Although the last thing you may want to do is keep a track of the time when you are supposed to be relaxing and enjoying your caravanning adventure, one item you may still want to invest in for your tourer is a clock. Why not? Everyone loves a clock, don’t they? They really bring a room together and no reception area, living room or even kitchen in a home really feels right without a clock, so why not use the same thoughts and invest in one of the many caravan clocks out there.
As you’d imagine, there are many options out there. We would go as far to say that there may be too many and deciding between them might prove to be something of a headache for you. That’s where your friends here at Caravan Helper come in. We have browsed through the available options for caravan clocks and barometers and selected the items that really stand out as being worth investing in.
Caravan Clocks (Some Great Choices)
First in our guide to great caravan clocks is this Hicarer product featuring a 2.8-inch quartz diameter. This has a very traditional and elegant look with Arabic-style numerals in black on a smart-looking white face with a clear glass lens covering it and a plastic bezel trim. It is operated by battery, so doesn’t need to be hooked up to your tourer’s leisure battery or mains supply.
It is incredibly easy to setup and hangs securely from any wall or could simply be placed on the side somewhere where you could view it from.
The second option we have in the way of caravan clocks is also from the manufacturer Hicarer. This time it has a zinc-alloy colour finishing, with similar black Arabic-style numerals against a white face, with a clear glass covering and this time a silver-coloured bezel around the trim.
It comes with a built-in battery that will last for around 2 years and is very easy to mount in your tourer or wherever you intend on placing it.
From Acctim, a company known for their high-quality and high-end designs for time and weather measuring instruments like clocks and barometers, comes the next product we think would be ideal as a caravan clock. If you are more of a fan of Roman numerals than Arabic-style numerals, and like a bit of gold colouring, then this is a great option for your tourer.
It includes, like most clocks all three hands and even has 15, 30, 45 and 60-minute increments marked out along with 1 to 12. It takes just a single AAA battery and comes with a 1-year warranty.
Now, if you are looking for something with a little more character and personality than a traditional clock, and don’t need the numerals for each minute and hour of the day, then this next product may be ideal for your caravan. It is designed to resemble a caravan and has “Always at home, wherever we roam” written on it, which we think is a very apt phrase. It only takes one AA battery to power it and has just an hour hand and minutes hand. This may also be a great gift idea when you are buying for those quirky caravanners in your life.
Another quirkier design compared to the more traditional clocks featured towards the top of our list, the next comes from Azeeda. This has been constructed from MDF wood and has been designed by a designed called Leanne Mullen (for anyone interested and knowledgeable about that kinda stuff!). Although the hands and battery pack come separately in the box to the clock face, it is relatively easy to put together, so we don’t see this as a problem. It has a built-in loop for easy hanging on the wall and only requires 1 single AA battery. The Arabic numerals are black and easy to read, and it features a seconds, minutes and hours hand and has a stylish and retro sketch in the middle of the clock face.
This ultra-high-tech and modern designed digital clock does more than just tell you the time. From Mohoo, it comes with the option of being stood upright on an appropriate ledge or unit or can be hung on a hook on the wall. If you would prefer to place it on your fridge or somewhere similar it has a magnetic attachment option for this purpose.
As well as telling the time accurately., it can also display the humidity, temperature and has full touchscreen functionality, a nightlight and alarm clock.
It may lack the elegance and sophistication of some of the other caravan clocks featured above in this guide, but it simply can’t be faulted when it comes to the range of measurements it takes. This is also ideal for anyone who is a big fan of gadgets and gizmos.
Last, but certainly not least in our guide to the best caravan clocks is this 12-inch diameter classic model from Tebery. It features a rose gold colouring around the trim and features large and easy to read Arabic-style numbering with a minute, hour and seconds hand. The great thing is, like most clocks suitable for caravans, it does not make any irritating ticking noise which is likely to wake up the whole tourer, given how snug and compact caravans tend to be.
So, there you have it, if you really want to keep accurate time when you are away from home and don’t want to always rely on your technology, or if your home away from home just doesn’t feel like home without a stunning wall clock to bring the whole décor together, you have plenty of options above.
We only try to give you high quality products at Caravan Helper and that’s exactly what we have done with this post.
