Essentials for Your Caravan:

  1. Documentation: Don’t forget your driver’s license, registration papers, insurance details, and any necessary permits for your campervan.
  2. First Aid Kit: Ensure your kit is well-stocked with essentials like band-aids, antiseptics, pain relievers, insect repellent, and any personal medications.
  3. Toolbox: Pack a basic toolkit for any unexpected repairs or adjustments that might be needed on the road.
  4. Maps and GPS: While technology is your friend, having physical maps as a backup can be a lifesaver (especially in the more remote areas!)
