  • Waste and fresh water containers can be sat on the floor in the toilet.

  • Gas cylinders, mains cables and levellers are stored in the Gas locker at the front of the caravan.

  • Heavyweight items, awning & poles etc. should be packed on the floor over the axle area. Make sure they are secure.

  • Medium weight items, plastic patio furniture, bikes etc, should be packed either just in front or behind the heavier items. Again making sure that they are secure.

  • Store crockery in special racks in the overhead kitchen lockers.

  • If you are taking food try to use packets rather than tins as these take up less room and weigh less.

  • Store all bed linen in the bed lockers under the seats.
