If you’re counting down the days until your next camping adventure, we’ve got some advice on preparing your hybrid caravan for a trip.
At Jawa Offroad Camper Trailers our vehicles, including hybrid caravans, have a reputation for functionality, longevity and great value for money.
But, despite our quality products, sometimes you can’t predict the unexpected. However, you can be prepared for many situations, because nobody likes getting stranded without the essentials, or with a flat battery.
What to Check Before You Go
If you’re planning your next camping adventure, the most important thing is to be prepared. We’ve compiled a list of essential things to check before you hit the road:
- Make sure your gas bottle/s are full.
- Charge all the batteries
- Check the condition of your tyres and the pressure.
- Fill all the water containers.
- Check that the fridge is functioning properly so your food can be stored and kept fresh.
- Watch weather reports so you are aware of what weather is approaching.
Essential Items to Pack for Your Adventure
Personal items are important to pack to ensure your comfort while you’re not at home but there are several other essentials you need before your camping holiday. As they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
So, here are also some essential items we wouldn’t leave behind.
- Torch (and extra bulbs)
- First-aid kit
- Fire safety equipment
- Zip ties and spare rags
- Air compressor
- Hat and sunscreen
- Additional water
How Often Should Your Hybrid Caravan be Serviced?
One of the joys of having your own hybrid caravan is that you can pack up and go with very little notice. But you won’t get far if your camper isn’t service regularly.
If you tend to do a lot of off-roading, we suggest that a service is scheduled every 12 months. But if you’re just going on a couple of small trips a year, then you could easily get away with a service every two years.
Unlike cars, campers can sit in the same spot for many months. However, if you have driven through water or dust has crept in, and the van sits parked in a driveway for a long period of time, rust will build up. The water can also remove the grease from the wheel bearings which is why regular servicing is required.
