    Camping Gear: Hit the Unknown Roads Prepared

    By on Last modified: December 27, 2016

    Everyone at some point in their life, should visit a place where nature hasn’t been touched by the hands of human. Seeing and appreciating mother nature in her rawest and untouched form is a blessing that unfortunately not many more generations will get to experience. There’s no better feeling than sleeping under the open sky, drinking cold beer, roasting marshmallows on a campfire, relaxing and just enjoying the wildlife. But in order to enjoy all of these pleasures, you need to prepare for the camping trip beforehand and bring along the vital 12V and 4Wd camping gear for an unforgettable camping experience.


    Travelling with a 4×4 means you won’t have the comfort of a caravan, so you’ll have to bring a lot of inflatable camping equipment like tents, sleeping mattresses, etc. An inflatable pump should be one of the key things you bring, alongside other 12V & 4Wd camping gear and it’s best that the pump has multiple different nozzles, that would be able to fit most brands. This not only includes camping equipment, but also water-skiing equipment if you’re camping close to a lake, for example. Moreover, if you happen to own a boat and want to go for a cruise in the nearby lake, you shouldn’t forget to check the bilge pump off your list.

    Besides the inflatable pump, you should also bring a portable freezer/fridge as there’s no better way to keep your food in a good condition and your drinks ice cold, no matter where your journey takes you. High-end models of portable freezers feature low power consumption and will quickly cool down your food and drinks, which makes the portable fridge part of the essential 4WD camping gear every camping enthusiast should have.

    Depending on whether you own a trailer or not, you’ll need to bring a tent. A tent is essential to ensure you have a cozy and safe stay out in the wild. You’ll also need quality pegs to secure it to the ground. Tents can come in different shapes, sizes and designs, so it’s easy to choose the one that will best suit your camping style. However, the one thing you’ll have to keep in mind is the season specification of the tent. There are three types – 3 season, 4 season and 1 season tents. The 3 season ones are meant for the warmer months, the 4 season tents are meant for all year round, while the 1 season tents are meant for summer, as they provide better ventilation.
