Written by mighway

New Zealand summer road trips can be an exciting adventure no matter where you go. In order to have a fun experience rent a campervan and make sure that you have all of the essentials. Keep reading for some essentials to bring on your summer road trip.

Tools and Emergency Items

Think safety first by bringing along emergency items such as jumper cables, battery charger, road flares, fire extinguisher, roof repair tape, shovel and a flashlight. You’ll also want to make sure that you have a GPS system just in case you lose your way. A WiFi signal booster may be helpful as well. Other things that may come in handy are scissors, gloves, WD-40, extension cords and a weather radio.

Household Items

Some campervans do not come fully stocked with necessary linens such as towels, sheets and blankets. It’s smart to check with the motorhome owner before you leave. For the kitchen, make sure to pack food so that you can eat on the road without having to stop constantly. Bring storage containers and plastic bags for leftover food. You may even want to bring a few other things in case the rental doesn’t have it. You motorhome listing should specify what is included, otherwise just double check.

Outdoor Items

While on the road, you’ll most likely spend plenty of time in the great outdoors. You’ll want to be prepared for activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, surfing, or boating. Make sure that you bring the proper attire for these activities as well as the necessary equipment (like bicycles!). You’ll also want to bring folding chairs or even a hammock to relax outside. Consider also packing a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and grilling items to enjoy a barbecue.
