As prices of consumer goods increase amid a cost-of-living crisis, many of us are looking for affordable ways to enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation.
With holidays abroad out of the question, many of us are looking into staycations. If you’re staying in the UK for your vacation, one of the best ways to explore hidden gems is in a motorhome.
Not sure what to pack? We’ve put together our top ten items below.
What To Pack For Your Next Motorhome Trip
1. A Portable Power Pack
Most modern motorhomes have plug sockets. However, they’ll only work when you’re connected to electrical power. If you don’t like going without your phone (and by phone, we mean social media), it’s a good idea to keep a portable charger with you – just in case.
2. First-Aid Kit
Although we hope you’ll never need it, always keep a first-aid kit handy. Be sure to stock up with a variety of plasters, sterile dressings, tweezers, and disposable globes.
3. Portable Water Filter
Drinking water is a necessity when you’re out and about. So, in the event you run dry, we’d advise keeping a portable water filter handy. That way, if you’re without fresh water, you can use the filter to turn water from natural sources into drinking water.
4. Outdoor Lighting
As well as making an Insta-worthy setting, outdoor lighting is extremely practical. It will make your motorhome safer (as you can see what you’re doing), and outdoor lighting gives you an ambient glow that helps you feel cozy and relaxed.
5. Toilet Paper
This one probably doesn’t need much of an explanation. Other than the fact that it’s regularly an overlooked essential! Make sure you pack at least a couple of rolls.
6. GPS System
Although relying on Google Maps is normally a safe bet, if you’re heading somewhere remote, it’s best not to rely on 4G.
Make sure to pack a trusty GPS system so you don’t get lost in the middle of nowhere.
Taking your toolbox is probably overkill, but you will occasionally need to do some fixing, especially in case of emergencies. For that very reason, it’s always a good idea to have a multi-tool at hand, just in case. On that same note, make sure to check your motorhome insurance is valid before you hit the road.
8. Insect Repellent
Mosquitos, midges, and ticks can put a damper on your holiday. To keep little biting creatures at bay, pack some insect repellent into your motorhome and enjoy bug-free evenings eating al-fresco.
Whether you need to clean off your furry friend after a muddy adventure or just fill your motorhome up with clean water, a hosepipe will get the job done in a jiffy.
10. Toilet Chemicals
Don’t let bad odors ruin your holiday. To keep your motorhome clean and fresh, make sure you stock up on bathroom cleaning essentials like bleach and disinfecting wipes.
