A Toddler Camping Bed – How to Travel Light

Do you find planning a camping trip stressful?

Trying to remember everything you need to pack and at the same time finding the space to store it isn’t easy. I know I have been on many camping trips and each time the first thing I pack is my toddler camping bed. Of course, I do pack other important things too. But next to the tent this is the most important item of all the camping equipment, to me.

You see it’s all about convenience for me. Why? Because I don’t want to spend my holiday fighting with camping equipment. I want to enjoy the time with my kids. After all, you can’t get the precious early years back can you?

Camping equipment has come a long way in recent years – thank goodness! Tents can now “Pop-up” it has to be said this is one of the best advances in camping equipment. It’s fantastic for all us folk who don’t want to spend hours trying to find out which pole goes where!

Even better the toddler camping bed inflates and deflates in seconds. Perfect… no more foot pumps to inflate beds and even worse trying to deflate it when it’s time to go home.

So when I get to the camp site I want to see the tent up in minutes and the inflatable beds up even quicker. Everything else falls into place after that.

After all, the sleeping arrangements are the most important of all aren’t they?

Making sure you’re sleeping area is wind proof, air tight, waterproof and of course comfortable is of the highest priority for any parent. Staying dry and cosy in the tent can’t be beat – believe me I’ve had the opposite experience in the past and it’s not a lot of fun.

The main priority for me is that my kids have a great time and they get to experience the great outdoors. But I do like to make sure we have the best home comforts when we go back to our camp site. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking this – all parents want to create great memories for their kids. And, of course, make life a bit easier for themselves too.

To ensure you have the best trip it’s essential to plan ahead. Don’t leave anything to chance – start thinking about what you need weeks in advance. This way you will greatly reduce the chances of having a “camping disaster.”

Packing For RV Camping

If you are heading off on a camping expedition in your RV, you are probably wondering what you should pack. RV camping supplies vary greatly from traditional camping supplies, and you do not want to pack too much or pack too little and forget something important. Here are some ideas to help you choose what RV camping supplies you will need for your trip.

Packing For An RV Camp Ground

If you are going to be camping at an RV campground, your RV camping supplies will be different than if you were trekking into the wilderness with your RV. You will need to stock your shelves with food, first of all. Make sure to pick food that is quick and easy to make, unless you love to cook and want to spend a good deal of time in your RV cooking. The best food to take to the RV campground is typical camping food. Even though you are in an RV, you still want to enjoy traditional camping activities like roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over a campfire. So make sure that you pack those traditional camping foods in your RV camping supplies.

In addition, you will want to include simple amenities like toilet paper, towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, and other items of the like. Since you are camping in an RV, you will have plenty of chances to take showers and baths, so make sure that you pack enough supplies to stock the bathroom. You will also want to include eating utensils and flatware. You can always pack paper plates and plastic silverware to cut back on time spent cleaning up while RV camping.

Packing For A Wilderness Get Away

If you are going into the wilderness with your RV, or even if you are just going somewhere that is not an RV park, your RV camping supplies will be much more intense. You will want to include large amounts of bug spray, sun tan lotion, and water. Because you will not have a hook up for your RV, your RV may function more like a tent than anything else out in many places. If that is the case, your RV camping supplies will have to be much like those of traditional camping. You will need something to help start a fire with, camping equipment like lanterns, flashlights, and a propane stove, and other traditional camping supplies.

Before leaving home, make sure that your RV camping supplies are appropriate for wherever you are going on your RV vacation.
