Spring camping is a particularly magical time. There are amazing scenic views, fewer bugs, and fewer crowds, and give the best weather and fresh air for both daytime activities and nighttime sleep.
Van-camping is one of the camping styles suitable for family campers, and has many numerous benefits: it’s comfortable and so affordable that you can go more; it's more secure and convenient, you can drive and park anywhere you like (and be allowed).
Starting a van camping is not an easy thing. You need to prepare many things. In this post, we compiled the top 6 van-camping tips & tricks for spring camping in a van.
1. KEEP WARM
Generally speaking, during spring Mother Nature is kind, you will not face cold weather like winter. But, the weather can be fickle. So you need to pack proper supplies to ensure you are warm on the trip. We recommend taking some blankets or sleeping bags in your van. Or you can try to use a portable heater to keep you warm (remember to follow all safety best practices of course).
2. INVEST IN HIGH-QUALITY CAMPING FURNITURE
Camping tables and chairs are pieces of gear you should never skimp on. We all know the feeling of sitting on a comfortable chair and are far better than sitting on rough ground, not to mention eating delicious meals on a function table. We have no doubt that you’ll be a much happier van-camping experience with high-quality camping furniture.
3. TRY CAMPING
You can turn to tent camping when you park in security and beautiful campsites. You can set up a tent, go for a hike, gather firewood, cook dinner over an open fire, and have a good sleeping under the starry sky…all of these experiences can strengthen bonds between family members.
4. PACK COOKWARE AND TABLEWARE
Honestly, during all the surprising parts of camping, many people's favorite part is cooking. There is nothing quite like cooking and enjoy a delicious meal in the nature. So remember to pack cookware and tableware to ensure you can whip up delicious meals. Do remember to take along a camping cooler, which will help keep your food fresh for a long time.
5. TAKE ALONG A SHOWER TENT
Not all the campsites have shower and toilet (most dispersed camping areas do not), so it's an important thing to know how to get a shower or go to the bathroom while van camping. A portable toilet is one option. Our shower tent is multi-purpose, it can be used as changing room, camp restroom, shower tent, toilet tent, camping privacy tent.
6. BRING A HAMMOCK
For minimalist van camper, of course, you want to keep your trip easy and your gear simple. Even to keep comfy, you definitely don’t need to bring as much camping gear as you might think- just need to bring a Hammock. Our new mesh attached hammock is comfortable, anti-mosquito, and can be used as a tent you can sleep in the hammock all night long.
Enjoy your spring van-camping to the fullest!
