The Campervan Packing List

Why have we created The Campervan Packing List? We have all been there when setting off on holiday. Halfway to the airport or campsite and BANG, anxiety kicks in. Did I pack my licence? Where is my passport? Did I turn the cooker off?

Its all too common so we have compiled ‘The Campervan Packing List’ of what we believe to be the absolute essentials. Things anyone and everyone should be taking with them on every camping/caravanning and motorhome holiday.

Obviously some of these will be included in your motorhome rental package, be sure to ask for a full list of those, then you can quickly check them off.

If you are unsure about any of the items you may need, there are plenty of advice forums out there, our particular favourite is:
