The Thule camping rubbish bin

That’s right, I’ve written a whole blog post about a rubbish bin.

Am I crazy? You decide…

If you’re a free camping or national park camping enthusiast then you’ll understand the importance of rubbish removal in campervan travel, because you’ll have experienced THIS along the way…

Waking up in the morning to find your rubbish and food scraps from the night before strewn all over your campsite as surprise, surprise, there WAS an animal that could somehow get on top of your campervan while you were asleep and managed to not only open the expertly tied together rubbish bag that was placed up there but also make a rubbish tip of the entire campground.

This, along with putting leaking week old rubbish bags inside our van when we finally moved on to the next camping spot was enough for us to spend some time thoroughly researching rubbish removal options for campervan travel.

Although technically a 4wheel drive product, the Thule bin is the best we’ve found so far.

  • It packs up extremely flat so takes minimal storage space when not in use.
  • It includes a connection point so that you can hook it onto the outside of your van.
  • It has a handy ‘animal proof’ opening/lid, which makes it easy for you to throw rubbish away, but impossible for birds and other marsupials to get to.
  • It’s made of sturdy, waterproof material, which makes it easy to hose down.
  • At a price of $80 it may seem like a big commitment but in the name of easy campervanning waste management we think it’s worth it!
