Caravanning is fun and thrilling. But before you say, “I want to buy my caravan”, you need to prepare well in advance for your first caravanning adventure. Caravanning is a new and different adventure by itself. It is a great way to see the country and you will enjoy it immensely. Here are some tips to make your trip successful.
As with all other travel plans, make your checklist and go through it.
Have you included a towing aid? Did you add essential caravanning items such as wheel chocks, sway control device, fire extinguisher, towing mirrors, caravan jack, a spare fan belt, insulation tape and extra coolant and oil?
Check online for caravanning sites like We Buy Caravans that give you insights into caravanning essentials and caravan valuations.
Check if your caravan is secure and the vehicle is safe enough to be on the roads. Check for towing aids, drawers, windows and doors. Secure loose parts and ensure you have checked the lights of your vehicle and the tyres.
You are going to be driving a caravan, which is not the same thing as driving your car. Remember this at the time of commencing your first caravanning adventure, and during the trip.
Travelling at high speed drains your caravan of its fuel. You also need to avoid the desire to swirl if wild animals stray onto your path.
If you don’t abide by these unsaid rules of caravanning, you’ll soon be saying to yourself, “I want to sell my caravan!”
Enjoy your caravanning! Enjoy your slow driving!
It pays to rise early and for those on caravan trips, it definitely does. If you can rise early and hit the road before the traffic piles up, you can be on your way well on time.
You may be used to large and roomy homes, but a caravan makes you believe the world is a small place. Confined spaces are the norm with most caravans and you must get used to this mode of living.
If you are on your first caravanning adventure, you must be mentally prepared for living in confined and small spaces.
It is important to note that the others in the group or family must know a thing or two about caravanning. From reversing the caravan to parking to finding your way, make your team work.
Every fellow caravanner is bound to give you advice. Remember, you don’t have to follow every advice that comes your way.
You will need more than just the regular clothes and food for your caravanning trips. Make sure you have packed everything because it may be difficult to find shops and hotels that can provide you with what you are looking for.
