It's that time of the year again & we've already experienced our share of extreme wet weather, but we're determined not to let it take away from our holidays!
Last week my son, Cameron (pictured) got his fill of rain on a QLD camping trip. Lucky for him, upon his return he made great use of his Ausclimate Dehumidifier; drying out both his 4-wheel drive & his camping gear. This important step eliminated the moisture & prevented any potential nasty surprises for next time. He's already excited for his next trip tomorrow!
Make sure to follow suit with your Dehumidifier next time to get the most out of your camping gear and enjoy your next camping trip. Please refer to our previous camping gear post for step-by-step instructions. And as always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Allan or myself for expert advice and custom solutions for all of your moisture problems.

Been camping recently or planning your next trip? Make sure to dry out your camping gear with your Dehumidifier before packing it away for your next adventure!
Your Ausclimate Dehumidifier is the most effective way to dry out expensive camping gear, ensuring that there’s no nasty surprises for next time. Without proper moisture extraction of your camping gear after a trip, you could easily open yourself up to moisture damage and mould when rolling out the tents, sleeping bags, air mattresses and even your hiking boots/coats. Common signs include musty smells, the presence of moisture, overall dampness and the growth of unsightly mould and mildew. This not only destroys your expensive camping gear, but also has potential to affect your family’s health if re-used.
Here’s a couple of camping gear drying hints using your Ausclimate Dehumidifier:
- Bring the camping gear inside the garage or even a spare room within the home
- Drape everything over a clothes horse/airer, chairs or anything that will raise them off the floor and allow the air to circulate around them * Close the external windows and doors
- Turn on a ceiling fan or pedestal fan to circulate the air (not essential, but helpful)
- Turn on your Ausclimate NWT Dehumidifier and allow the Dehumidifier to do what it does best – remove the excess moisture from the room, including the excess moisture from all of your camping gear
The capacity of the Dehumidifier will influence the speed of the drying process. As example:
- The NWT Small Home Dehumidifier will dry out the camping gear effectively in a room size up to 20 square metres and remove up to 12 litres of moisture per day during the drying process
- On the other hand the NWT Supreme Home Dehumidifier will dry out the camping gear effectively in a room or garage up to 75 square metres and remove up to 50 litres of moisture per day during the drying process
Get the most out of your camping gear and enjoy your next camping trip!

At this time of year, many of us are returning from or planning our next caravan trip. As a caravan enthusiast myself, I thought it a good time to share some tips on how to protect your caravan or motorhome from the often overlooked threat of moisture.
Water leaks, condensation and general dampness can build up on the inside of your caravan especially during winter or summers humid months. It doesn’t take long before mattresses, furnishings, curtains etc get that horrible musty smell followed by unsightly and harmful mould. If moisture is left untreated it can lead to more serious issues resulting in rot and property loss. The most effective and efficient way to stop this is by using an NWT Dehumidifier from Ausclimate.
After returning home from a trip away or before you put your caravan in storage its good practice to dry everything out. It’s amazing how much moisture is absorbed from wet weather, cooking and general everyday use. You should run your Dehumidifier inside the van for around a day or so and then again every few weeks (this can vary depending on the weather and size of Dehumidifier). This will maintain the dryness required to stop any mould or musty smells from returning - protecting the inside of your caravan.
For good air circulation you should prop up your cushions and ensure all mattresses have adequate space for airflow. All internal doors, cupboards and draws should be left open and make sure you clean out the fridge freezer before leaving its door open. If you are unfortunate enough to experience a serious water leak, ensure you dry it out immediately with a Dehumidifier. Ausclimate’s Dehumidifiers are often used in the water damage industry; our models are capable of drying your caravan out to its original condition.
Water leaks, mould or musty smells can have a dramatic effect on the value and longevity of your caravan. Look after your valuable asset by keeping it dry.
