The 12 Coolest Camping Kickstarters
1. Folding Firebox Stove
When space is so important to your camping trip, the Folding Firebox Stove solves that problem with ease! The Folding Firebox's larger size and sturdy construction makes it stable enough for a large dutch oven, yet it can be used with cookware as small as a camping cup. The Folding Firebox Stove is also easy to set up. It effortlessly opens into position, and when it's time to go it folds flat - ready to slide into your pack.
2. The Quickboat
The team at Camplify love the possibilities of Quickboats. Being able to pack a boat inside your caravan is AWESOME! From bag to boat in seconds! It’s easy to unfold and will transform from two bags into a rigid, fast and capable boat that is just itching to get out on the water. For children, adults and even retirees, the Quickboat can be assembled in minutes. If you are really fast, it can be done in a minute or less with two people.
3. Tow Go
Seeing the TowGo made one of our developers’ eyes light up (he is a bit of a towing novice). TowGo™ enables you to back up your trailer easily and precisely without all the guess work of which way and how much to turn the steering wheel. Never again will you have to endure the frustration or embarrassment of trying to backup your trailer over and over again to get your trailer in the right spot. Two sensors and a smartphone app are all you need to be backing up with your trailer like a pro. Never jack-knife again!

So what is Camplify?
We are Australia’s largest caravan hire and RV sharing community, in partnership with the NRMA, helping connect thousands of holidaymakers with RV owners.
What does that mean?
Essentially, we provide a unique sharing service where owners of caravans, camper trailers, motorhomes, and campervans list their RV for hire while not in use. As an owner, this enables you to earn some serious dollars instead of having your RV just sitting around while you’re not using it.
As a holidaymaker, Camplify helps you find an RV that is perfect for you so you can experience the joys of caravanning - without having to own one yourself.
