Wi-Fi For Caravans

Australia is a wonderful country for Motorhome and RV cruising. It’s the best in the world, so keep all your loved ones updated on where you are with an update through social media or even text messaging them every day while out exploring this great land!

So you want to go on that caravan adventure in the great Australian outdoors. You and your kids may have Ipads or laptops that don’t have SIM cards. So how can they access the internet while you are in your favourite camping ground? There is nothing better than being in your favourite camping location in your caravan and being able to stream Netflix while you are snuggling up in bed while in your caravan, do online banking, and check online maps and research your next destination.

In this article, we will provide you with some great solutions for Wi-Fi for caravans. Over the last few years, I have been doing quite a few installations of mobile 3g/4g routers with SIM cards so travellers can have Wi-Fi no matter where they go. (as long as they have a 3g or 4g signal.)

The benefits of having a mobile Wi-Fi router for caravaning.

  1. You only need to pay for one data plan for everyone travelling with you to share.
  2. You are much more secure than using wifi that is supplied by the caravan park
  3. You can have a Telstra SIM (best coverage) for the caravan wifi and use cheaper plans for your mobile phones in the city. Telstra plans are usually 30-50% more expensive on average for what you get as far as data than you do Amaysim for example. But Amaysim will be struggling to get reception in the bush, where Telstra has a large amount of Australia covered.

So below are our picks for some great mobile 3g/4g wifi routers for caravans.

Here are a few tips on using your LTE mobile router while travelling on the road.

  1. You should also set up the speed limits on all your connected devices so they can get the best speed possible while roaming from one tower to another. (This is an advanced option)
  2. A simple method that I use for any traveller who wants to have internet access but also doesn’t want to be tied into contracts with Telstra or Optus or anyone else, just buy yourself a pre-paid SIM card and then put it into a device then you only need to pay for data while you are travelling in your caravan.
  3. The Netgear Nighthawk M2 has 2 x Antenna slots if you do happen to buy this unit, which I 100% recommend, then getting the 2 aerials for this unit will extend the strength of your signal. If you want to buy the aerials too you can click here to see more.
