Caravan Privacy and Sun Screens: What’s the Difference?

Are you tired of crowded surroundings, nosy neighbours, and glaringly hot sun? If so, then you are definitely not alone. While caravan camping can be relaxing, sometimes we’d just prefer a bit more privacy, especially when taking advantage of popular caravan park locations and on-site living.


If you’re in this type of crowded situation, then you may want to look into caravan sun and privacy screens. These handy caravan additions have boomed in popularity as more and more people are beginning to partake in caravan camping adventures and leaving the bricks and mortar.

We have put this article together to go over everything you should know prior purchasing either a caravan sun or privacy screen.


Caravan Sunscreens

Many new campers, unfamiliar with camping terms, are often confused about the difference between a sun and privacy screen. In general, sunscreens are strictly geared towards providing shade and shelter from environmental elements, like rain, heat and windy conditions. They are usually installed along the end or side walls of a caravan, to block and minimise Australia's harsh conditions.

Campers can then sit between the caravan and sunscreen, shielded from the heat or rain, and able to enjoy a bit of shade. Depending on their make, some sunscreens can also act as a privacy room. Ultimately blocking you from the view of nosy neighbours, peering eyes and giving you the shelter, we have come to expect from our extended tours away.


Privacy Screens

Privacy screens are extremely similar to sunscreens. Like sunscreens, privacy screens also create a barrier of privacy from your nosy Joe Blow next door. Whilst we all love a chat on our vacation some of us love the privacy guaranteed by the shade barrier between our set up locations.

For even more space, some campers opt for fully-annexed privacy rooms.These privacy rooms are made up of four separate walls and They also have a full-sized door, with many styles also displaying features like screened windows.
