Accessory
of the Year

 
   

 

In association with The Caravan Club logo

 

 

 

And the winner is...
... the Garmin nüviCam LMT-D


The Garmin nüviCam LMT-D features a forward-facing camera as well as a sat-nav with a 6-inch screen to provide the ultimate in sat-nav technology.

  • Sat-nav with integrated dashcam records footage as you drive or whenever there is an incident detected by the shock sensor.
  • Uses dashcam in innovate ways such as lane departure warnings, proximity alerts and highlighting destinations on live video screen.
  • Free updates for full European mapping.
  • Digital traffic updates warns you when delays are ahead and suggests alternative routes.

 

While the nüviCam won't suit the cab of some A-class motorhomes, for all coachbuilts, panel van conversions and campervans, it's the ideal combination of dashcam and sat-nav in one. Where the Garmin device wins out is by using the technology in different and interesting ways. It's all configuarable as well, so you can use the camera to record your trip, or just have the proximity warning on - it's your choice. The sat-nav itself is top notch. If your motorhome doesn't have one built in, then consider a fantastic addition to your dashboard.

The winners of the Highly Commended award for accessories include the...

 

FirePal FP-50

Forget what you know about old fashioned, clunky fire extinguishers, the compact FP-50 from FirePal can tackle electrical, kitchen, liquids and gas fires. Yet it's only fraction the size of a traditional device and takes up hardly and space or payload. An essential accessory for every motorhome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Truma iNet system

Control your water temperature and air conditioning without even being in the motorhome. The Truma iNet system uses a control iNet Box in the motorhome and a mobile device app to remotely set the fuel type being used, monitor internal temperatures and check on the voltage level available.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fugoo Sport

Quite simply the best Bluetooth speaker we've seen and heard this year. If you want to send sounds around your motorhome or into the awning, then this is the way to do it. Waterproof, mud proof, shockproof and exchangeable sleeves is the start, but it's the superb ease of use and fantastic sound that make it a winner.
