We are regularly asked, in our shop, for the best way to level a twin-axle caravan. We currently offer the Kojack twin-axle levelling jack and also large levelling blocks, but now there is a very simple solution from Milenco.
If you already have a set of Milenco Quattro (or Triple) levelling blocks, you can now purchase a “Bridge“. Simply place the levellers back to back and the bridge will allow you to drive up and over the top to achieve desired lift.
Ever had visions of owning your own campervan but never quite had enough money to fulfil the dream?
Well maybe those dreams can now become a reality by taking on a self build camper conversion. Scared? No need to be, all you need is a small selection of DIY skills and a bit of enthusiasm!
Over the coming weeks we will be adding different categories to our website for those wishing to embark on a self build campervan.
Products may not be added in the order that you wish to convert but more likely will depend on availability from our supplier, therefore the first category we have added are swivel bases.
If you have 2 front seats in your van (rather than a bench seat) then fitting seats is pretty straight forward. Simply unbolt the seat from the base, bolt the swivel plate onto the base, then bolt the seat and runners back onto the swivel plate. We find YouTube is often a great resource for help with installations.
Note that swivel bases are not universal therefore you will need to order the correct ones for your van and it’s year – we have listed all of the ones available with our supplier here.
It’s amazing the sense of achievement you’ll get from your own conversion….before you know it you’ll have the freedom to go where you want and take whatever you want with whoever you want!
You may remember some time ago we shared a blog about the nationwide shortage of Morco Water Heaters…..sadly there is still no availability of these boilers; it’s unlikely that there will be any in circulation for the foreseeable future!
However……it’s not all bad news because here at the caravan accessory shop we are able to offer an alternative to every Morco boiler that was on the market:
The Bosch W1359 is an ideal replacement for the Morco D61e and the D61b. With similar dimensions and same flue size you can replace your old Morco with this model. The great news is that it comes complete with fitting kit so there’s no need for additional purchases (unless you need a new flue which is the same one as you would used for the Morco).
If you’re looking for an alternative to the Morco G11 water heater then we have the Bosch W11. Once again it is a like for like alternative with similar dimensions and same flue diameter and comes complete with fitting kit. If you do require a flue kit you can find it here
For those of you that are looking for a room sealed appliance which can be sited in any location including narrow boats, trailers, shepherds huts and horseboxes look no further than the Widney Slimtronic Water Heater, it’s the equivalent to the Morco F11 EL which as you guessed is also out of stock until further notice! With this model there is the option of a horizonatal or vertical flue. Depending on which water heater you are replacing you may also need to use a mounting bracket which simply allows alignment of the water heater with an existing flue opening.
The country may be down on Morco Water Heaters but here at Caravan Accessory Shop we are most definitely not out!
It’s official…..whether you’re holidaying in your caravan, motorhome or tent, more people are choosing this type of holiday year on year!
A recent report from the National Caravan Council revealed data showing a booming market, with caravan sales up 13.7 percent in the first 6 months of 2017 compared to the same time last year. (quote Camping & caravanning Club magazine)
This is great news for us at the Caravan Accessory shop!
We have seen business go from strength to strength this year with record sales both on line and instore…
We have added 100’s of products to our ever expanding range of accessories and Spares category all available to order online at Caravan Accessory Shop
The shop had a revamp earlier in the year which allowed space for us to display Awnings and Sleeping Bags – perfect for customers to get a real feel for the products!
More products! More staff!
Watch this space…….
You may be aware that some time ago Calor announced the phasing out of the Calor Lite Gas bottles.
Following concerns about the longevity of the current model with a higher than expected number failing routine quality inspections they have decided not to invest anymore money into the product. Instead they are coming up with a completely new bottle!
…..So what does that mean for us who have the bottles???
*Caravan Accessory Shop do still have stock of the 6kg lite bottles so no need to worry just yet! (Available in store only).
*If there comes a time that you are unable to swap for a 6kg lite you will be given a normal 6kg propane which can be exchanged back to a 6kg lite when there is availability.
*All existing 6kg lite customers will be able to swap their bottles for the new bottle once it comes to market.
***Original 6 Lite Cylinder Refill Agreement (sometimes known as a 167) is required or alternative receipt or proof of 6kg Lite purchase.
For further information see the Q&A’s on their website.

BBQ – ‘A well known popular method of cooking, often associated with a social gathering which takes place outdoors’
This method of cooking and socialising is something celebrated and enjoyed the world over and we for one are big fans!
Here at Caravan Accessory Shop we offer a range of BBQ’s available in different shapes and sizes, and now we are very excited to anounce that we have added to our range with the Cadac Carri Chef 2 gas BBQ; an incredibly versatile barbeque with 3 interchangeable cooking surfaces offering an all in one cooking experience. No wonder it is the BBQ of choice for most caravanners!
Weighing just 15kg and supplied with its own handy carry bag it’s light enough to take anywhere – an ideal companion for caravanning and camping, picnics and fishing or simply staying home on the patio.

The portable Ice chest was invented in 1951 and later popularized by the Coleman Company in 1954. Since then we have come a long way in cooling.
Here at Caravan Accessory Shop we offer a range of products to keep your food and drinks cool whilst camping, travelling or on the beach.
Cool Boxes are becoming increasingly popular, so much so that we are continuously adding to our range.
The Waeco Mobicool W40 Cool Box 12V/230V offers a large 40 litre capacity; perfect for family camping trips. It comes with roller wheels and handle for ease of use and will run from a 12 volt power supply or mains electric.
For a slightly smaller capacity the Waeco Mobicool T35 Cool Box 12V offers the versatility of being able to operate up-right like a conventional fridge or flat like a chest cooler. It also has a warming mode, as well as a cooling mode, for use with hot food – our local chip shop uses a T35 when making deliveries.
The Kampa Cool Box is a great solution if space is tight or you are without electric hook up, as this cooler can be operated by using the cigarette lighter socket in the car. (It can also run from mains electric by using a mains transformer). We have 25 litre and 30 litre versions of this budget electric cool box.
However, this is just the tip of the Iceberg, (pun intended!). To see the complete range and for further information visit Caravan Accessory Shop in store or online.
