The Checklist of 10 must-have Items for Your Static Caravan

  1. Kitchen gear

First on our static caravan checklist is kitchen gear because just like your home, your kitchen has to be one of the most important places that should be well equipped. You might want to do something basic or glamorous based on your budget. Some of the kitchen gear you might need may include a toaster, kettle, plus plates, bowls, cups, mugs, and glasses. You should have enough or more utensils for everyone who resides in the caravan. Don’t forget the minor items such as the cutleries, knives, can openers, jugs, bowls, tray and dishes for the oven. There are numerous static caravans for sale northeast that might come with a few kitchen gear items. Below we have highlighted some kitchen gear items and their benefits: 

  • Food processor: This kitchen gadget might be your favourite if you love trying new things. The food processor can shred down a cheese block. It is a much cheaper option where you have to repeatedly buy pre-shredded cheese and use it for an extended period. You can also use a food processor to make mayonnaise, peanut butter, or whipped cream in no time.
  • Rice cooker: Rice is a well-coloured food amongst millions worldwide. However, it is a surprise that many feel it is odd or unnecessary to own one. The rice cooker removes the obstacle of measuring the proper water to cook your rice. The instructions come with the range (i.e. put x amount of rice and fill the water to y level in the oven and press the cook button).  
  1. First Aid kit

We cannot overemphasise the importance of a first aid kit and this is a must for your static caravan checklist. Life is full of many unplanned events and accidents. It is always safer to have a first aid kit near you. Alongside your existing home, you should make plans to include a first aid kit in your static caravan. Keep the items in the box clean and fresh by cleaning what is cleanable and replacing those with new things. Parklink has several static caravans for sale Yorkshire where you can bring a first aid kit to.

If your static caravan is far from your residential address, it is not advisable to constantly move your charger from your house to the train and back to your home. Why not just have separate chargers for both locations, so you don’t have to worry about carrying chargers around.  

  1. Fire safety equipment

No one can predict when a fire can happen, which is why it is essential to keep fire-fighting equipment in your static caravan. It is best to opt for a dry powder fire extinguisher.

To enjoy internet access, you have to pay a charge to top up the SIM card.  

  1. Outdoor furniture set
