Do ensure that you get organised before you leave.

The first rule of caravaning is that you need to be super organised before you start off on your journey. Why? Well, it’s because you are essentially taking everything that you need with you, and that means cleaning down, stocking up, and securing everything thoroughly before you even get on the road.

In fact, securing items within your caravan is especially vital because anything of a significant weight that can move around inside while you are on the road can unbalance your vehicle, and make it a tipping hazard.

Sadly, tipping, especially at high speed is often linked to caravans setting on fire, and as they are built from such lightweight materials and burn so quick most don’t survive this sort of incident. This being why it’s worth putting in a bit of extra organisation work before you set off.

Don’t forget that you will be towing your home.

Next, to excel at the art of caravaning don’t forget that you will be towing your accommodation for the duration of your holiday behind you. This means that you have to check that the weight of your van matches what your vehicle can tow.

It’s also a good idea to beef up your car’s pilling power with products like RidePro 4X4 Suspension Kits which can make it much easier to tow your van. After all, half the challenge is arriving safely, and if you have mastered that you are much more likely to have a successful trip.

Do consider the climate and adjust accordingly.

The thing about camping, and in particular caravaning in Australia is that the climate isn’t consistent across all of the country. What this means is that a van that may be perfect for places like Tasmania isn’t going to be right for a trip to the surrounding areas of Darwin.

With that in mind, you may find it worthwhile to add additional insulation to your van before you set off for cooler locations, or alternatively use electric blankets to ensure you stay as toasty as possible during the night.

Conversely, in warmer areas cooking outside, keeping the blinds down, and even investing in air conditioning may be the best recourse for a successful trip.

Don’t forget to research sites before you leave.

Finally, if you truly want to master the art of caravaning in Australia, you need to research where you will be staying before you leave. This is because not all campsites are equipped for caravan hookups, and this can leave you in a pickle if you plan your trip around sites that are unsuitable.

Luckily you can visit websites like for more details of the facilities you can expect on Australian campsites. Something that will ensure your next trip is indeed a masterpiece.
