Campervans are the perfect choice when it comes to family adventures, especially if you’re a fan of road trips! There are so many amazing things you can do and places you can visit in a campervan, and the great thing is that you always have a warm, welcoming place to retire after each day. The beauty of having your own campervan is that you can create a space that works for you and your family, including important features that will help to make your travels that little bit better. Just like anything, however, campervans do need to be child-proofed to ensure they are safe and family friendly. Here are a few useful tips on how to make your campervan the perfect place for you and your family to enjoy.
This is the most important thing to consider when it comes to travelling with your little ones, as you need to be able to rest assured that your campervan is safe and secure. As a campervan is a vehicle, it is obvious that there are additional safety features to include to be on the safe side, such as child locks on the doors and windows. You can also look at adding some secure steps to help get in and out of the campervan, along with adding some slow-closing hinges to the doors and windows, to ensure no little fingers will be caught in slamming doors. Another great thing to introduce is safety catches to the cupboard doors, as not only will this help to keep the cupboards closed and secure, it will also prevent nosey little monkeys from looking in the cupboards and helping themselves to treats or potentially dangerous items such as kitchen appliances. There are lots of different features you can include with your campervan conversion kit, to ensure your campervan is safe and your little ones can’t come to any harm.
Warm and Welcoming
When you’re staying in one place for a long period of time, you want to feel welcome and at home. Your campervan is like your second home when you set off on your travels, so it’s important to make sure it’s warm and welcoming for you and your family. Start by introducing plenty of homely touches such as family photographs and home comforts, especially for your children such as their favourite teddy bears and comfort blankets. You could also introduce some soft lighting to make the space feel cosy and relaxing.
One of the most important things to remember when travelling with children is to include some fun and games. Children get bored very easily and it’s important to keep them occupied and happy to ensure they have a fun trip too. Remember to pack some fun games into the campervan that you can all play and enjoy, especially if the weather isn’t too good. You could also look at bringing some portable DVD players, an iPad or even putting a small TV in the campervan to give you the option of watching a DVD or some programmes. This is perfect for helping your little one’s wind down and have some time out, but it’s also really nice for you to enjoy on an evening when the little ones are in bed! You could also look at including some outdoor toys that can be used when you find some open fields or when you’ve pitched up for the day.
