The Top 5 Accessories your Static Caravan Needs

If you’re heading to your static caravan for a nice summer holiday, you can spice things up by introducing some of these great accessories to your home away from home.


Awnings are a versatile and stylish way to add shade and usable space to the side of your caravan. They are perfect for use in Summer when eating outdoors or can be used as a place to store equipment, as an extra ‘camping-style’ bedroom or even as a wet room. The best part is they can be neatly rolled away when they aren’t needed.


Adding fencing around your static caravan, garden and pitch is a great way to create a cosy and comfortable feeling to your home away from home. Fencing is a great way to create a real community space whilst secluding yourself away enough for your own homely space. A lot of our holiday homes that are currently for sale already feature fencing.


Unfortunately, things can go wrong at any given moment, meaning you will really regret not having a tool-kit to hand. A basic, easy-to-find tool-kit will be enough, as they tend to include a wrench, mallet, screwdriver and other bits and bobs, but it will really come in handy and help you out should you if you run into any common problems.

Storage Unit

It’s no secret that the storage space in a static caravan can often be on the small side. That’s why an outdoor storage unit is the perfect accompaniment, particularly for items like garden furniture and bicycles that you wouldn’t want to leave in your caravan. Most storage units are lockable to ensure optimum security and can also be bolted to the ground.

Safety Equipment

Not all static caravans are kitted out with the latest safety equipment, so it’s vital that you get the things you need for optimal safety. We’d advise a fire extinguisher, fire blanket and smoke alarm that is tested regularly to ensure your static caravan is as safe as possible. Whilst fires may be rare, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
