Snugpak Luxury Washbag
Win this! See how below.
We've all done the toilet block hustle. You load up with shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, toothbrush, towel, hairbrush, fresh clothes and other morning essentials and hurry off to the toilet block trying not to leave a trail of toiletries as you go.
Or, you could do it the Snugpak way.
Grab the pre-loaded washable holding all your toiletries, and saunter off to the facilities without a care in the world.
A hook lets you hang it out of the way of splashes and puddles, a nice touch.
There's a small detachable mirror, handy, but it won't replace a full-sized washroom mirror.
The standard version has a couple of pockets and elasticated storage sections, while this luxury version adds a compartment for wet items. It's pretty useful and well priced.
Klean Kanteen flask
Win this! See how below.
We love the sturdiness and unmistakable build quality of Klean Kanteen products. Yes, they are 'premium', but our KK products are still going strong when other lesser brands have ended up in the recycling.
The TKPro is an insulated flask with an integrated cup. It features a unique 360-degree pour-through design and is 100% plastic-free.
This stylish flask will enhance any picnic or camping table and comes in three sizes (0.5-litre, 0.75-litre and 1-litre) and two colours (matt black and brushed stainless steel).
This thermal Kanteen maintains the temperature of hot drinks for up to 38 hours and iced drinks for up to 100 hours.
Price from £34.94
Leisure Logs Caravan Journal
Win this! See how below.
A keen caravanner created this cute and fun touring diary, Carol Kaczor.
"We've been caravanning for years and have filled in many plain supermarket notebooks detailing our travels, places we visited and what we did. I've looked out for a colourful journal for this purpose, but when I couldn't find one, I decided to create one myself."
Carol's journal is A5 in size and has 72 colourful pages. Every sixth page depicts a fun image of the social side of caravanning.
In between, there are plenty of pages on which to record travels and adventures. The cover is laminated and wipeable. Inside the back cover is a large map of the British Isles. Perfect for the 2019 touring season.
Price £13.50 + p&p
Keep an eagle eye on your caravan 24/7, with brilliant CCTV and security systems from Y-cam.
The latest systems can be armed and controlled via Amazon's Alexa, and camera footage can be beamed straight to the cloud for maximum safekeeping.
Storing a caravan at home is proven to be riskier than leaving it in secure storage, but for those who do, Y-cam systems can provide an extra deterrent to wannabe thieves.
The motion-activated, weatherproof cameras feature night-vision.
They can be linked to your home's WiFi, minimising any wiring if required and enabling smartphone or tablet access to the images. The cameras are just one element of a modular and integrated security system so that you can protect your home and your van.
"This game is terrific and tremendous, probably the biggest and most beautiful game in the whole world."
In Trump Cards you have to decide which of the quotes came straight from the horse's mouth (so to speak), and which ones are fake news.
This 'Presidential' game is fun for family and friends to play in the caravan or awning, and it's so simple that 12-year- olds, and even adults, can enjoy it. They are guaranteed to bring laughs to the Lunar and entertainment to the Marquis.
For 2-10 players; Let's make rainy days great again!
Fjällräven High Coast padded jacket
Top-class Swedish brand, Fjällräven, is famed for its outdoor clothing and accessories.
The company says the High Coast padded jacket combines lightweight, comfort and medium insulation to make it a perfect three-season option. We reckon that, with a good jumper underneath, High Coast would be ideal in all but the most brutal British winter weather.
The simple and stylish design gives plenty of free movement and features a fixed hood and hand pockets.
It's made from wind and water-resistant HC Lite, a durable material that keeps its good looks and padded with synthetic G-Loft Supreme for both lightness and warmth.
High Coast is available in khaki or blue and comes in sizes from XXS to XL. Men's and women's versions are available.
