Caravan or Trailer Camping

Fri May 25, 2012 10:59 am

We started camping 6 years ago and here is some info to help make it a wonderfull experience

- Dont buy every gadget you see, u seldom use them and it only takes up space and adds weight to your caravan or trailer

- If on a tight budget use the food u would have used when you stayed at home, dont spend extra money on unnessary luxuries.

- If you camp with a caravan only pitch your rally tent and your ground sail, with practise it will take you about 20 minutes to set up.

- Lastly for now, just enjoy your trip and remember your holiday starts when you leave home.

A small tip from my side concerning camping:

- Try and spend at least two to three nights in one camp, breaking down and setting up camp wastes a lot of time and becomes tedious.

- In the summer months it is always handy to have a spade with you. If you see the weather turning nasty, dig small trenches to channel water away from your tent.

Great Advice guys!!

From my side:

- Especially with a tent, take a broom and saw off the top part. use this to clean your camping site of small rocks and thorns that could prick a hole in the tent floor.

- A ground sale underneath also helps, make sure it sticks out in front, just enough to wipe your feet before entering the tent - especially useful when raining.

Rectangular rubber car matts placed at the tent entrance are useful for keeping gravel out of the tent.
