  1. Ensuring your caravan is properly maintained is important ahead of any long road trip. Make sure that your vehicle is in full-working order before setting off by ensuring that your caravan window seals are in good condition, and that there are no leaks. Ensure that your tyres are in working order, and regularly inspect the caravan regularly.
  2. Make sure that your caravan is summer-ready. In the UK, summer temperatures can fluctuate regularly from high to low. Invest in a high quality fan, and make sure that there are blankets on-board for the colder nights.
  3. Fill up your tank with fuel before you set-off to prevent delays on-route. Make sure to pack a map, a sat-nav and phone chargers to ensure that you do not get lost on route.
  4. Pack games, entertainment, snacks and toys for any youn children who may find a long journey challenging.
