The sticky heat of an Australian summer can be stifling, especially in the Northern Territory, Queensland and West Australian tropics. We Australians claim to be pretty tough, but not that tough.
Hot weather in any place can be a fun killer.
That’s why Trayon have included a nice little 12 Volt fan in our list of optional extras. This small gadget can be one huge saviour, and the perfect remedy when sleep is made impossible by the heat.
It’s a three speed, 360 degree adjustable unit which can be plugged into any of the three sockets available in a standard Trayon slide on camper. It keeps fresh air circulating inside the camper day or night, preventing hot sticky air surrounding you.
The best part is, one fan can run for weeks on one full 120 Amp Hour (AH) AGM battery!
The main problem with other aftermarket fans is that they may not suit a Trayon very well.
The difference between our Trayon fan and every other fan is that we ensure it perfectly suits the design of a Trayon slide on camper.
For example, each fan has two pole clamps at its rear, so you can attach the fan to the centre pole of the open camper, then angle it wherever you want.
You can angle it up to the roof, the bed, lounge, kitchen, or straight between the eyes if that’s what is required! You could also run one on either side of the camper to create a strong and constant circulation.
We make sure that the power cord is long enough to reach a socket no matter where you clip the fan.
We also use larger power cables to provide an unhindered current to the fan, which maximises energy efficiency.
We get many customers asking us to install air conditioning inside their Trayon.
We can actually do that, if it’s really desired. However, to use it outside of powered camping areas, you’re going to need a generator. And this comes with a number of serious disadvantages when driving and camping in the Outback.
So, sure the aircon is an option, but the 12 V fan is cheaper, can run forever (as in 200 hours) on a single battery, has no ongoing fuel costs, is silent to nearby campers, saves spaces, and adds no extra weight to the Trayon’s unique lightweight design.
