Get pow­ered up with Dometic

Holiday with Kids - - C&c In Touch -

While on the road you can some­times be with­out a con­ve­nient power plug in, but Dometic’s new light­weight pre­mium in­verter is here to save you from those car­a­van­ning woes. The MSI 412 can be con­nected to any 12V power source and will con­vert 12V bat­tery power into pure 230V AC volt­age. If you have any de­vices that can be charged with a USB in­ter­face, this in­verter can do that too, and it all weighs less than a kilo­gram. www.dometic.com

Aussies break car­a­van and camp­ing records

Aussie fam­i­lies just can’t get enough of the great out­doors. The lat­est vis­i­tor num­bers re­leased by Tourism Re­search Aus­tralia once again show sig­nif­i­cant growth in car­a­van and camp­ing hol­i­days. The year end­ing Septem­ber 2016 recorded the high­est over­all vis­i­tor nights (11.78 mil­lion nights) and record an­nual growth (13 per cent in­crease on the pre­vi­ous year) since 1998. Younger gen­er­a­tions are be­hind this resur­gence in pop­u­lar­ity, with 34- to 54-year- olds mak­ing up 46 per cent of Aus­tralian car­a­van­ners and campers, well ahead of the 55 years and over de­mo­graphic who make up 29 per cent of the mar­ket. www.tra.gov.au
