When starting out on your camping, caravanning or motorhoming journey, a great deal of thought, research and planning goes into kitting out your set-up. Having all the must-have items to help your trip go smoothly is essential as without them, and away from home, you could be at a loss.
Not having certain things can really have an impact on your holiday; all the little extras and creature comforts really make the experience enjoyable. If you’re without a few things that you really need, it can have a detrimental effect on your break, making it harder to relax and unwind.
The lesson here is to ensure that you have all you need well in advance of your trip away! Whether it's your first trip, or it's simply time to refresh your accessories, make sure you have all the bases covered. So what are the top things to consider?
Outdoor furniture - chairs, tables and storage.
Kitchen and cooking accessories - think pots, pans and kettle!
Homeware and utensils - cutlery, crockery and the all-important mugs!
BBQ - for some alfresco dining, Cadac specialise in compact BBQs ideal for caravanning.
Washroom items - think shower mat and fluffy towels!
Water carriers - essential for getting clean water on board.
Electrical items - the all-important hook up cable and any desired outdoor lighting.
Fire safety items - a fire extinguisher and fire blanket are essential for small flames, but think safety first!
An awning - regardless of what type of leisure vehicle you have, there are awnings to suit all, and in all shapes and sizes.
At Winchester Caravans and Motorhomes, Vango is one of the suppliers we stock due to their versatile ranges and great value for money. Vango has a focus on quality and innovation in their products, which are well-regarded for their durability and performance. They are a popular choice amongst outdoor enthusiasts including campers and caravanners alike!
Vango offers many items that can make your leisure vehicle experience much more comfortable - from storage for keeping your awning well-organised and clutter-free, to furniture that will make outdoor dining and lounging possible and sleeping items that will help you nod off in an instant!
