Packing the car for a week long camping trip….
Howzabout getting rid of the picnic hamper and subbing with a Ti Mug and Spork each 8)
Just two of us was getting stupid last time so I made the executive decision that camping meant simple life/back to basic so left the table and 2 chairs behind for a start!Posted 4 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
I’m obviously not alone with this issue then!
No bikes – that’s about to unleash a whole new can of worms when that happens. Towbar racks/roofbox/trailer will all need to be reconsidered.
We seem to have two crates of cooking utensils (how?) taking up a lot of space, actually less clothing than usual after my hissy fit packing last time, but self inflating mats take up loads more space than simple airbeds.
Why won’t she see that T5 is the answer to our problems?Posted 4 years agomuddydwarfSubscriber

Oddly enough me and mrsvader have been discussing this problem this evening… ours is more of a tour tho as we are spending 4 days at the beach in essex then going to Derbyshire for 4 days camping…. me, mrs, mini and dog…. we (she??) always always always overpack and I always say we need more space (avensis tourer) I wasnt allowed to look at anything bigger….Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
We just took the van to france for 3 weeks camping looked at folk packing cars and wondered how they managed …..
Our an was tetrised to the roof
– ok 2 mtbs and 2 roadies ate up alot of the space but makes me think how skilled some folk are to manage 2 kids plus bikes and campin kit for a holidayPosted 4 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
Mr pips that is horrific. Please get a trailer or roof box.
We’ve got a mondeo estate and its filed to the roof plus a big roof box for a weekend camping. Having said that we do take little one s full size travel cot and a stroller. We also have a very bulky khyam tent which is ace to put up but about the same size in the bag as when its erect!
I think a galaxy our similar may be on the cards next as a van is not work appropriate and as the boys get bigger I can sense a lot more camping and cycling trips will be on the cards.Posted 4 years ago
