Our Top Tips for Camping with a VW Transporter Campervan
Campervanning can have its drawbacks, most notably the weather. The stories of holidaymakers camping trips being good or bad tend to hinder on the weather. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about that! However, we can help by providing you with a few tips and advice, that we hope will make your holiday as smooth and as stress-free as possible.
Go for quality over quantity when packing.
Confession, I don’t follow this tip, but I wish I did! I can’t count the number of times I’ve packed something stating, ‘I’ll take it just in case’. But the more you bring the harder you’ll find space to store it. Despite the vast storage the VW Transporter campervan has to offer. If you overpack, your camper will feel cluttered and cramped. Only pack what you’ll need, and your van will feel spacious and comfy.
Leave the suitcases behind.
This follows on from point one, we advise leaving suitcases or packing boxes behind. The VW Transporter has cupboards draws and storage perfect you everything you’ll need when on the road and camping. Clothes can be packed into small spaces whereas suitcases can take up too much space.
Layers are key.
The weather can be unpredictable, sunny morning can quickly turn into a downpour in the afternoon. Even if it is a ‘summer’ holiday you’re going on, a hat, coat and some thick woolly socks are essential.
Plan, plan, plan
Whether it’s the destination, where to stay, the day’s activity or what/ where to eat – plan ahead! Having even a rough idea of your plans means less time is wasted and you get the most out of your trip.
Sleep & relax in comfort
Good sleep is essential for your trip success. Luckily VW Transporter campervan beds are comfy, spacious and warm. With proper bedding, they’re as good as your bed at home. Easy to set up and put away, if you’ve had a long day travelling, you’ll be off to sleep in a matter of moments.
