A VW camper van may seem spacious, giving you the illusion that you will have lots of storage space. You may end up, however, packing your whole wardrobe only to find out that you have space for just a suitcase. If you plan on spending your time on the road, keep in mind that a minimalist lifestyle is the best option to adopt. Pack only essential items such as jeans, a jumper and a handful of t-shirts. Other items such as sunscreen, a first aid kit and a game for a rainy day are also crucial when out on your trip.

Having loose items in your van

Driving around with loose items clashing against each other is not an ideal way to start your Scotland trip. Lock away all your utensils and make sure that there are no items left lying on your beds or tables. Having these items secured not only makes your VW camper van hire Scotland trip enjoyable, but it also guarantees your safety while travelling.

Such information ensures that you can safely pass under bridges without getting stuck. It also allows you to park your camper van without encroaching on too much space.
