It’s the height of the summer, the better weather has finally arrived, it’s time to start making the most of your campervan.
If you’re determined to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of being on the open road in the next few weeks, have a read on how to make the most of your campervan this summer before the colder weather kicks in.
Ensure your camper’s in tip-top condition
Whether you’re going on a shorter journey to the nearest coast, or on a tour of the whole of Scotland, it’s important to ensure your campervan is in good working order before embarking on your trip.
Do everything you would before going on a long car journey, including checking the oil, tyre pressure, water levels and other important vehicle checks.
You might want the pure liberation and flexibility of just driving and seeing where the road takes you. However, as the summer months are a busy time for campers, it could be wise to plan your trip and book a place at campsites on route to avoid running the risk of everywhere being fully booked.
Pack the essentials
The summer might be the perfect time to explore the world in a campervan, but you’ll need to be prepared for what the hot months of July and August can throw at you.
To ensure your trip is comfortable and safe pack the summer holiday essentials including plenty of sun-cream, water, insect repellent, sunhats and more.
Plan your meals
When travelling in a campervan it can be a good idea to take the time to prepare for meals. You might plan to eat breakfast and lunch in the van and find a restaurant at dinnertime and therefore need to have a constant supply of provisions in the fridge and know where you are heading to pick up more provisions when you run out and find decent restaurants on route.
