Caravan Wired For Sound And Vision

27255636-08db-4901-b161-7a26744b6032

Base Systems kitted out a caravan at the NEC show with a huge array of technology to gauge opinion on what new buyers want fitted in their new caravans.

This 'fully loaded' Elddis Aurora shows people what they can do with their caravan, replicating some of the audio visual technology they have equipped their homes with.

The technology includes a DVD/CD/MP3 player, a 10-disc CD Changer, a digital TV tuner, a separate radio and a Playstation 2 that operates through the main TV. The 19-inch TV in the lounge rises electrically out of a cupboard unit - and, importantly, is hidden away when not in use.

There's another screen in the kitchen that plays anything on the main screen. There's also a 23-inch digital television in the bedroom that plays movies from a separate DVD player.

Sound from the televisions comes through enhanced speakers and in the lounge you can hear 5.1 surround sound. There's a marine speaker in the shower and above the basin, through which you can either listen to what's on the bedroom television or listen separately to the radio.

Marine speakers on the nearside exterior wall can also deliver sound to the awning.

Neil Dearn from Base Systems said: 'We have to future-proof our caravans, as there is no point fitting technology that will soon be out of date.'

The equipment described above would cost a total of around £4,000 to be built-in to the production process, but that obviously is much greater when fitted after-market. None of the above equipment is fitted as standard on any new caravans at the moment but watch this space.
