What you need… and what’s already included!

I pack my suitcase and take with me… Any child can do that! But in reality, packing for the holiday often is a challenge – Especially when you are on the road with a camper! The most important Bulli rule is: Less is more and what is not necessary to bring stays home! This is the only way to pack your campervan properly.

Packing your camping bus properly – Nothing for beginners!

Anyone who has ever been on the road with a VW bus knows that nothing is more annoying than having too much luggage with you! You only clear from back to front and from front to back. Using the Bulli as a single cupboard? This will turn into a real horror, because where to put the hat box or the make-up case?

roadsurfer tip: Only pack the essentials! You travel Europe, not the Amazon. You can buy everything you need on the way, too.

If you pack for a trip with our Bullis, you can leave some things at home right away. We summarized what you need to bring, so you can go completely relaxed into the holiday preparation: But now have fun packing!

Fully packed with great things that make life easier – the roadsurfer campervan has it all:

Pockets out and start packing – What you still could need

And here we come to the hardly less important packing rule no. 2: Leave your suitcases at home! You travel best with a bag or with boxes like the pros. Why? You have better access to your bag in the trunk and you don’t have to carry your suitcase out to open it – it’s that simple.

Of course, you won’t have to heed all our suggestions for your holiday – They may be helpful for the one but not for the other. Let yourself inspire!

But there are some things you should have with you, no matter on which trip: Your first-aid kit and the annoying papers!
