If you and your partner are heading off for an epic holiday with another couple, you need a camper that can accommodate the unique needs of two couples travelling together. Wondering which features and amenities can help? Take a look at these suggestions.
Consider Separate Rooms
Separate rooms are ideal for couples, and many people might argue that separate rooms are a non-negotiable necessity for two couples travelling together. Luckily, there's lots of options.
If you're investing in a full-sized RV or a fifth wheel, look for one with a separate master bedroom. Then, one couple can have the privacy of that space whilst the other couple stays in one of the beds in the lounge area. A camper that attaches to a ute can also be something to consider, as one couple can get a bit of privacy in the bed over the ute cab.
If you are travelling in a smaller camper that doesn't have a separate bedroom or bunk area, make your own divider. A shower curtain or tension rod can conveniently split up a camper. Alternatively, you can put some hooks into the ceiling and attach a rod and curtain to them. Then, remove the divider during the day.
Focus on Extra Storage
With four adults travelling together, you may want to opt for a camper trailer that has extra storage to hold all your stuff. Look for campers that have effectively optimised their space with under-the-bed storage, subdivided cupboards, extra luggage storage underneath the camper and similar types of amenities.
Move as Much as Possible Outside
A camper gives you a home away from home, but at the end of the day, you are still camping, and as a result, it's fun to be outside as much as possible. Additionally, with four adults in small quarters, you may appreciate the opportunity to stretch out outside.
To that end, consider packing outdoor games, but also look into bringing supplies so you can dine outside. You may even want an outdoor shower.
Buy a Camper Trailer
Finally, to allow for a bit of exploring at each destination, you may want to buy or hire a camper trailer, rather than an RV or caravan with its own motor. Then, you just detach the camper trailer, and you can drive the vehicle where you want. This also makes it more convenient for the two couples to split up and do separate things during the day.
