Caravan Air Conditioner - beat the heat 2024

Explore the Ultimate Range of Caravan Air Conditioners at CaravansPlus for the 2023-2024 Summer Season!

As the summer season of 2023-2024 approaches, caravan enthusiasts and grey nomads alike are gearing up for their adventures under the Aussie sun. With temperatures set to soar, ensuring your caravan is equipped with a reliable air conditioning system is crucial for comfort and enjoyment.

CaravansPlus, a trusted name in the caravan accessory industry, presents an extensive range of air conditioners designed to meet the diverse needs of caravan owners. In this article, we'll explore the top picks from our collection, ensuring you can make an informed decision for a cool and comfortable journey.


Compact and Light Weight.

Understanding that weight is at a premium in smaller caravans, CaravansPlus offers a selection of compact roof-top air conditioners that deliver efficient cooling without too much weight.

Models like the Webasto Cool Top Trail 24 Air Conditioner are perfect for smaller caravans, providing excellent cooling capacity and energy efficiency in a small roof-top footprint.

This is our lightest and lowest profile rooftop offering, coming in at 29kg. Ideal where every kilogram of weight counts!

With its very impressive 2.4kw Heat and Cool, this light weight unit out performs many heavier counterparts!

What we like about the Webasto Cool Top Trail 24:

  • Big 2.4kW performance.
  • At 29kg its the lightest unit we offer.
  • Lowest profile in our range at only 215mm high. Class leading 3 year warranty.

    These units, including the popular FURRION 12000 BTU Rooftop Air Conditioner, which offers class leading powerful 3.5kW cooling and 3.6kW heating capabilities while being aerodynamically designed to reduce drag and fuel consumption.

    What we like about the FURRION 12000 BTU:

  • Massive performance for bigger vehicles. Dual fans for quieter operation.
  • Modern and sleek
  • Loaded with features.
  • 2 year warranty

    Under Bunk Air Conditioners for Discreet Comfort.

    CaravansPlus also caters to those who favour an unobtrusive cooling and heating solution with our range of under bunk air conditioners.

    The HB9000 Under Bunk by Cool-J is designed to fit neatly within your caravan's furniture, providing a hidden yet effective cooling system that doesn't interfere with your interior aesthetics, whilst being the ideal compromise for those who are limited by carport roof or shed door heights.

    What we like about the Cool-J HB9000:

  • Light weight 28kg
  • All in one 2.6kW Cooling, 2.7kW Heat Pump & Dehumidifier

    Under-Bench Air Conditioners for Discreet Comfort


    Portable Air Conditioners for Flexibility.

    Not all caravan owners require a permanent installation. For those seeking flexibility, our portable air conditioner range is the answer. Lightweight and easy to move. Whilst strictly not air conditioners, we do have some portable cooling solutions.

    CaravansPlus pick is the Katabat Rechargeable Mini Evaporative Cooler. This little unit bats above its average.

    Ideal for use in smaller wind up campers or tear drop trailers where a roof-top or under bunk solution might night be achievable.

    This is certainly not the the 6 inch cigarette lighter powered fan mounted to the crash pad of your nan's Datsun 180b!

    What we like about the Katabat:

  • Impressive 60m3/h airflow rate.
  • Rechargeable 6V / 4Ah Battery (approx 6hr run time).

    Also Consider:
    A Sunny Boy ice block. Certainly cooler than nan's Datsun.

    Best Overall Air Conditioner.

    Best overall goes to the Dometic Ibis 4. This is a well polished reliable unit with years of development for the harshest of Australian conditions.

    This is the product of the ultimate evolution which started with the legendary Aircommand range.

    Think Sandpiper, Wren and Cormorant, and it is no wonder why this is CaravansPlus best seller.

    What we like about the Dometic Ibis 4:

  • Proven pedigree.
  • Huge 2.6kw Cool and 3kw Heat
  • At 40kg, It is 8kg lighter than the previous model.

    STOP PRESS!

    Dometic have announced the discontinuation of the Ibis 4 model.
