Levelling ramps – around £24

Whether you’re wild camping or using a purpose built site, chances are the ground you pitch on won’t be perfectly flat, so some levelling ramps are well worth keeping in your camper.

These Fiamma ramps have three steps and they’re easy to clean. They’re capable of supporting motorhomes or caravans of up to five tonnes, yet they’re light enough to be easily moved around and stored when not in use. Fiamma also sells a storage bag for the ramps, if needed.
