It is recommended when renting a caravan through Camptravel that you inquire about the camp rules, conditions, downloading rental contract and read it carefully. Get as many questions resolved before you retrieve your vehicle. If you rent a caravan that you want to run around with the driver of the car pay extra attention to rules for driving with caravan and the demands when towing a trailer/caravan and requirements of the car.

Get packed sensible and remember that you must not carry excessive weight. If this is your first time and are a little nervous to drive with a caravan, there are many courses around the country, including at FDM, that can be learned in a short time.
