Travelling by van has many benefits, but there are also disadvantages, including limited space, a lack of privacy, safety concerns, and maintenance. But don't let these disadvantages dissuade you from giving the van life a try.

What to Pack for a Van Trip

A journey in a van is different from a stay at a five-star hotel, so you should be ready and pack everything you'll need. Of course, this depends on how long the trip will be, but it's still necessary to make sure you don't forget anything crucial. We've mentioned some things you should take to have a wonderful trip:

Pack suitable clothing

You will have more flexibility with your suitable clothing during the trip, so pack comfortable clothing as well as warm clothing. If you plan to participate in any activities, make sure your clothing is appropriate for those activities. For instance, you can pack short pants for biking and pair them with a T-shirt.

Don't forget to take soft blankets, a comfy pillow, and other items for a restful night's sleep.

Don’t forget kitchen supplies

A camping grill, cooking utensils, pots and pans, plates, bowls, and glasses are necessary during your trip. Take enough food, vegetables, fruits, alcohol, and water with you. Use compostable plates whenever you want to dine out of your vehicle, as it's easier for you and enjoy the scenery you choose to stop at.

Take the navigation and entertainment elements

Take your phone and a map with you if you decide to visit a location you have never been to before since you should follow the GPS. And bring a book to read in a nice location with a view that is surrounded by green. Or, you may want to play a game like Uno or Monopoly.
