Preparing for your trip

Prepare your suitcases

CampingCar-Online helps you to prepare your future trip in a motorhome or converted van by showing you the things not to forget. You will find tips on the type of luggage you should take, or a list of important documents to take.

Type of luggage

When travelling by motorhome in Italy, it is important to save as much space as possible.

In order not to be overwhelmed, and especially if you pick up and drop off your vehicle in two different cities, remember to bring soft bags or even backpacks, which can easily be stored in a corner of the motorhome.

If your city of departure and your city of arrival are the same, you can always leave your empty suitcases in a locker at the rental centre.

A day bag can be very handy for storing your valuables, or even for your excursions and visits.
