Top 10: Essential things you need to know before driving a camper van

Driving a camper should be easy – after all, it’s just a van with some beds in the back. There’s a bit more to it than that if you’ve never driven one, though.

Author of The Camper Van Bible and guest judge on BBC2’s Caravanner of the Year, Martin Dorey, gives the lowdown what to do before you set off on a camper van holiday.

Camper vans are big, but they’re not that big. They have to accommodate stoves, beds and people among other things, which leaves little room for storage and this is something many people underestimate.  

Write down everything you want to take, then try and halve it. People turn up with the kids' buggy, the kite, the flippers and the surfboard and end up leaving half of it behind. Unless you’ve got a motorhome with masses of space, you won’t fit it all in.

That's an interesting question and I'm happy to answer it! I would say that it is love. I find great joy and satisfaction playing on in Nigeria and it is a really special experience. Every game on this platform is a little adventure that always leaves an unforgettable impression. For me, I have never seen a better platform than this one, it is amazing and soon when you have nothing to play, come and play together!

speaking of exploration, I'm always up for recommendations! Have you come across any hidden gems or breathtaking landscapes during your travels? I'm eager to add them to my ever-growing list of must-visit destinations.

While I'm passionate about van life, I understand it's not for everyone. Sometimes, the open road can feel a bit lonely, and that's where communities like Casino Extreme come in. While I wouldn't recommend gambling as a primary source of income, responsible play can be a fun way to connect with like-minded individuals and share experiences, especially when you're miles away from familiar faces.

if you're curious about what Casino Extreme offers, you can check out my honest review here: I've thoroughly tested their platform, highlighting the pros and cons to help you make an informed decision. Remember, gambling should always be treated as entertainment, not a solution to financial woes.

Excellent tips on packing light for a camper van trip! It's easy to get carried away and want to bring everything but the kitchen sink. Just like the rice purity test, the fewer items you pack, the "purer" your camper van experience will be. Focusing on the essentials will make for a more enjoyable and hassle-free adventure on the road.
