Pack Useful Items and Necessary Items for your Caravan Holiday.
PACK USEFUL ITEMS AND OTHER NECESSARY ITEMS
This is the thirteenth page of 23 with related information about making the most of your caravan holiday. At the bottom of this page I have links to the other pages and I suggest you check these out as well.
Page 12 discusses what food, cooking equipment and clothing to pack. This is dealing with other useful and necessary items to pack for your caravan holiday.
Pack a couple of sets of sheets, pillow-slips, towels including beach-towels and tea towels. You will not need the entire contents of your linen cupboard, but you do not want to have to plan your holiday around your next laundry wash. For beach use, pack separate towels that can be used a few times without washing.
Think about what you use around the house on a day-to-day basis and pack useful items accordingly. You will need some cleaning products (sorry “house-work” still goes on) and utensils; dish-washing detergent; an all-round cleaner; sponges; garbage bags and a dustpan and brush. You will probably also need a broom and mop to clean your floors. A bucket is a versatile item to have and should be included.
You will need all the usual toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving gear, soap, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant etc and toilet paper. Unless you really want a hard-to-get product, there is no need to pre-buy sufficient supplies to last your entire trip. Matches and a torch are also essential items.
Remember to pack useful items like pegs and detergent, and keep a good supply of coins for use in washing machines and dryers. If you still use the old film camera and not a digital, an empty film container makes a good storage unit for 20c, $1 and $2 coins.
A portable clock-radio makes a good companion, and then if you are sitting outside, you can still listen to the radio. Take something to while-away your time. Take a carefully selected supply of books and other reading matter. Do you play board games or do jigsaw puzzles? A pack of cards is always handy, especially when you invite your “new friends” over for a game. A camera is essential. A video or digital recorder will further help preserve memories of your holiday.
8 Planning Your Trip (when to travel, weather, school and public holidays, local events, finding your way, GPS, maps and guides, visitor information centres, permits, Aboriginal land, National Parks, private land)
Hopefully, after digesting all this information you will have a fantastic caravan holiday. (With many more extended trips in the future). If you find it all too hard have a look at where Our Tours go and you may wish to consider one of these.
