Every single year there are thousands and thousands of Aussies who are getting into, or getting back into, the great Aussie pastime – going camping! We have one of the best countries in the world for camping, with absolutely incredible 4×4 camping at our back doorstep no matter where in the country you live. 4WD Supacentre is Australia’s leading provider of incredible value camping accessories and we pride ourselves on the fact that we make camping accessible for more Aussies than ever before. Our massive range of camping gear and 4×4 camping accessories all has one thing in common – incredible value! All our camping gear is the perfect combination of excellent quality and unbeatable price. If you’re just starting out camping, or you’re getting back into camping after a little while away, you may be a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choice available when it comes to camping accessories. Here’s our guide to setting up your campsite to make sure you have the best camping experience possible.
- MAKE YOUR CAMPING ACCOMODATION EASY TO SETUP AND PACKUP
The number one reason that people get turned off camping is because they hate setting up and packing away ultra-complicated tents that take hours of messing around. Here at 4WD Supacentre we hate over-complicated camping gear too, so we’ve made it our mission to make our 4×4 camping gear simple. Our huge range of tents, swags and roof top tents are all incredibly easy to setup and pack away and they’re seriously good quality too.
- MAKE SURE YOU’VE GOT PLENTY OF SHELTER TOO
Anyone can go camping when the weather is good, but you need to be able to prepare for a change in the weather too. When the wind or the rain rolls in, you want lots of under-cover sheltered space otherwise you’ll end up having to tuck yourself into your swag at 4pm! The Adventure Kings range of gazebos and 4×4 awnings are quick to setup and provide heaps of excellent shelter.
- UPGRADE YOUR 4×4’S ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
At some stage you’re going to want to start bringing more of those mod-cons from home with you. You’ll probably want to invest in a portable fridge, and you’ll definitely want LED camp lights (more on that in a second), but you’ll need a good dual battery system to handle it all. 4WD Supacentre sells a range of dual battery chargers and AGM deep cycle batteries to handle all your 12v needs.
- ADD LOTS OF LIGHTING TO YOUR CAMPING
LED camp lights are brilliant around camp because they’re ultra-bright but they also draw very little power compared to traditional halogen lights. Whether it’s a 1 metre strip light or one of our cracking four or five bar LED camp lighting kits, you can’t go past good LED camp lighting as a way of upgrading your camping gear. Hang the LED camp lights from your awning or your gazebo and you will never have to stumble around in the dark again.
- DON’T FORGET A GOOD COMFY CAMP CHAIR
Forget that ratty old cheap camp chair you bought from the hardware store, because it’s doing you no favours! There’s absolutely nothing like having a comfy camp chair when you’re kicking back at camp, and the range of Adventure Kings camp chairs are seriously comfy! There’s a couple of different styles depending on what type of camping you do and what you like best, but what they have in common is they’re both built to last. That’s good because you’re going to spend a lot of time kicking back around the campfire in then!
- ONCE YOU HAVE THE BASICS SORTED, START CUSTOMISING YOUR CAMPSITE AND YOUR 4×4
The ways you can upgrade your camping gear from here are almost endless here at 4WD Supacentre. Whether it’s camping accessories for cooking, or even winches or spotlights for your 4×4, there’s a massive range of 4×4 gear on offer to make your off-road adventure incredible. And every single thing we sell here at 4WD Supacentre has that same unbeatable value for money – that spot-on combination of incredible quality and unbeatable price. Here at 4WD Supacentre, we make camping affordable!
