The last time I stayed in a caravan was many, many moons ago when I used to go on holiday to Scotland as a child with my siblings and parents. I wasn’t quite sure how our maiden voyage would go in the Adventure Van. It’s a bit different when you’re an adult. There’s a lot more to think about.
Having managed to finally book a caravan pitch after calling 6 different camp sites, all we had to do was pack everything we needed, hitch up the van and away we ago.
If only life was that simple.
Unless you do your research before setting off (which thankfully we did) you have to take into consideration the amount your car can tow and the weight of everything you want to take with you. Not to mention the nose weight of the caravan when everything is packed.
Yes, I know. Nose weight. Who knew?
With all the technical stuff checked, backing the caravan out onto a main road was a little bit hair raising. Thank goodness our van came kitted out with wheel movers and a remote...
