Ultimate Campervan & Motorhome Packing List

July 22, 2022

Your favourite time of the year is here! The time to hire a campervan and head out for vacation. Knowing what to pack on a camping adventure can be overwhelming for beginners or seasoned campervan enthusiasts. You don’t want to get to the camping destination and realise you’ve forgotten essentials.

It’s possible to go out for adventure with everything you need, especially if you have enough storage space on your campervan. Here’s our campervan or motorhome packing list to help tick essentials off before you leave home.


While you can purchase most campervan holiday essentials on your way, you won’t go far without critical documents. Life on the road may get unbearable if you forget your:

  • Driver’s licence
  • Passport
  • Insurance documents
  • Motorhome documents
  • Campground reservation documents

It’s also a great idea to carry a list of important phone numbers- they can be handy in an emergency.


Whenever you embark on a motorhome trip, you need to take care of your health by being cautious of what you eat. One of the main perks of motorhome trips is the ability to cook your food. This can save you time and money and ensure you eat delicious and healthy meals. Remember to include water, nuts and dried fruits, as they will keep you energised throughout the trip.

Necessary Clothing

The clothes you include in your motorhome packing will depend on the season you want to travel. For example, you might need gloves, coats, boots, sweaters and raincoats if you’re planning to travel during the cold season.

Personal Care Items

Although you want to explore Mother Nature’s beauty during your wild camping trip, you shouldn’t give room for poor hygiene. Carry personal care items that will leave you feeling clean and good about yourself. Some of the items to carry include:

  • Deodorant
  • Soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Suncream
  • Shower gel
  • Painkillers


Apart from the adventure of being out there in the wild, you need more fun and games to create lifelong memories. Sometimes, you may not feel like leaving your campervan and may need something more fun to do. Depending on your preferences, here are items to consider:

  • Board games
  • Bikes
  • Hula hoop
  • Game console
  • Kites
  • Baseball/ football/volleyball
  • Playing cards

Campsite Essentials

A motorhome or campervan trip isn’t just about staying in your big rig throughout. It is also a great opportunity to spend time on campsites. Some camping grounds offer campsite essentials while others don’t. However, these items will always make your wild camping worthwhile:

  • Barbeque
  • Camping table
  • Camping chair
  • Hammock
  • Lamp
  • Flashlight
  • Laundry basket
  • Pocket knife
  • Aid Kit
