Now that the cold weather is starting to draw in, it’s a wonderful time to start planning your autumn camping trips. We believe there’s no better way to enjoy the outdoors at this time of year than by taking a trip in your campervan.
In today’s blog, we’re going to explore some of the main benefits of taking a campervan trip in the autumn and how to get the most out of it.
1 – More Availability
Whilst many people enjoy outdoor adventures, they can be put off camping in the autumn and winter because it is much harder to stay warm and comfortable! Whilst sleeping bags made from synthetic materials and hot water bottles can help to fend off the cold, it’s never going to be as cosy as a summer night in the tent!
This is where the extra warmth of a campervan makes all the difference!
Inside one of our Free Spirit Campervans, you’ll be kept warm and cosy throughout your trip; if you wish, we can even fit internal heating to really keep you feeling warm throughout the autumn nights.
Because of this, many campsites are left with lots of availability, making it very easy to book wherever your heart desires!
2 – Natural Beauty
Autumn camping trips are perfect for people who love the natural beauty that the season brings. What better way to experience the stunning colours and falling leaves than by camping out in nature itself?
Owning a campervan means that you can get out into the wild and experience it all firsthand whilst still being warm enough to enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking and fishing.
With a campervan, you have the freedom to explore wherever the road takes you. Whilst wild camping is not permitted in England, travelling in a campervan means you can truly get out into the wild and pitch up where allowed.
3 – Campfires and Cooking
As the nights get colder, cooking over a campfire might not be as appealing as it can be in the summer. This is where the in-built kitchen units in all of our Free Spirit Campervans can come in very handy. With a twin gas burner stove and a full sink with running water, you have everything needed to cook up a tasty meal!
Afterwards, once you’ve warmed up, it’s easy to sit around the campfire and share stories (maybe even some ghost stories as we approach Halloween!) and laughter with your travel companions.
