Caravanning provides unlimited travel opportunities, but packing a campervan for the first time can be challenging. Familiarize yourself with the basic list of things to take and enjoy a peaceful vacation.

Packing your RV should be tailored to the purpose of your trip as well as the location of your planned stop. It is a good idea to find out in advance the conditions offered by the campground where you plan to spend the night and any applicable rates. Usually, campgrounds and tents have bathrooms available, so bringing along a hiking shower, for example, may not be necessary. If you are planning to travel through Europe, make sure that your equipment includes foreign currency and plug adapters. If you’re going to be staying somewhere “wild,” check the regulations first so you don’t risk getting a ticket. The list of things to bring also depends on the equipment of the camper’s body. Modern models may have a small built-in bathroom and a fitted kitchen area

The list of things you should take with you when you go camping includes

  • documents,
  • driver’s license,
  • iD card or passport,
  • registration certificate,
  • camper insurance policy,
  • travel insurance,
  • eHIC card (in case of traveling abroad),
  • money (especially small change to pay for the bathroom),
  • payment card,
  • medicines taken


When going on vacation in an RV, it is a good idea to be prepared for various eventualities. It’s a good idea to take starter cables with you in case the camper won’t start after a long stop. The basic equipment should include: a fire extinguisher, a spare wheel and a well-equipped first-aid kit. You should also have a reflective vest on hand. A few-meter extension cord can come in handy if you have to park your RV far from a power source. It is also worth to include in the list a basic set of tools, in case of various failures

A rechargeable or battery operated flashlight will come in handy for the trip. Don’t forget phone and camera chargers, as well as powerbanks – solar-charged models are great for summer travel. If you don’t have a built-in kitchen in your RV, you can bring along a travel gas bottle to which you can attach a cooking burner or a travel stove. You can find a wide selection of travel and camping accessories at speckable.pl – Electrical store offers a wide range of travel adapters and extension cords, among other things

Other useful RV equipment includes:

  • a folding table and chairs for spending time outside the camper,
  • kettle,
  • tourist fridge,
  • tourist shower, where water heats up in the sun,
  • bucket and detergent (if you intend to wash clothes by hand),
  • dryer and ropes to hang your laundry,
  • mosquito and tick spray,
  • a tick remover,
  • window shades,
  • hiking hammock,
  • bicycle rack,
  • portable grill,
  • disposable (preferably paper or bamboo) plates, plates, cups, cutlery,
  • bedding/blankets/sleeping bags,
  • quick-dry towels,
  • wellingtons, raincoats,
  • clothes and underwear that can be dried in the dryer,
  • bag for dirty laundry,
  • paper towels,
  • disposable gloves for cleaning the chemical toilet,
  • cleaning products and antibacterial fluid,
  • sunscreen and after-sun creams,
  • gadgets to make the time more enjoyable for the little ones, such as beach volleyball, badminton set, board and card games.
