More and more people are investing in caravans. Whether you buy them brand new or used, caravans are becoming wheeled homes for many young people in our country.

If you love to travel, to discover new places and people, then a caravan vacation is ideal for you. A special adventure awaits you that will make your weekend getaway or longer really special. Each caravan holiday can be unique.

Not everyone can invest in their own caravan, but everyone can rent such a vehicle for a different vacation. Take your family or friends and cross the country far and wide.

Perhaps the pandemic has also contributed to this trend. What is certain is that people feel the need to get out of the concrete city and communicate with nature.

Families with children realize that the human-nature connection and fresh air contribute to the beautiful development of their little ones. Pollution, stress, and chaos in urban areas have pushed people to make lifestyle changes.

Caravans are a great solution for weekend getaways, vacations, or simply days when all you want is peace and beauty. They are fully equipped with a kitchenette and a mini bedroom for sleeping.

Some come with an outdoor shower, as well as many accessories for personal comfort. However, you need to know what you need for your first caravan trip, so we come to your aid with only good ideas to put into practice:

Tent, coffee table, and chairs

If you own a caravan, you need a tent. Especially if you love hiking in the mountains, leaving your caravan in a safe place and then starting the route is a familiar experience, but so beautiful, especially in the summer.

What a great feeling to sleep in a tent on the top of the mountain! Also, get a coffee table and chairs that you can find in any DIY store. You will need them for country meals that you will enjoy after a long journey admiring nature.

Vital things

We are referring here to cosmetics and personal care products that you should take with you in your luggage. You need dry shampoo, face cream, SPF 50 cream, micellar water, cleansing wipes, lip balm, hairbrush, nail polish, tweezers, and a file.

Don't forget the insect and mosquito spray. You also need towels, hand sanitizer, a special bag to pack your dirty clothes, and a small bag of detergent, especially if you are going on a long vacation and you need to wash clothes.

First aid kit

Buy a first aid kit from the pharmacy or online sites because you never know when you'll need it. You can create your personalized medical kit for your needs.

Spare wheels

You can't go without a spare wheel. You don't know when bad luck is knocking on your door, so be careful. Add a tool kit to the trunk.


You don't have to bring your wardrobe with you. Being summer, add your favorite swimsuit, the tracksuit that you should not miss, as many socks and intimate items as possible. Raincoat, if you go to the mountains is also necessary.

Add tights, jackets, and long-sleeved blouses for cold nights. Otherwise, take your shorts with you, blouses and T-shirts. Get your clothes as light and colorful as possible to withstand the great heat outside. Don't forget mountain boots and trekking poles.

Safety matters

Since nothing is more important than the safety of your personal and family, we suggest that you also install a wireless surveillance camera that will notify you when an irregularity occurs in front of the caravan. It is especially necessary if you go hiking and leave your car in a parking lot or a more secluded place.

So, are you ready for adventure? We wish you a pleasant relaxation and as many successful pictures as possible for your family's memoir.
