Super easy to clean and very compact we use ours daily and so do all our vanlife friends. A must have for sure!

Games consoles and campervans don’t usually go hand in hand which means most of us gamers have to forego our beloved games when we hit the road. Thankfully the Nintendo Switch is the perfect console for campervans as you can play it with it’s built in screen or plug it in to your 12v TV or even put it on the big screen with your campervan projector!

One of the great things about travelling in a campervan is staying in some beautiful places and there’s no better or fun way of capturing this than with your very own drone. The DJI Spark has been the go to drone for vanlifers due to the combination of it’s full feature list, it’s low price and just how small it is. We’ve used ours to capture some amazing views and video us driving in some places we wouldn’t have normally been able to see.
