Camping Gear

The right gear can kickstart your camping - trailer free

I'm seriously a bit of a camping store nut - I can't go past one without a strong desire to go in an have a sticky-beak. I also can't look at any camping related item without forming an opinion about how heavy and bulky it is - or not.

The same goes for cars - I get boot envy when I see something like a dual cab ute with a canopy over the tray. The driver might think I'm checking them out, but that's usually not the case!

This page contains a list of those items that get the nod from me, not only in terms of being lightweight and compact for transporting by car, but also taking into account whether I think they are good value and eco-friendly.

Not every item will be suitable in your particular circumstance, and that's why we have The Campus, our member only portal, to help you to establish a trailer-free setup that suits you.
