Must-Have Accessories & Add-Ons For Your Conversion

When it comes to campervan conversions, the accessories and add-ons you choose can really make or break your experience using it.

Choose wisely and you’ll be enjoying a true home away from home that’s capable of facilitating all your needs while you’re out on the road. But get it wrong and you’ll be forever disappointed, wishing you’d put more thought into the design of your campervan conversion. 

In this post, we’ll be going over some of the most crucial additions for van conversions. These will help make your time on the road all the more enjoyable for you and your family.


Nothing beats a nice warm shower after a tiring day of exploring. Being able to wash away the grime you’ve accumulated throughout the day is a rejuvenating experience that keeps you feeling fresh and revitalised.

If you’re looking for the creature comforts of home while you’re out on the road then a shower is simply a must. It also helps you and the family maintain hygiene – after all, nobody wants to share a campervan with a bunch of people who haven’t showered for days!


If you’re away for a few days then you and the tribe will be going through quite a bit of food. Rather than eating out for every meal which can be not only expensive but also inconvenient, you can whip up your own grub with a cooker.

From hearty breakfasts to gourmet dinners, you can keep the whole family full without having to rely on fast food or pre-packaged meals. 

A cooker really does provide endless convenience so this is one addition that you won’t want to overlook.


There’s nothing worse than tucking into warm, soggy sandwiches and lukewarm drinks after a hard day of hiking. But thankfully you can avoid this culinary faux pas with a fridge/freezer in your campervan.

This essential accessory ensures that your food and drinks stay fresh and chilled, allowing you to enjoy delicious meals on the go without relying on ice or limited storage space. This addition really will prove to be a game-changer for you and your family, so don’t overlook a fridge/freezer.

Solar Panels

Chances are you’ll be using your campervan when the weather’s nice. So make the most of the sun with some solar panels as these will provide a cheap and sustainable power source while you’re on the road..

Your solar panels can help keep your gadgets charged, lights illuminated and appliances running without putting a drain on your vehicle’s battery or fuel. So if you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive way to make your adventures more eco-friendly, don’t forget to add some solar panels.


Most families will be heading off on their summer holidays when the weather’s hot, so an awning is a great addition as it helps extend your living space and keeps you protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It can also provide shelter if you encounter an unexpected storm, so an awning will be suitable for all weather conditions.

Perfect for alfresco dining or simply relaxing with a book, an awning enhances your camping experience by seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living.

Pop-Up Table And Chairs

Speaking of alfresco dining, you’re going to need some tables and chairs for that! These will help you transform any scenic spot into a dining area or relaxation zone with a pop-up table and chairs to accommodate all the family. 

Compact and lightweight, these stow away easily when not in use, yet offer invaluable functionality when you want to savour a meal or enjoy a leisurely sunset. It's all about creating moments of comfort and camaraderie wherever you roam.

Roof Rack

Last but not least, if you want to maximise your campervan's storage potential and avoid clutter then a roof rack will offer the perfect solution.

Whether you're taking bikes, surfboards or just plenty of clothes with you, this can all take up valuable space in your campervan. So by adding a roof rack, this provides a secure platform for transporting bulky items without sacrificing interior space. 

So those are the main essentials you’ll need for your campervan. Obviously, there may be some more, but kit your van with these at a bare minimum and you can bank on some incredible weekends away.
