The camper is perfect for exploring Europe. Currently, the network of motorways and expressways is so rich that we can easily travel even long distances. The only problem remains the camper and its equipment.

Traveling in a camper gives you independence. If the weather in one place deteriorates, we can often move to a place with better conditions. In addition to this camper, we can go to the campsite, to the city, to the spa center, to the restaurant - we go wherever we want.

Not too warm, not too cold

The first question that arises during longer trips is whether we can stay in the camper for so long. There is often a question about temperatures - in summer it may be too warm, and in autumn, winter and early spring - too cold.

Therefore, it is very important to choose a camper that is adapted to weather conditions - one in which we will not be bothered by cold, humidity or heat. If we are traveling in the colder months, the car should be equipped with heating, a boiler, double glazing and thermal insulation (including insulated water and sewage tanks). In summer - we should ensure good ventilation, open windows (including roof windows), and preferably also air conditioning.

Another very important piece of equipment is... a refrigerator . It's good if there is a kitchen in the camper, but in practice not everyone wants to spend their vacation cooking. However, everyone uses a refrigerator, even for storing the most important food products.

Ventilated wardrobes with warm air blowing are also useful. In winter, they will allow you to dry wet clothes, and in summer, they will provide your clothes with adequate ventilation.

During sunny weather, various types of awnings, blinds, mosquito nets and vestibules are very useful. Thanks to them, we can relax outside, enjoy the sun, but at the same time avoid sunburn. They can also protect against the wind. And since we go outside, light furniture will also come in handy - folding armchairs and a table.

A valuable item may be a windshield mat - it will protect the camper against excessive cooling in winter. It can also be useful in hot weather, limiting excess sun, although in summer a thin mosquito net will work better.

What is worth remembering before continuing your journey is a supply of chemicals necessary to dispose of waste in the on-board sanitary installation. It is also good to have water and electricity connections, which will be useful when camping.

Another advantage will be the spacious trunk at the back of the car, thanks to which there will be plenty of space, for example, for sports equipment.

A very important element of every trip is appropriate camper insurance, which can be purchased at CampRest Ubezpieczenia .

Which camper should you choose?

We can rent a camper if we do not have our own, e.g. in one of the camper rental companies that can be found in the CampRest camping vehicle search engine.

What else?

When we know what equipment we need and the selected rental model has it all on board, all we need to do is ensure good company. Let's remember to travel either with family or with friends - with people we already know well. Thanks to this, we will almost be sure that in addition to a great camper, we will also take with us a great atmosphere on our trip. This, however, is impossible without a well-selected camper crew.
