Motorhome Family Travel: 5 Quick Tips for Beginners

Kampafam share their top-tips for newcomers to motorhome travel with young children

1. Prepare Food & Snacks for Long Journeys

Children can get cranky when they’re hungry and have to endure long-distance driving, so it’s important when going on those longer trips to have snacks on hand to avoid those tantrums.

Keep a variety of snacks on hand for grouchy kids

2. Pack Games, Toys & Books for Rainy Days

Packing for your first motorhome trip can be daunting but forgetting toys for the kids is something you don’t want to forget. It can be easy to think those summer camping trips are all about being outdoors and running around, but rain can strike at any moment in the UK, so it’s always good to have a few activities to keep kids entertained.

Packing games is a great way to ensure a rainy day doesn’t ruin the fun

3. Pack for the Weather

If you’re planning to travel in hot weather, take some portable fans as campervans and motorhomes can get hot in these conditions. Likewise, if you’re travelling in cold weather, bring along plenty of blankets, and warm clothes, and don’t forget those raincoats.

Comfy children are happy children so pack for all-weather outcomes

4. Use Packing Cubes for Clothes

Packing cubes are small; lightweight bags used to organise and compress your clothing. They’re an ideal way to maximise space in your motorhome, and they can help keep your children’s clothes neat and wrinkle-free. Plus, packing cubes make it easy to find what you’re looking for when you arrive at your destination.

5. Create a Loose Routine

Routines can be important for motorhome travelling with children. You have to remember travelling on the road and sleeping in a tiny box on wheels can be an overwhelming but fun experience for kids; however, you don’t want overtired, cranky kids. We recommend planning meals and sleep times for the best motorhome travelling experience.

A loose routine can be helpful while on-the-road

If you’re thinking about embarking on your next adventure in a motorhome, we believe it’s a great idea – there’s nothing quite like hitting the open road with your family. But it’s worth doing your research first and ensuring you’re prepared!
