I checked a number of providers of outdoor cooking equipment.
As a boy scout I was aware of the Campingaz brand, as I had used their products previously. I was looking for a lightweight easy to assemble BBQ. I then discovered the Campingaz party grill and boy was this a compact BBQ.
When it arrived the BBQ was literally packed inside itself, the extendable legs, were inside the main body of the BBQ as were the detachable cooking options, i.e a typical BBQ rack and a griddle and non stick grill pan as well.
Using the BBQ was a dream, it assembled in minutes and was really easy to use. I connected it to my caravan with a push fit connection and within a minute or so I was ready to cook. I found that the temperature gauge was an added bonus and if you wanted to you could cook a chicken or a roast or even bake bread in the grill as it becomes an oven too.
All in all this BBQ grill is a super device, it packs up neatly (once cool), it comes with a handy carry bag, is super easy to use and is extremely well priced.
So if you are considering a BBQ for your camping or caravanning needs consider the Campingaz party grill you won’t be disappointed.
Coleman TWIST+ 300 LED lantern
When caravanning many people do two types, off and on grid. Off grid is for the more extreme vanners who brave the weather with no EHU or electric hook up.
I suppose its seen by some as the more traditional way of vanning without the modern convenience of the 240v supply. Being a green vanner I use solar power a lot and this is where the Coleman twist LED lantern comes into its own. Multipurpose and strong, this weather resistant TWIST+ 300 Lithium Ion Rechargeable Lantern doubles as a charging unit and a light source. It is USB compatible and with a bright 300-lumen output, you can stay out of the dark and remain connected for longer.
This is an ingenious product that holds an amazing amount of charge for your mobile device and provides outstanding brightness from a low drain ultra bright LED.
All in all this means if your camping or vaning and you have little or no power left pug in you phone or tablet to the Coleman twist-light and you will have a charging facility right at your fingertips.
Cleverly Coleman have introduced a patent-pending BatteryLock™ technology to prevent battery drain, the TWIST+ 300 lantern is the ultimate sturdy and reliable campsite lighting companion, and it proves extremely invaluable on my caravanning trips worldwide. Needless to say charger and USB cable is included.
