Keep your food fresh on motorhome trips


Head outside and take your food with you

Limited room in your motorhome fridge but heading off to the great outdoors with little opportunity to  restock? You need some way of transporting and storing fresh produce so you don’t run out. It can also be a problem if you’ve parked up and are out walking for the day – how to keep your lunch cool. This is where the new incarnation of the Cool ‘n’ Go collection of coolboxes, coolbags and picnic bags from Outwell come to the rescue.

This year sees the ECOcool range evolve to include a variety of colour options in the existing 24-litre models and a new 35-litre option for larger demands. The ECOcool Grey 35L uses the latest energy-saving technology and PU insulation for best performance. The EEI Classified ECO cooler can be powered by either a 12V or 230V power supply. Dependent on choice it will keep contents 18°C-25°C below the ambient temperature or at 50°C-60°C – perfect for transporting take-away meals! A split lid minimises temperature fluctuations when accessing contents and the coolbox features an icepack divider.

There’s a similar attention to detail in the completely redesigned range of coolbags. The choice of materials ensures optimum insulation and performance while maintaining packability when both folded away or in use. Colours, trim and details like the new carry handles that convert to a shoulder strap, create good-looking products that are equally at home in the garden as they are on a campsite.

One of the Coolbag rangeThese can be seen in the new Outwell Puffin multi-functional shopping bag that features an insulating insert that is ideal for small shopping loads, snacks and drinks. The insert can be removed to turn the Puffin into a regular fashionable shopping bag for day-to-day use.
The Cormorant range comprises three different sizes of insulated cool bags in durable, easy care 400D polyester with PEVA lining. All bags feature outside built-in pockets and an adjustable strap for use as a carry handle or shoulder strap. The bags have a huge main compartment, inside mesh pockets for extra storage and a practical, large U-shaped opening.

Easy to pack and carry, the stylish Petrel cool bags are ideal for a variety of leisure activities – for picnics, festivals or going to the beach. The range features two square bag models with practical front zip-pockets for essential accessories and a small mesh pocket inside the lid. Both models are collapsible for a small packed size and have a waterproof loose liner that is easy to clean.

Finally, for the complete al fresco dining experience the Outwell range of smart Picnic Bags offer practical organisation of mealtime settings with tableware and ample insulated storage options for two and four people in the form of the Beecraigs Picnic Backpack and Somerset Picnic Bag respectively. Comfy handles and shoulder straps make carrying easy.
