What you need in such a caravan is quite individual. Because a caravan holiday doesn’t mean you’ll be hanging out, or sitting on chairs in front of the caravan, or setting up a tent. We all have different habits and that’s fine. You just have to figure out what your crew needs.
This section is more for women and guys who like to cook. If you plan on minimal meals in the caravan then some plates, cutlery, cups or bowls for breakfast cereal will suffice. You will have a fridge in your rented caravan so you can have any food you buy. If you like a good coffee, a cotto or caffettiera in Italian will definitely come in handy. Coffee prepared this way tastes great. A milk frother makes the froth and you can enjoy the cappuccino overlooking the mountains in a deserted place.
If you plan to cook some lunch or dinner as well, usually 2 pots, 1 pan, cutting board, knife, ladle, ladle are enough. Maybe some sort of salad bowl. The kitchen equipment in the caravan rentals varies. If you’re after a kitchen, ask the renter directly for details. In addition, you need some dish cleaners, a sponge or a rag. You may also need some foldable containers for washed dishes or dish towels.

Camping furniture and accessories
The following amenities should be standard in every rented caravan:
- table and chairs
- an extension cable and a special cable for connecting the caravan to 230V
- water hose
- levelling chocks
A barbecue is certainly handy, but this can be at extra cost.
Should be included, but check with your caravan rental company to be sure. In summer, a tarp will suffice, especially somewhere in southern Europe. However, nobody guarantees today’s weather anymore. You might decide to check out the mountains and there the nights might be a bit cooler.
