Packing list mobile home - your camping checklist for the camper vacation

Use the RV packing list as a camping checklist before your RV trip. Our camping mobile home packing list will help you if you still need equipment. Motorhomes that you rent already have most of them in their equipment. However, during our motorhome trip, we experienced that certain things were missing. You can use this list to check whether your motorhome has everything you need for a Motorhome trip need If necessary, you can still get the rest. We have linked some of the equipment. You can order these online via the link. You can find the camping checklist here to check everything again: the packing list for the mobile home Ausdrucken you can find here. (Warning: the RV packing list pdf is not complete. We regularly update and expand the online version.) You will find that there is less space in a RV than you might imagine.

How do I pack the motorhome correctly?

Basically, heavy objects belong below. Slight upwards. You should also make sure that the weight is evenly distributed throughout the motorhome. So don't pack all the heavy things in the rear loading area. are also helpful storage boxes*, in which you can store small items such as crockery, cutlery and other small utensils. So you can easily find them again.

What do you need for camping? What is necessary as a camper equipment?

Motorhome packing list for the camper vacation

When shopping for groceries, it is worth making sure that you have to go shopping as rarely as possible. Most RVs are large. Our experience has shown that shopping opportunities do not always have parking spaces where you can park a motorhome without any problems. Even in the inner cities of larger cities, it is often difficult to get a parking space. We have seen again and again that we had to park the motorhome outside of the city. Far from shopping. That is why we make sure to take food that is as durable as possible with you when traveling with the motorhome. This RV packing list provides suggestions for groceries that are useful on the go.

Basic emergency food list

Camping checklist food - durable food

  • Drinking water

  • Cookies / Chocolate / Chips
  • Flour (in a can)
  • Pasta / rice
  • Tomato sauces in various flavors
  • Fish / sausage in a can. The more diverse, the better.
  • Mustard / ketchup (portions)

  • Roasted onions
  • bun

Fresh food - packing list camper

  • milk
  • butter / Margarine
  • Bread (possibly for freezing)
  • eggs
  • Ham / sausage vacuum packed
  • Sausages a. in the can
  • Salami / pepper biter or similar
  • fresh vegetables / fruit
  • Meat (vacuum packed)


Even in larger mobile homes, the space is nevertheless limited. When it comes to kitchen equipment, this means paying close attention to what is used for what. Is it possible to swap out an item for a smaller one? A pasta spoon, for example, replaces the sieve with us. In addition, we protect the pipelines in the mobile home. However, we have crockery, glasses, cups and cutlery 2-3 times per person. Therefore, we don't have to do the dishes after every meal. Finally, we do the dishes all at once in a dishwashing bowl that we use on the campsite.

If you rent a mobile home, you should also take into account that you have to transport everything you take with you home after you return the vehicle. Be it in the car or on public transport if you only rent the vehicle from A to B. This automatically reduces the equipment. The packing list for the motorhome holiday therefore needs to be well thought out. You can also print out the list of the most important accessories in the PDF motorhome packing list.

What should not be missing in a mobile home?

Kitchen Equipment - Packing List Motorhome Vacation


In any case, bedding and covers are sufficient in the packing list for a mobile home holiday in summer. in the Autumn or spring, however, there can be nights that are already or still quite cold. Then we are happy if we have extra blankets with us for cold nights. Instead, we take a sleeping bag and pillow with us when winter camping. These provide additional heat when the outside temperatures are cold. When it comes to bathing bags for showering on the campsite, we also make sure that the bags are waterproof and can be hung up in the shower cubicles. So we have all bathing utensils at hand.

Basic motorhome equipment

We make sure that the equipment is as practical as possible. A flashlight and headlamp, for example, have proven indispensable. If you have to leave the mobile home again at night, a flashlight is definitely good for illuminating the paths. Instead, we take a headlamp with us when we have to work on the mobile home at night. That way we have both hands free for work.

By the way, every mobile home should have a cable drum. After all, the nearest socket is not always close by. It definitely does a good job there. The same applies to the watering can and water hose. Otherwise, the parking space is further away from the water tap than the hose is long. Another time you might instead stay overnight on a pitch without a fresh water connection. Then a watering can helps. With a water hose, you should also make sure that it is available with tap connectors of different sizes. Only then can you be sure that you can connect the hose to the tap anywhere.

Ramps are also useful if the parking space is uneven. Otherwise you will level the mobile home. On top of that, chocks let us sleep better when the mobile home is on a mountain slope. The level check for the gas bottle is also important. This tells you, for example, how much gas is left. On hot summer days, an odor improver is also good for the waste water. Otherwise, odors can quickly become unpleasant.
