Motorhome Holiday packing tips

by Scottish Tourer January 10, 2018

When booking your motorhome holiday with Scottish Tourer Motorhome hire, you will find everything is included in the price apart from your bedding as you have the option to hire or bring your own. We advise all our customers to pack lightly and as if they were staying in a hotel because everything is in the Motorhome from a first aid kit to washing up liquid.

Before you pack for your Motorhome Holiday

Check you have all the documents you need as forgetting something may mean you can't drive off with the Motorhome. Avoid taking hard bodied suitcases the soft bodied or collapsible ones will store away easier. Please ask if you can leave them at the depot, space is limited in the Motorhome. Plan to pack straight into the Motorhome this will save the need to find storage for your bulky suitcase and leave the suitcase in the boot of your car. Check what is included in the Motorhome itinerary so you pack only what you need - remember you have to unpack everything again. Consider what bedding you require and  if you need to make your bed up at night. Be aware sleeping bags will save a lot of space in this instance as duvets are bulky to store.

Things to Consider for your motorhome holiday

Although you will probably find the Motorhome fully equipped with crockery, pots and pans etc. You will probably need to bring washing up liquid and tea towels. Things such as tin foil and sandwich bags are also useful for storing things away. Consider what extras might come in useful like a bbq or picnic table. Also consider chairs for eating outside or bicycle hire for getting around. Scotland is known for its unpredictable weather so don't forget your waterproofs. Also remember your sun-cream, a bottle of midget repellent might be worth investment to.

A torch can come in handy for walking about at night or just visiting the toilet before bed. When buying groceries remember space is limited and the motorhome does not have a large family sized fridge. Best to think about what your buying and try and remember every village and town usually has a grocery store or butcher where you can buy the essentials.
