Essential Campervan Accessories for Your Road Trip


If you would like to have the freedom to explore the country at your own leisure without having to worry about sleeping arrangements, then a campervan would be an ideal investment for your needs. Typically, campervans will come fitted with most of the items that you need while out on the road. However, this does not mean that they will encompass all the essentials that would be prudent to your needs. This is why it is prudent for new campervan owners to take the time to determine what items that are lacking, rather than finding out while out on the road. Here is a brief list of essential campervan accessories you would require for your road trip.

A campervan awning

One of the biggest concerns about driving around in a campervan is making the most of the limited space that is available. The smaller your campervan is, the more important this becomes as your caravan can feel claustrophobic if you had to spend all your time inside it. To allow yourself to spend time outdoors without having to worry about the elements, you should invest in an awning. These awnings are multipurpose, as they do not simply provide shelter for you to create an adjacent exterior living space.

You can also use the awning to create a makeshift storage space at your campground where you can store items such as bicycles or ATVs. On the other hand, the awning can create a makeshift tent that people can sleep under, freeing up space in the campervan. Overall, an awning can provide you with additional flexibility when out on the open road.

Leveling blocks

An avoidable aspect of road tripping is that you cannot determine the quality of roads or campgrounds that you will be using. You need to be prepared for uneven ground that would most likely pose the risk of your campervan rolling away if not secured properly. To counter this, you should consider levelling blocks. These items function to make the inclined ground more even, thus making it easier for you to manoeuvre your campervan. In addition to this, you should also carry with you some wheel chocks. Once you have parked your campervan on the incline, you place the chocks behind the wheels of your campervan to prevent it from moving. Your wheel chocks can also come in quite handy in the event that you need to change one of your caravan's tyres.

Organising Fabulous Camping Holidays: A Camping Blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Michael, and I am an avid camper. In this blog, I plan to write about multiple aspects of camping with a particular focusing on organisation. With the right organisation, your holiday will be smoother, easier and more joyful than it could be. Among many other benefits, organisation ensures you know where the rain ponchos are when you need them, and it ensures you don't arrive to a full campground when you're exhausted. I love camping. Currently, I typically camp in a caravan with my wife, Michelle, and our two daughters, Mindi and Miranda, but in the past, I used to spend a lot of time solo camping in the outback or the bush. Thanks for reading!
