The always forgotten camping items

Here is a list of the items we always find ourselves without when we get away for a weekend, we may have run out and forgotten to re-pack or forgotten them to begin with but these bits and pieces are undoubtedly always needed on any campervan trip:

  • Bin bags.
  • Plastic zip lock sandwich bags.
  • Dishwashing liquid or better still, one of those Dishomatic sponges where you can fill up the liquid in the handle, saves taking a separate bottle of liquid.
  • Paper towelling or toilet paper.
  • Tea towel.
  • Tea bags.
  • Mozzie repellent or candle.
  • Tupperware containers.
  • Butter/margarine.
  • Tea spoons (not part of our camping cutlery set).
  • ANOTHER towel or sarong (for the beach, for your shower, for laying on the grass, we take 2 per person).
  • Enough warm clothes (a beanie, scarf or gloves is always handy to keep in your van for those surprisingly chilly nights).
  • Surface spray to clean your camping table.

 If you have anything to add to this list at all please email us or comment on this blog!

    I think 2 bowls, one for snacks and one for making a salad in are a must. Preferably collapsible if you can find them…..can’t have relaxing drinkies without chips and it’s far too uncouth to eat out of the packet……
