Putting fitness and adventure into your caravan an
The growing popularity of caravan and camping holidays among younger couples and family groups is driving new dimensions in adventure tourism.
Increasingly, people enjoying the quality and affordability of self-drive holidays are looking to value add to their experiences by rigging their vehicles to carry accessories such as mountain bikes, kayaks and aluminium dingheys.
Surveys carried out at the annual South Australian Caravan and Camping Show indicate a widening desire for people to incorporate adventure experiences in their holidays, including bushwalking, rock climbing, fishing, surfing and diving.
Caravan and Camping Industries Association of SA Executive Officer, Stuart Livingstone, said the data overwhelmingly showed people of all ages are seeking physical activity and fitness elements on their self-drive holidays.
“It is about discovering new things and exploring new horizons,” he said.
Camper trailers are especially popular among younger travellers because they deliver the simple pleasures of camping, but with more comfort.
These stylish trailers are easy to tow when cruising the open road, but also durable enough to venture off the bitumen. Once you have reached your destination, your home away from home can be ready in a matter of minutes.
Camper trailers come in on-road and off-road models. On-road versions have the ground clearance of a standard vehicle, and are ideal for regular camping grounds.
Off-road models are designed for more rugged and remote travelling with higher ground clearance, tougher tyres, suspension and shielding to guard against rocks and dust. Usually they come with additional storage facilities allowing longer camping trips.
What’s more, you’ll even find room to carry a tinnie, bike rack, small motorbike, extra fuel containers or water.
The CCIASA has mounted a dynamic new phase of its Taking Time Out marketing campaign to promote the fun, affordability and diversity of caravan and camping experiences in South Australia.
