You have to look at your campervan as you would do your home. Not only will you be spending hours of your day in there, but it needs to be warm, welcoming and comfortable to ensure you have the best experience possible. Whether you’re travelling short-term or living on the road permanently, there are four key features that you need to consider in detail to ensure your campervan is a place you can feel at home.
Your Campervan Itself
The type of campervan you choose is completely down to practicality. You need to invest in a campervan that is going to be accommodating, comfortable and suitable for the type of travelling you want to do. There are so many different campervan models to ensure that your van is perfect for you, so it’s really down to your personal preference. It’s important to make sure your campervan is efficient, reliable and durable too, as you don’t want to spend lots of money converting a van that is going to end up letting you down or proving difficult to travel around in.
It goes without saying, but one of the most important features to consider when converting your campervan is the electricals. Electricity is a huge benefit when travelling, especially if you’re taking wild tracks that may not have access to electrical points for a while. It’s always important to make sure the electricals are in good shape and tested by a local garage. You can then focus on key items that are required for your travels, such as a fridge. Having a fridge in your campervan is one of the best things you could possibly invest in. There’s nothing better than being able to keep your fresh produce, dairy items and, of course, your beers cool and fresh!
A Comfortable Bedroom
Travelling in a campervan is always a great adventure, but if it wasn’t for your comfortable campervan bed, you might not think the same. Campervans are great because you can transform them into a home from home, adding personal touches to make it work for you. Converting the space into a cosy living area can seem like a challenge, but as long as you introduce a comfortable, cosy bed to the space then you’ll be good to go. Adding a comfortable bedroom area to your campervan will provide you with a positive travel experience, as well as add character to the vehicle. There is a selection of different campervan beds available to choose from, such as a rock and roll bed, RIB beds and even sofa style pull out designs.
Plenty of Storage
When it comes to going on holiday, many people struggle to stick to the luggage allowances and restrictions for what can and can’t be taken. Travelling the open road in your campervan enables you to pack whatever you need, with nobody there to stop you. You do, however, have to take into consideration the limited space available in your campervan. If you’re travelling alone then you often find you have plenty of room to store all of your essential items with ease, but when it comes to travelling in numbers it’s a different story. Ensuring your campervan has plenty of storage is very important. The last thing you want is to have bags of essential items and nowhere to put them. You can utilise the space you have really well when it comes to storage, making the most of the space under the bed, sofas and even adding roof racks to store the larger items such as suitcases or boxes.
