Whether you've never camped in a VW Camper before, or only have camping memories from early childhood with your family, how do you know that camping is right for you?
If it's your first time, going camping can be a little bit daunting. But once you've tried you're almost certain to be hooked! How can you make your first camping experience as smooth and easy as possible?
- Stay close to home
When you're camping in a VW Camper Van for the first time, staying close to home can provide the reassurance you need to really enjoy your holiday.
- Go for one or two nights
If it's your first time, book a camper for three nights rather than a week-long break. This will give you a taste of the camping life, in a small dose to get you used to it. Once you've been once, you'll want to extend your next visit for a longer camping holiday.
- Hire a VW camper van
A VW Camper Van hire gives you a comfortable experience for your short break, without a big investment. Don't buy your own van until you're sure that you want to go regularly. By hiring a VW Camper Van from Kelpie Campers, you can enjoy home comforts in a brand new location without financial risk. If you decide you love the camper van life, you can buy your own camper in the future.
- Plan rainy day activities
VW camping is always an enjoyable experience. But, if it's your first time, your spirits might be dampened by extended periods of rain. Whoever you travel with, make sure that you have some indoor plans in case the weather's not your friend. When you're hiring a camper van for the first time, you'll feel better with somewhere other than the van to spend the whole day. And, you'll learn to appreciate sitting in your camper van listening to the rain and enjoying your favourite hot drink!
- Savour every minute
Your first VW camping experience will almost certainly be the start of a new passion. From the wonderful camping community to sunrises in brand new locations, there are so many things to love about camping holidays and short breaks.
Hire a VW camper van to get started on your adventure, and see why camping continues to increase in popularity.
