6 Things You Didn't Know You Could Take Camping

Do you shy away from camping, thinking you won't be able to enjoy the finer things in life? Here's a somewhat surprising list of 6 things you can take away, so you can put the joy back into camping!

Gone are the days when camping just involved braving the elements. You can still enjoy the finer things in life with the latest in the market. Coleman Australia fill us in on the latest trends.

1. A hot shower

Camping doesn’t have to always equal cold, bucket showers (or worse going without!). There are portable hot water devices which give you beautiful, steaming hot water in less than five seconds.

Coleman Hot Water on Demand RRP $399.99

2. A memory foam mattress

This one threw us too. Gone are the days when camping meant sleeping on a thin sleeping bag with rocks sticking into your back! Now you can bring a double high queen size inflatable bed and probably have a better night’s sleep than you would in your own bed.

Aerobed Premier with Memory Foam Queen RRP $399.99

3. A doggy tent

Just because you don’t want the family pet sleeping in your tent doesn’t mean they can’t come on your next camping adventure. While dogs might be made for the outdoors, they can still catch up on their sleep protected from the elements with a custom dog tent!

4. A recliner lounge

Think you have to be sitting in front of a TV to enjoy a nice recline? Trust us, it’s much more peaceful in the outdoors. We found a camping chair that lets you put your feet up and has a built in wine glass holder. Where do we sign up?

5. Sleeping bag for two

Do you and your partner think sharing a tent isn’t getting close enough? We found a sleeping bag built big enough for two so you can get extra cozy during the cool, camping evenings.

Tandem 4in1 Sleeping Bag RRP $119.99

6. A three minute pop-up tent for 10

Remember when you went camping as a kid and it took mum and dad an entire day to set up the campsite? There are now family tents which literally pop up in three minutes - crazy!
