Make A List
Every time you go out on a caravan camping trip you learn more about yourself and what you like about caravanning. With that in mind, it is worthwhile for you to compile a list of what you would like to bring on your next trip. Afterwards, you can keep adding new stuff to this list – after each trip – as you continue learning more about what you enjoy on the road and camping.
You can also use this list to create a checklist for every trip you take.
Before you go out on a caravan camping expedition, it is recommended that you start by researching the general area you will be travelling to. For the best experience, you should have a good idea of the route you will be driving along, any must-see attractions and suitable camping spots, among others. Your research should also cover local weather conditions and the nature of the soil/ground you will encounter.
All this information will not only help you create an itinerary but also ensure that you prepare accordingly for your upcoming trip.
Get A Set Of Everything For Your Caravan
If you don’t want to keep packing and unpacking your caravan every time you are about to go on a camping trip and after returning from one, it is important that you get a set of everything for your caravan. This applies to things like utensils, bedding, first aid kits, equipment, games, toiletries, camping equipment, and even a bag for your dirty laundry. Having separate stuff for your caravan also minimises the risk of forgetting to pack something from your house during the day of the trip.
Caravan camping makes it possible for camping enthusiasts to enjoy the comforts of home, out in the wilderness. However, it’s impossible for you to bring everything on your trip due to the limited space in the caravan. To save on space, it is recommended that you follow some space-saving tips. For instance, you can use tiny tic-tac boxes to carry all your spices and herbs instead of using larger spice jars. You can also hang all sorts of stuff including sauces, barbecue tools, insect spray and cleaning rags off a hanging shoe rack.
To save even more space, and with it, accommodate more stuff in your caravan, always be on the lookout for more practical space-saving tips.
Keep Your Van Ready For Your Next Trip
No one wants to start cleaning their caravan just before they are about to go on an exciting camping trip. To save you from this hassle, it is recommended that you clean your caravan and everything in it, just after returning from a trip. This way, it will be ready to go, the next time you plan on going on a trip.
If you packed your tent while it was wet, remember to erect it at home to ensure that it is completely dry before storing it away; otherwise, you might find it covered with mildew the next time you take it out.
Caravan camping is a great way to experience the great New Zealand outdoors. To ensure that you get to enjoy your travelling and camping experience, the next time you plan on going on a trip, be sure to follow the above caravan camping tips.
