Winterising your Caravan 

Thank you for sharing this! Getting ready for winter has always been a bit of a mystery to us. We haphazardly succeeded last year but it is very helpful to have a road map! We bought a large bag of Silica Gel cat litter (about £1.50 in Home Bargains) and put it in disposable plastic food trays around the caravan (no lids on). These make very economical and effective damp traps. We also put some Kitty Litter in pop socks and hung them in the wardrobes to help keep everything dry.

The dark nights are drawing in, the clocks have gone back and the temperature has dropped. Site wardens all over the UK are leaf blowing and hanging up their keys for the season. This can only mean one thing. Lots of people will be putting their caravans into storage until next spring. This is something we’ve never done.

I hate the thought of winter and putting the caravan to bed. We use ours all year round normally so this isn’t so much of a problem to us. This year, however, we have a few weeks were the ‘van isn’t going to be used over the winter months. So we decided to share with you one or two little things that we did to ‘bed ours down’, albeit for just a little while. Please be aware that these aren’t hard and fast guidelines, simply just what we did to close ours…

AD (After Dogs) - We retired early to tour Europe in a caravan with four dogs. "To boldly go where no van has gone before". Since 2021, we've been at large in a 24.5-tonne self-converted ex-army truck called The Beast. BC (Before Canines) - we had adventures on every continent other than Antarctica!
