What to Pack


What should you bring for your Kiwi campervan holiday?

Let us take away the hassle out of deciding what to pack, particularly if you are heading off on your first campervan holiday. You will find that many everyday essentials are supplied in your Britz camper, so that for starters makes things a lot easier:

Apartment styled kitchen equipment - all you have to do is check out our menu suggestions for inspiration, stock your fridge and choose the view you want to create your culinary delights next to. Your Britz campervan will come with china plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, wine glasses, drinking glasses, coffee plunger, bottle/can opener, mixing bowls, colander, saucepans, frying pans, chopping board, electric jug, gas kettle, tea towel, toaster.

Freshly laundered linen & bedding for the best night’s sleep including pillows, pillowcases, duvets, sheets, towels.

Other useful items to make your holiday easy – pegs, clothes hangers, dustpan & brush, biodegradable toilet chemicals, fire extinguisher, dishwashing detergent, bucket & hose, disposable gloves, broom, matches, toilet roll and bin liner.

So what to pack? We’ve put together the below checklist as a general guide. But remember, there’s no need to panic if you have forgotten anything as our branches are located close to supermarkets, lifestyle and hardware stores. Don't forget to check out what other travellers may have shared on their drop off at local branches. Often you'll find essentials free to a good home while picking up your motorhome.

We recommend packing your gear in soft luggage bags as they are a lot easier to store in your campervan than a hard suitcase.

General things to bring:

Travel insurance - always worth buying even if travelling domestically - leave one copy of your policy at home and take one copy with you
Driver's Licence
Day pack
Waterbottle - embrace a reusable bottle, we discourage single use plastics!
Warm Sweatshirt
Snacks - the most important thing for all roadtrips!
Camera, film, extra batteries, spare memory stick - or just enough space on your smart phone to store your great shots
Excellent playlist
Sunscreen - nothing ruins a holiday like sunburn

Medical Suggestions: (Note, all campers come with a First Aid Kit).
Contact lens/eyeglasses prescriptions - if you have a spare pair of eyeglasses, bring them with you
Prescriptions for any medications you may need - always carry medicines in correctly labelled containers
