2. Navigator Collapsible Bin Buddy

Only a true caravanner knows the importance of having a good bin. And that’s why I can’t recommend highly enough the durability of the Navigator Bin Buddy. It features a large heavy gauge zipper opening with clip in buckles to keep those dreaded blow flies out and trap the smells in. As well as a heavy duty sealed lining for moisture protection, making it easy to clean. Grab handles on each side with a large zip pocket at the front to store spare bin liners – and by the way it takes 82L garbage bags.
