Best Caravan Appliances of 2019:
Dometic RU Series Fridges:
The new Dometic RU Series are the most refined refrigerators on the market! The range offers extensively flexibility due to their thin and tall design. The range is offered in both 2-way compressor and 3-way absorption models and has two sizes: 188L and 224L. The tropical rated fridges have fully adjustable shelves, reversible door hinges and built in circulation fans for quick cooling performance.
We love... the easy to use and stylish control panel, which allows the user to select temperature, power source and modes including performance, silent and power-save!
Evakool Dual Zones:
The Evakool Dual Zone is one of the best caravan appliances money can buy. Why? Because these awesome appliances can be (almost) anything you want them to be. There are two separate compartments which you can set independently based on your needs: fridge-fridge, fridge-freezer, freezer-freezer.
The dual zones are powered by the world-renowned Danfoss compressor technology which means quiet and efficient operation.
Evakool Dual Zone has something for everyone with 5 sizes available: 43L, 51L, 62L, 80L and 96L. The smaller 43L, 51L, 62L capacities feature a single lid, while the 80L and 96L have two lids. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more convenient, the lids can be opened from either side and are complete removable. It's no wonder this incredible caravan appliance has become a firm favourite!
We love... the Wifi feature. Control your Evakool fridge using your phone or tablet via the Evakool App (available from App Store and Google Play).
Dometic Ibis 4 Air Conditioner:
This rooftop air conditioning unit is the coolest caravan appliance we could find. The Dometic Ibis 4 makes improvements on many of the industry-leading features of the highly sought-after Dometic Aircommand Ibis 3; which has been a leading air conditioner for caravan and RV's in Australia for many years. The Ibis 4 introduces a first for the RV industry: a dual-cylinder horizontal compressor. This powerful addition uses inverter technology to balance the unit out and reduce the level of vibration. This helps reduce the noise of running the unit whenever the compressor kicks in.
A major benefit of this unit is that it is significantly lighter than the Ibis 3 at only 40kg. Dometic were also able to reduce the rooftop dimensions to only: 758 x 230 x 1112 mm! This unit is suitable to fit 360 × 360 mm and 400 × 400 mm roof openings straight out of the box without the need for additional components or accessories. Definitely something you don't see often in the market!
We love... the turbo-mode speed which allows for accelerated cooling of your van! Plus we couldn't forget the electric touchpad controls.
