Camper Trailer packing Tips – What to pack or prepare

A camping trip with a trailer allows you to bring some of the homely comforts to your camping destination. The quote, ‘Home away from home,’ seems very true in this aspect. But, simply put, you need to prioritize your camping pack with essentials for safe and comfortable travel. Strategic item placements and knowing what to pack will help you a long way.

Below are some great tips that can help you pack the essentials with room for some camping souvenirs.

  1. Getting organized is the first line of ensuring a great camping trip. You need to separate things that you constantly need and make it the most easily accessible. Always remember that the less stuff you pull out of your trailer, the less gear needs to go back in. Distribute the camping items to groups, like kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, camp stuff, etc.
  2. Review the basic necessities. Write down a list of things that your entire trip depends on, such as a cooking grate, extension cords or generators if there is no power backup and lighting. Next, keep the sanitation materials, like soap, toiletries, etc., ready. Lastly, make a checklist of clothing, utensils, cooking supplies, etc.
  3. Place stuff that you will need while camping outside the trailer in a different area. Things like firewood, torch, cords, etc. come under this category.
  4. Pack all the heavy items on the floor first and evenly around the camper trailer. This will help distribute the overall weight for easy towing. If you pack your heavier items on the top, you may run into a risk of those items falling from shelves or cabinets above.
  5. You can use plastic bags and rubber bands to keep things together and safe. For example, you can use a rubber band to keep all your spoons and forks together.

Overall, give yourself some extra time to pack your belongings.
