Trailer Tent accessories come in many different forms; those of necessity and those of luxury.
General accessories that are needed can be as simple as waste carriers, camping chairs, crockery, water bottles and gas to things such as sleeping bags, wellies, a camping lantern, pegs for the awning and mallets for banging them in. To make sure everything fits in, it is preferable to choose a trailer tent that has lots of storage space. There is an art to packing a trailer tent so that when you get to your destination you don’t need to unpack everything just to get to the awning or pegs. When packing, you should bear in mind the weight limits imposed on you and if needs be go down to a local weigh bridge when fully loaded to make sure the weight limits are not violated.
Trailer Tent Kitchen Units
Some makes and models have a kitchen unit as an optional extra whilst more expensive brands and models will have them included. If you think you will need to use the kitchen unit en route then it is wise to pick one that has an easy access door unit so that you don’t have to unpack too much when on the road or at a service station. The kitchens can either be carried to the rear of the trailer, inside the trailer or often on the tow bar area. Where it is carried will affect the nose weight dramatically and if it not part of the main unit then remember to add the weight when working out what you can carry. This is not just true for the kitchen unit but also applicable to any gas bottles that are stored on it or on the tow bar. It is always wise to disconnect these whilst in transit or manually moving the unit for safeties sake.
Trailer Tent Covers
It is wise to try and get a cover that will protect your soft furnished items such as beds, mattresses and sleeping bags from the elements when setting up or dismantling a trailer tent as not all models offer this protection from the elements.
