When you decide to go with an off-road caravan, you already know an important choice is the chassis. What you may not know are the other key things to look for to give you the best possible purchase for your money. Here are a few of the upgrades you may find on an off-road caravan and how they can benefit you.
Extending Exterior Kitchen
Most off-road caravan options have an internal kitchen area with a cooktop and possibly a microwave. Some larger makes and models also come with ovens. Though these are ideal for most situations, having an exterior slide out kitchen can be greatly beneficial during the warmer months. Interior cooking areas can heat up the entire caravan. This is fine in the colder months, but in the summer months, it can be difficult to cool off the area before sleeping. You can counteract this with an exterior area that will allow you to keep the inside of the caravan cool while cooking.
Slide Out Storage
Many off-road caravan models are not known for storage. For this reason, you may want to look for a caravan that has slide-out storage inside. The slide-out storage can fit between rooms of the caravan, between cabinets, and even under cabinets and sitting areas. This maximizes your space and allows you to take more items with you for your off-road plans. For example, with the extra slide out storage, you can easily store hiking materials without taking up unnecessary space in the rest of the caravan.
Rooftop Solar Panels
Solar power is one aspect of off-road caravans that many buyers look for. The solar panels ensure that you have power in remote areas where a caravan lot or electric hookup will not be found. Most people tend to use solar panels that are on the side of the caravan or mount outside in some way. Ideally, you should look for rooftop solar panels. They take up space that is often not used, and they can get solar power while you are driving without getting in the way.
If you like some of the upgrades listed here, and you can't find an off-road caravan with the options included, you can have them added. If you are ready to begin narrowing down the right caravan for you, contact your local caravan dealer. They can help you with pricing and finding the options that will fit your lifestyle.
