Need to know how to pack for a caravan holiday this spring or summer (if we get one)? We, here at KC Caravans, are clued-up on the essential steps to having an incredible static caravan holiday. If your static caravan break is slowly creeping up, do not fear. We want our customers to have positive, memorable experiences in their caravan ventures, without the faff of forgetting necessities. In case you have missed them, we recommend you add the fundamental holiday items below to your checklist.
Suitable Clothing For Our Summers
If you are going on a static caravan holiday, you will need to pack suitable clothing for whatever weather you might come across. Caravan holiday in the UK? We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be. So, British caravan holiday rules tend to be this: pack light and pack wise. Think about taking on board a few outfits that can be easily washed, will keep you warm and will keep you dry.
Static Caravan Kitchens
You should most be taking along the kitchen basics, including mugs, tea towels, washing liquid and surface spray. While some caravan sites might provide these basics, many do not. Don’t get caught out and make sure to include all the kitchen necessities, just in case.
Static Caravan Bathrooms
Yet again, while certain static caravan holiday sites may provide the standard bathroom essentials, many expect you to bring your own. You do not want to be caught in an awkward situation, like going to the loo without toilet roll, so get together your bathroom necessities. We suggest you purchase a waterproof washroom bag that you can fill with all the basics including toothpaste, soap, shampoo, conditioner and your toothbrushes. Toilet rolls and towels, of course, are also items you should include.
It is unlikely that you will spend the entire holiday tucked away in your caravan, no matter how luxurious, so you will need some outdoor gear. Chances are, you are on holiday in a beautiful, natural location by the sea or a forest. Long, muddy walks would seem to come as a part of the deal. Consider packing day bags containing sun cream, for bright spells, a map, snacks and water bottles, to keep you protected, hydrated and energised, throughout your adventures.
Static Caravan Emergency Kit
Despite how much we try and avoid these scenarios, we may find ourselves requiring some emergency kit. In case of injuries or illness, you will need a first-aid kit, containing all the basic medical supplies like disinfectant, plasters, painkillers, children’s medicine and antiseptic cream. Miniature sewing-kits are also useful for those annoying clothing malfunctions.
Detox From Your Phone
Many people use escapes to the countryside to detox from their electronic equipment. However, most of us cannot last a few days without checking our work email or updating our bestie. Most modern sites have Wi-fi these days, though be aware that they often charge ridiculous amounts for usage. It may be worthwhile to invest in a portable dongle or a mobile data deal from your network provider, for reasonable internet usage prices.
Portable battery packs are also great for charging up devices including phones and laptops, in case you find yourself without enough plug sockets. Whether you are enjoying a beautiful, modern caravan, purchased from KC Caravans, or are hiring from another provider, get organised and get prepared. We want you to have an enjoyable and unforgettable caravanning experience.
