Camper Trailer QLD Tips & Tricks
Whether you want to go camping with the family at Karingal Scout Campsite, Main Beach Camping Grounds, or someplace else, things will go a whole lot better if you do it in a camper trailer QLD. But before you can make an informed decision, there are certain things you need to know. Here’s a look at how to get the right trailer and what to do once you have one of your very own.
Make Sure the Camper Trailer Can be Safely Towed by Your Vehicle
The worst thing to do is to buy a camper trailer that is too big or too heavy for you to tow safely with your vehicle. Make sure you know how much your vehicle is capable of towing and then find a suitable trailer. When considering the camper trailer weight, don’t forget to factor into the equation the cargo, fuel, and water you will carry in your trailer. That’s the only way you can arrive at an accurate tally.
Practice Makes Perfect
Before you hit the open road in your camper trailer, you need to familiarize yourself with it. You don’t want to come across any difficulties on an actual trip that could have been sorted out had you spent some time getting familiar with your camper trailer. Here are some things to be mindful of:
- Practice hooking up the camper trailer to your vehicle.
- Spend time learning about the features of your camper trailer. You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the layout, the compartments, the appliances, the water system, and more.
- Take some test drives so that you get accustomed to towing the camper trailer. Focus on driving, changing lanes, entering and exiting highways, parking, and backing up.
Make a List of What You’ll Take
It also makes sense to make a list of everything you and your family will need. While it’s better to overpack than to under pack, you still don’t want to go overboard. If you pack too many things, the weight of your camper trailer might exceed the amount your vehicle can tow safely. Your list should include the following headings:
- Power source–propane, gas, or diesel
- Bedding–sheets, comforters, sleeping bags, and pillows
- Toiletries–toilet paper, washcloths, towels, soap, and hand sanitizer
- Cleaning–dishwashing liquid and sponges
- Cookware–pots and pans
- Kitchenware–plates, cutlery, salad bowl, paper towels, and napkins
- Clothing–clothes and footwear
- Other Stuff–first aid kit, medications, and bug spray
