If you have been following along you would have seen we purchased a little Jayco Expanda Outback at the start of this year. We are ready to start exploring more as a family of 4 and are excited to share our adventures with you 🙂
To make the packing up/packing down a little less stressful we have created a template of a generic Caravan/Camping Checklist, with a few specifics items we’ve added from our experience.
We’ve made it available in Excel so you can change it and add/remove items depending on your family and style of camping, such as:
– Where you go; you won’t need a generator, portable shower or toilet if you stay at caravan parks
– What type of camping you do; caravan, camper trailer, tent, swag etc
– It also depends if you have kids, number of kids and the age of your kids. (this list looks a lot different when we used to camp as a young kid free couple
We also colour code it so we know who is in charge of packing that item (Blue for Dad & Pink for Mum) so we don’t forget it!
The actual list we use is split into 2 parts:
Part 1 are items that stay in the caravan and we have the items listed under their location (i.e. top drawer under sink etc) – this obviously depends on the size and layout of your caravan.
Part 2 the items that we need to pack into the caravan and the ute.
We also have a similar list for any trips we do to a holiday house Airbnb etc
We find this list makes is a bit quicker and easier. Hope this helps as makes it all a little easier to get you out there more!
