Important tips for successful winter camping

When winter camping, some important tips should be observed: Before going on a camping adventure, it is important that the camping vehicle is winter-proof and suitable for winter, i.e. it must have heating on board and be well insulated. The right equipment plays a major role in winter camping. You will need i.e. outdoor clothing and also warm equipment for the interior of the caravan such as cuddly blankets, hot water bottles and heated seat cushions. Of course, you will also need all kinds of other things such as tools for any repair work and brooms for clearing snow. There are also a few things to consider when it comes to powering your caravan, as the on-board batteries cannot perform as well in cold weather as they can in warm conditions. Therefore, it makes sense to connect the vehicle to shore power in winter at a campsite, as this ensures a continuous power supply. Another big problem with winter camping is water. That’s why you need heated water tanks for your fresh water so that it doesn’t freeze.
