In last month’s reader survey we asked you which item of caravanning or motorhome equipment could you not live without? The votes have been counted (and verified), and we can now reveal the results…
At the bottom of the list with a just a few percent of the votes we have generators, satellites and reversing aids. Turns out you ‘vanners wouldn’t prioritise computer access when touring as laptops and tablets earned just 5% of the votes putting it into 6th place.
A number of you commented on the blog and put your own suggestions forward for ‘must have items of touring equipment’. These included having your own toilet facilities, wine racks, bottle openers, mini spirit levels, solar panels, slow cookers and torque wrenches.
On to the top five voted for items now and it looks like it’s outdoor space you’re after as awnings picked up 7% of the vote. Above that, with 9% of the vote, we have every driver’s must have companion, the sat nav. Ensuring you don’t get lost on the way to your campsite is an obvious priority!
Aquarolls round off our top three with 13% and in second place we have a popular modern day caravanning gadget, the motormover, with an impressive 23% of votes. One voter commented “The mover makes life so much easier especially after a fairly long drive to a site.”
But coming in at number one, with a massive 29% of the vote, as chosen by you, we have the kettle! So it seems that no trip is complete without a good cuppa’!
Thanks to all of you for voting. Why not vote in our next poll “Which European countries have you visited in your ‘van?”
