We’ve all been there before. We stare into our garage as we attempt to pack for our weekend trip, contemplating if we need two or 12 headlamps (never mind the fact that we only have one head to wear them on). Whether you’re a car camping rookie or a seasoned veteran, packing for a car camping or overlanding trip can present quite the challenge. Oftentimes we wish there were someone (or something) to tell us which camping essentials to pack to relieve our turmoil. Luckily, Luno has compiled a handy list of what to pack so that you never have to worry about forgetting your sunscreen again!
We’ve broken our list into three categories. You’ve got your Bare Essentials for the minimalist on the move. The Comfortable Camper for a mid-level packer, and the Extended Stay for those who like to bring everything plus the kitchen sink on the road. Keep in mind that everyone is different, so be sure to customize each list to your liking!
