3 Ways to Make A Camping Trip More Bearable

Saturday, 12 January 2019
Travel should be about relaxing and leaving all of the stresses of home behind, so why would anybody ever want to go camping? It all seems like a bit too much work. Why would you want to spend ages putting a tent up in the rain? You want to arrive at a luxurious hotel and put your feet up. When you go camping you’ve got the weather to consider. If it’s raining, you’re stuck in that little tent, miserable until it passes. But it’s not all doom and gloom, there are some great benefits to camping.

First off, it’s cheaper so if you’re travelling on a budget it’s ideal. It’s also good if you’re going on a road trip because you can get everything in the car easily. It gives you the chance to get closer to nature as well, but you’ve still got to find a way to make a bit more comfortable. Luckily, there is plenty of good camping gear out there that can make it a lot easier for you. Here’s how you can have a luxurious camping trip.


Get A Caravan
If you hate the idea of a tent, but you still want the freedom and price benefits of camping, you could get a caravan instead. You’ll still be able to drive wherever you like and stay out in nature, but you don’t have to deal with the hassle of putting a tent up or worrying about the rain dripping through. If you don’t know much about buying a caravan, you need to do a bit of research first to make sure you’re getting a decent one. Check out this list of questions to ask when buying a caravan to make sure that you’ve got all bases covered. Caravans can be fairly expensive, but if you plan on using it enough, it’ll pay for itself in the savings that you’ll make on hotels etc.

Glamping Sites
If you can just about get on board with the idea of sleeping in a tent, but you’re not too keen on the idea of putting it up, glamping sites are ideal. There are loads of them popping up all over the place right now. You’ll arrive to find a nice big luxury tent already put up for you, and there are good quality facilities on site. It’s a great way to get all of the benefits of camping without any of the drawbacks, but it is going to be more expensive.

Get The Right Gear
If you buy a cheap tent, it’s going to be small and cramped, and it’ll probably leak. But if you spend a bit more money on a better tent, you can get one that has standing room and isn’t going to leak. You can also get some great folding camp beds, so you don’t have to sleep on the floor and a solar-powered shower pack. If you get all of the right gear, camping doesn’t have to be as miserable as you think.

All of those horrible things that you picture when you think about camping can be avoided if you know how to do it right, so don’t give up on the idea straight away.

And until next time...
