When we first looked into off-road travel and the right gear, we were overwhelmed by the huge range of products available. We tried out a few things and regretted some of them. But we wouldn’t want to miss out on the following products. Where possible, we have provided you with an Amazon affiliate link to the products. Yes, we earn money if you buy something through one of our links, but our recommendation is sincere and honest. We promise.
Quick Pitch Roof Tent
Aluminium hard-shell roof tent. Resistant to external forces, sheets can remain in the tent, fast pitching and folding, accessories can be attached to the tent frame.
Quick 270° Awning
In just 20 seconds, this awning folds 270° around the car to provide shade in the sun and keep you dry when it rains.
Gardena Roll Fix water hose
Never use publicly accessible water hoses! Chances are good that someone else has already held it in a faeces tank.
MAXTRAX MKII Mudboard
Sand not as load-bearing as you thought? Put the board in, drive out, done.
Handheld radio unit
A real-time radio connection is useful. For example, when the co-driver keeps an eye on the ground clearance from outside.

What’s important when it comes to a cooling box? It should consume very low energy, should hold the temperature for a long time, should have temperature selection, should be able to use 12V/24V in the car or 220V landline. Here it is.
