Tricks & Tips

So, you're ready for the new camping season. But wait; how has your awning faired in storage during the winter months?

It's not uncommon for some form of awning maintenance to be required before pitching for the new camping season. Obviously, there are different types of caravan awnings which require different approaches. 

Dogs love camping too

Packing the car for a family camping trip must be the most stressful part of your holiday. How many times have you arrived on site only to find you’ve left an essential piece of camp gear at home? We’ve all done it, and we’ve all felt that sinking feeling of frustration. Many seasoned campers have checklists to follow or pack items with military efficiency often in a predefined order to ensure nothing is forgotten. For occasional campers, careful planning can save the day.

But what about the dog – no, I’m not suggesting you’ve forgotten to pack the dog, but I bet that’s happened to someone somewhere. I’m thinking more about the equipment and camping essentials needed for your canine family members. You’ve packed all your own gear, sorted the kids’ stuff, double checked the USB charging cables and spent half an hour looking for the car keys! One last thing, have you got everything you need for an easy camping trip with the dog?
