Whether your family owns a camp that you go to during the summer, during hunting season, or whenever else, it can be helpful to have a few modern amenities around. This article will cover some modern amenities, like items involving running water, that can make camping more comfortable at any time of year. However, this article will not delve into luxuries that “glampers” would use. Instead, it will focus on functionality.
Running water is something that many of us take for granted when we are at home and that we sorely miss when we are camping. For this reasons, mobile showers can help to ease the difficulties (and smelliness) of camping. These showers can be hauled on the back hitches of trucks and other large vehicles in the same way that campers can be attached. How you will need to set up the shower will be determined by the model you buy. All showers should come with installation instructions. When in doubt, ask a professional to help you set up the shower.
Portable Solar Power Generators
Having a generator on hand is a good idea if you have any type of electronics out at your camp. Generally speaking, two of the most popular types of generators include crank generators and solar-powered generators. However, solar-powered generators tend to work better, as you do not need to put much effort into making them work. Simply put the generator in a sunny spot and start collecting free energy from the sun. The best part about getting a portable solar generator is that you can easily move it from one part of the campground to another (or from home to the camp) without any problems.
Once the energy is collected, it will be stored in battery cells. Some of these battery cells may have outlets on them that you can plug your devices into. Some may not. It all depends on the model of the generator and the batteries you choose.
Whether your camp is missing out on all of the “luxury” of modern plumbing or electricity, these two simple appliances can help. They are a little on the expensive side, but they make camping so much more enjoyable that every penny you spend on these appliances is sure to be worth it. If you buy these items during the off-season months, then you should be able to save some money too!
