult, and the more deterrants you can add, the better!
If your camper trailer comes equipped with a gas stove, then you'll need to invest in some gas bottles. We recommend getting two 9L bottles so that you always have a backup. (or so you can use one for your kitchen, and the other for your hot water system. Make sure to get bottles that have the LCC27 Gas Fitting installed, and have them filled up before you head out on your trip.
If you're planning on doing some remote camping, then you may want to carry extra fuel or water with you. A jerry can is a great way to securely transport extra fuel or water on the outside of your camper trailer. Make sure to get a jerry can that is compatible with the size of jerry holder on your camper. (These are a 20L standard, common size)
If you plan on using your camper trailer's 12V system to power appliances like lights and a fridge, then you'll want to invest in a good battery charger. A good battery charger will help extend the life of your camper trailer's battery, and ensure that it's fully charged when you're ready to hit the road, or it can keep you charged at a powdered site.
A torque wrench is a handy tool for any camper trailer owner. It allows you to tighten nuts and bolts to the correct torque, which is important for maintaining the integrity of your trailer's chassis and suspension. Make sure to get a wrench that is compatible with the size of bolts used on your trailer.
Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is important for safe towing. A good tyre pressure gauge will allow you to easily check the pressure of your camper trailer's tyres before you hit the road. Make sure to get a gauge that is accurate and easy to use.
Last but not least, a first aid kit is an essential accessory for any camper trailer owner. You never know when you might need it, and it's better to be prepared. Make sure to get a kit that includes items like bandages, antiseptic wipes, and pain relief medication.
Remember, safety should always be your top priority when camping with your trailer. Take the time to properly equip your camper with the necessary accessories and always be prepared for the unexpected. Whether you’re planning a short weekend getaway or an extended road trip, having the right gear can make all the difference in ensuring a stress-free and enjoyable adventure.
