Camec has a proud history of manufacturing quality windows, doors and vents for the caravan industry. In more recent times using their years of industry experience, they have started to produce their own range of accessories. Manufacturing the most popular caravan products and even leading the field with new concepts.

A caravan accessory that is growing in popularity is the caravan washing machine. Having the convenience of being able to clean your clothes wherever you are is something a lot of caravaners a taking advantage of. With the prices of the washers coming down and the quality increasing a lot of people are upgrading from the earlier twin tub style to the fully automatic washing machines now available.
Camec have 3 units & 2 styles to choose from, the 2.5kg & 3kg top loaders and the 4kg front loader. The top loaders are a more compact lightweight option which are well suited to touring caravans. The smaller capacity and reduced weight are the main benefits of this style machine. The 4kg front loader is larger heavy option which is preferred by onsite caravaners. The benefits of front loading washing machines are they have a low water consumption and are considered better at cleaning clothes than top loaders.
The Camec 2.5kg washing machine is a fully automatic unit which has 7 washing cycles, multiple water level choice, but is a cold water only unit.
The Camec 3kg washing machine allows hot & cold water washing. Has 6 washing programs with multiple water level settings and a 900 RPM spin cycle.
The Camec 4kg front loader is a hot/cold washing machine. It has 15 washing programs to choose from with a 1000 RPM spin cycle, which great reduces drying time.
In 2017 Camec released their range of Premium Caravan Covers, all come standard with a 3 year warranty. The range includes covers to suit Camper trailers, Pop tops and full height Caravans, and will protect your caravan from the elements, and reduce premature decay.
Discovering the limited life span of earlier covers which only had a 1 year warranty, the 3 year warranty gives a good indication of the quality of the material used to construct the new premium range. Driven by the demand for higher quality covers, Camec has invested the time at the design stage to create a new industry standard.
The covers have been made with dual layers of fabric to achieve a light weight breathable cover that is also durable enough to withstand the harsh Australian conditions. To overcome the issue of the early deterioration, the new covers have a 300D water resistant UV 50 plus roof section. This section extends slightly down the sides to cover the roof corners which are high ware areas and prone to damage.
The sides are made from a water resistant highly breathable fabric which includes multiple vents. This design ensures your caravan drys quickly after rain to prevent mould and mildew growth. To complete the design they have also incorporated a reinforced skirt with dual nylon clips providing maximum strength for secure fastening.
Camec have been Manufacturing caravan windows & caravan doors for Australian caravans for decades. Camec's main manufacturing facility is located in Melbourne, with their range of windows and doors not only being designed for Australian conditions but are also built here too. They are made from high quality materials and constructed to survive harsh outback Australian conditions.
Camec Wind Out Windows (WOW) are an Australian industry standard and would be the most commonly installed window in earlier model caravan and still have a huge market share today. The Camec Odyssey window range is the newest version of these classic windows previously know as Jupiter or Australite.

These durable windows are made with a powder coated aluminum frame, tinted single glazed acrylic panel and a removable fly screen. The top hinge windows can be opened to a 70 degree angle by using the winder handle which can be placed at either end of the window.

When levelling a single axle caravan you only need raise one wheel, so why buy a pair of ramps. Camec caravan levelling ramps come as a complete kit to suit one wheel. They include a levelling ramp, wheel chock, anti-slip plate and carry bag.

There are a lot of camper trailers and caravans that still use the simple hand pump. The old black or white plastic handles have remained the same for years, until now. With the Camec Chrome Hand Pump you can easily upgrade the look and feel of your Caravan. The manual hand pump is constructed with a modern looking metal handle and spout. It is a direct replacement for other hand pumps like Trojan or Breha , and can be swapped out in a matter of minutes.
Weight Distribution Hitch's are sometimes be referred to as caravan sway bars, whatever you call them they can be a great towing aid. Here's how they work.
When to much weight is applied to the tow ball the rear of the car sags and the front raises, this greatly effects the handling (steering and stopping) of the car. WDH's are used to spread the weight being applied to the tow ball, keeping the caravan and tow vehicle level.
There are different grades of WDH, which one you need depends on how much ball weight you have. Camec have their own brand in the lightweight range but for large caravans they offer the Pro Series WDH's. Additionally they have released the Camec Ball Weight Scales. This product is used not only used to determine what size WDH you require, but is very handy to ensure you have correctly loaded your caravan before hitting the road.
The Pro Series Weight Distribution Hitch (WDH) offers the same high quality as the Hayman Reese weight distribution hitch with a more competitive price tag. They come complete with a Reese Shank and rated the same as a Hayman Reese hitch.
If your camping in tents or your caravan doesn't have an ensuite, you can make your life a bit more comfortable with a Camec portable toilet.

Camec are continually creating ways to make life on the road more comfortable. With a large research and development team there is always something new and exciting from Camec on the horizon. Happy Travels
