Top 5 Forgotten things for a campervan tripA campervan trip is like no other, it provides you the freedom to explore endlessly, to keep the adventure going. It’s a great way to go solo, or to spend time with loved ones and travel buddies. To maximise the fun, try to avoid forgetting these common items. Hire a motorhome, start your packing list now and ensure these 5 items are on top of the list!
1. ChargersNot just the case for campervan trips, but holidays in general! Maybe it’s because they’re often tucked away next to our bed, or perhaps we simply don’t think of chargers until we need them. But then when we need them, we’re heartbroken to notice their absence! While it’s better to stay off your phone as much as possible when travelling and exploring, to ensure you’re focused on the moment, this can still be a nuisance. Having a working phone is ideal for safety, and in case you get lost, and if nothing else can simply put you at ease. To help this a step further, bring a small power bank on your trip as well.
2. BeddingBedding can be easily forgotten for a campervan trip, given that most holidays don’t require bringing your own! If you’re renting a van, bedding may be included, so be sure to check that. If not, make sure to bring sheets, a duvet, towels and more. You can wash these along the way, as many campsites offer laundry facilities. If you plan to swim, pack extra towels for that too!
3. Kitchen EquipmentThis can be difficult, as you never realise how many items you use until they’re no longer available. It is also a struggle as you’ll cook differently in a van to your own kitchen. The ideal way to do this is to first spend one night or a weekend in a campervan, to realise what you miss before you head out on a longer trip. The most commonly forgotten items are:
- A corkscrew
- A tin opener
- A spatula/ wooden cooking spoon
