Camping in a camper van is a great way to spend your vacation. Campervans usually have comfortable sleeping accommodations, and many modern conveniences. Even if it rains, you will still stay dry and they are not so big that they burn through a lot of gas.
Most camper vans have a small kitchen with a fridge (which can be powered by gas, a battery, or main electricity) and a two-burner gas stovetop and oven. They also equipt with interior lights that can be powered by either a battery within the vehicle or they can be powered by hook-ups supplied by campsites. The larger models often have a portable toilet, water heater, space heating, an internal shower, and even air conditioning. Some of the larger models feature fold out sections that provide more space when the vehicle is parked at the campsite.
The smaller models will usually offer a portable toilet, and sometimes an external shower that comes with an awning for privacy. There are usually extra plug-ins available as well so that you can bring your laptop along or charge your phone. This is a great way to explore the countryside without giving up all the modern conveniences of home.
Breakdown cover for the camper van is essential when you are out camping with your family. You don’t want to have your camper van breakdown and be stranded out in the middle of nowhere as this can put a real damper on your vacation. It is an essential part of ensuring that your valuable time is spent doing the things you want to do and not trying to find a garage in an area that you are unfamiliar with.
