    Compiling a list

    Been compiling a list of must haves for going away home and abroad in the Romy when it arrives.
    Amazing what you need to add, list is getting long..... as I am bound to miss some things, what is the absolute essential item(s) you would miss if you forgot to take it? (But don't say the other half!)

    Girly answer for you:- gas hair straighteners. A bit of damp air and my hair goes feral!

        Has to be my dab radio - cannot live without R4 - and TWO hot water bottles! For my poor old joints my memory foam overlay is essential - Outlook seating a bit too firm for a good nights sleep!

          Don't forget your laptop and dongle so you can keep in touch with the forum.

          We wouldn't be without a barbeque in summer, corkscrew also a necessity, particularly if going to France. Portable telly for those long winter nights. Spare gas bottle so you can just swap over when it runs out.

            For me it's my 12v microwave and Snugglesafe heatpad - particularly on long, cold, damp winter nights. (I've tried hot water bottles but it's too easy to sit on them and they go cold too quickly.)

              Been looking at 12 Volt Microwaves but they seem to draw too much current.
              What model do you have? I think it must go on the list.

              Or maybe I could use a 240volt low wattage microwave using an inverter?

                  I use the 12v Wavebox. It's excellent for travelling - rugged, robust and can also operate on 230v mains -

                  It's a 400w model which I use in 3-4 15 minute bursts per day from my 85amp battery which I've not run down (yet!).

                    We've never felt the need for a microwave, for us they take up far too much room and we can cook anything we want in our double skillet.

                    There is an article on the main website about double skillets, well worth the money.

                      A microwave is useful if you don't have gas though because it can cook almost anything (and warm up heatpads!) and can run from a 12v battery. There are no fumes and no condensation problems within a small space so I find it perfect for camping.

                        Hi Karen, I've been thinking about getting a microwave for my van, do you remember how much you paid for your wavebox?

                        As for the list, I always take my wind up radio, it's tiny, and fits in the pelmet of my HyLo.

                          I paid about £125 - not cheap and a purchase I hesitated over for months but never regretted for a second. I've used in woodlands, picnic sites, coast... everywhere while wildcamping with no need for an EHU. It's clean, quick, convenient and so practical - probably the best camping purchase I've ever made (after my Roo, of course!). Highly recommended!

                            Yes good point about condensation but I don't know whether there are many vans without gas, even if its one of those portable suitcase gadgets. Even the smallest tent we have seen has had at least a primus stove.
