7 Essential Things You’ll need for your Camper Holiday

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

We’ve all been there; on the way to the airport, listing the things we remembered. And then next moment you’ve landed in a foreign country and you’ve forgotten your favourite pair of shorts. We've put together a list of the absolute essentials you're going to need for your camper.

Aux Cord

Sure you could listen to the hits on one of the radio stations, but then you have to deal with ads, and no skips. So plug in that aux cord and control your tunes to suit your mood as you cruise the open roads of New Zealand. And if you did forget it, don't stress, most gas stations in New Zealand stock them.

Charger cable

There’s no point in having that Aux cord if your phone dies an hour into your trip, so don’t forget your adapter so you can keep your phone juiced, and connected to the world.


The best way to unwind and relax after a long day on the road is by putting your feet up and getting lost in a few chapters. Perfect for a chill evening or a rainy morning.


The most versatile accessory. The sun’s going to be constant and no one likes a squinting selfie. But better than that, if you need a midday nap, pull that hood up and slide on your sunnys and you’re good to nap even in the glaring sun.


The last thing you want is to go for a stroll outside the camper at night and get lost in the dark. Whether you’re on the way to stargaze or just heading to the beach to listen to the waves. Don’t get lost, take a flashlight.

A Pack of Cards

On a rainy day if you’re stuck in the camper you’re going to need some entertainment. If it’s a long trip Monopoly won’t be an option. You want your relationships to last the day. So take a pack of cards, and have some games of snap, blackjack, or cheat. Spice things up with some poker. Meditate during a game of solitaire. Cards are a camper’s best friend.


Seems like an easy one to remember, but I can’t count the times I’ve seen bright red sunburned bodies leaving the beach after a hot day. The sun burns quickly here in New Zealand, so make sure you keep sunscreen on you at all times!

So check, then double check, and triple check.
