Free Search & Filter Functions

We recently released the new Free Version of our App, which allows anyone to find thousands of campsites right around Australia.  We have now just added a search and filter function that allows you to drill down on your search criteria and easily find sites that are relevant to your requirements.  Watch our quick tutorial video on how to find over 2,200 Free Camps or over 3,000 Campgrounds and Caravan Parks right around Australia.

Weather Overlay on Maps & Campsites

Also, due for release real soon, is the brand new weather overlay we have been telling you about.  See the 7 day forecast at your chosen campsite, including tide times, wind warnings, and even sunset/sunrise times.  We are in the final stages now as we have a version we are currently testing and debugging, but if you want to have a sneak peek, watch the video below to see how it will work.

Lifetime Membership Ending Soon

Just a reminder also that once the Weather Overlay is added to the App we will be ending Lifetime Membership.  Last week we announced that only 100 Memberships would be offered.  We had a great uptake on these membership and there are now only 22 left.

This will possibly be the last week we are running this offer, so to ensure your spot get in now.

All you need to know about collecting your new caravan

It’s Showtime again!  And with a host of Caravan and Camping shows well underway right around the country, it is a popular time for people to take the plunge and take advantage of some great deals on new caravans and motorhomes.  The shows are a great place to do this, but whether you are buying a display model, or ordering a new van that will take time to build and deliver, in each and every instance, you should undertake a thorough Pre Delivery Inspection.

To assist you further with this, we have provided an article from Colin of the Caravan Council of Australia.  In his article, Colin gives some great tips on what you should do when taking delivery of your new caravan or motorhome.

Tips & Tricks

This week we have a quick and easy tip from a Free Range Camping member, Rene.  Rene has found some great uses for the old pool noodle that are simple to prepare and to use in the caravan or motorhome.

Her first tip is for the Noodles that have a whole down the middle.  Simply slice along the entire length of the noodle and they can then be placed over guy ropes for higher visibility.

She has also used them to stop things moving around in cupboards.  Cut the noodle into the desired size you need, preferably a little oversize and use it to wedge between items to hold things in place.

Rene has used it here both vertically and horizontally to stop her plastic container moving around. 

Monthly Giveaway Reminder – The Strucket

In our last newsletter we told you about the Strucket.  A brand new product, the Strucket is a hybrid Bucket & Straining system that is ideal around the Campsite.  You can use it to wash and dry your dishes, store wet clothes, and our favourite, use it as a mini washing machine with its unique agitator action.

Don’t forget to tell us what you would use the Strucket for and go into the draw to win 3 of them for yourself.
