Van electrical system fitout
Home away from home with van life
There’s nothing more liberating than roaming the unknown — the places where roads aren’t actually roads, and the horizon has no end. To go off the grid, you’ve got to be on your game. You have to be prepared for every possibility, and your gear can’t let you down.
REDARC is here to power your adventure, from coast to coast, no matter what lies between, with rugged, Outback-tested battery chargers, battery management systems and customizable vehicle management allowing you to control every device from one central pad or your cell phone. Get the information you need on how to rig up and load out to be fully prepared for off-grid life.
Whether you’re making your way to your favourite campsite or your own secluded spot on the map, getting there is all about knowing your stuff and trusting your gear. Self-reliance starts with gaining some know-how and gives you the freedom to go off-grid and stay there.
BENEFITS OF OUTFITTING A VAN
One of the benefits when considering van life over other forms of travel is the lack of setup required. When you’re living in a self-contained van there’s no need to worry about getting to your next campsite with enough time or daylight to setup tents or caravans, simply park and crawl into bed. Being self-contained, with all your living fixed spaces inside the van, means that even a bout of bad weather doesn’t leave you sitting in the tent or hiding in the car until it passes.
TAKE MORE COMFORTS ON THE ROAD
One of the reasons many van lifers choose a van over other modes of travel is its customizability. Whether you’re building it yourself or having someone fit it out for you, the setup options are almost endless. Permanent beds, folding beds, kitchens, bathrooms, tables, drawers, cupboards, if you can dream it someone has probably put it in their van. Being such a growing movement there is no shortage of build inspiration out there, and there are very few limits to what you can include to make your van build perfect for you.
When adding a dual battery system to your van, you have extra battery power to draw on to run your fridge, camera gear or just necessities on the road. While adding solar panels means you can setup camp for days, even weeks at a time, and add charge back in to enjoy the moment even longer.
