What to pack

What do I need to bring with me?

Based on our own years of motorhome holidays, we’ve produced our suggested checklist of items that you might consider packing. This takes into account the essential things we include in our motorhome hire, like plates, cutlery and cleaning supplies, leaving you more space to pack the fun stuff, like water pistols, BBQs and wine.

We’ve even created a downloadable checklist that you can print, so you can tick off the items as you go!

Bikes

All our motorhomes have a garage large enough to fits bikes or a bike rack fitted to the rear. Bike rides are a great way to explore your destination and get the whole family out together, so we always advise taking them along!
They are also very useful if you’re planning on staying in one spot for a while during your holiday. When you need to pop out to grab some milk for your morning coffee, instead of having to pack up the motorhome to drive into town you can just hop on your bike. That’s also why we usually recommend finding a campsite that is close to some trails or cycle paths.
