< Inspiration / Category: Featured Bloggers / Tags: Travel with Kids Trip in a Van

Justin from Trip in a Van talks about how to upgrade a car and caravan for a weekend away or a Big Lap. It’s just as important, no matter the length of your trip.

Getting Started

The key is to remember you don’t need every bell and whistle to get started caravan and camping. However, modifications can make camping life more enjoyable and reduce hassle. Justin’s upgrades include:

  • Roof racks
  • Bull bar
  • 2″ Lift
  • Side steps
  • Snorkel
  • 33″ Tryes
  • Canopy
  • UHF radio
  • Brake controller
  • 4×4 Awning
  • Towing mirrors
  • Storage draws
  • Dual batteries
  • 3 Bunk beds
  • 1 Queen bed
  • Shower and toilet
  • Full kitchen and large fridge

Justin finds his setup perfect for towing their caravan, day trips, camping and touring the Australian countryside. Feel free to ask him a question in the comments below.

Remember, it is always a good idea to consult an industry professional before making any modifications or changes to your towing vehicle or caravan. This will ensure that these modifications not only adequately meet your needs and requirements, but remain safe, fit for purpose and compliant to all relevant regulations.
