Looking for Vw Camper Sales London? Then read on…
The best part about owning a VW campervan is the freedom it brings. Any given Friday, you can load up the van and hit the open road for the adventure of a lifetime. But if you’re planning on hitting a city for the weekend, what should you pack into your van?
City adventures are a different beast to country trips, so you need to be sure you’re well prepared and packing the right equipment. Or rather, not loading yourself up with stuff you won’t need.
Thinking about buying?
Not a camper owner yet? If you’re thinking about checking out VW camper sales London, you can plan plenty of exciting big city breaks. But you might have to tighten the budget a little; VW campers for sale in London are usually more expensive, thanks to the sheer demand and general inflation of capital prices.

We want every VW camper enthusiast to get the van of their dreams, so we’ve made it as affordable as possible!
Hitting big cities like London does, of course, includes lots of idling in traffic as well as long stretches on the motorway en route. So it’s best to make sure your VW campervan’s engine is up to the task. If you’re planning to introduce your VW van to the big city, it’s best to get a specialist to take a look at it for you ahead of time. We have several VW engine specialists on our team, so feel free to give us a call if you need an expert’s opinion.

What to pack?
If you’re hitting the bright lights of London, chances are you can leave your wet weather, mud-friendly gear at home and replace it with your finest glad rags. You can also save plenty of space on provisions as, unlike when you’re parked up in the middle of a far-flung field, a shop is never far away when you’re in town.
So actually, when it comes to packing for a campervan city break, you might find your load is lighter than you expected!
It’s important to remember that, if you choose a heaving metropolis like London for your campervan city break, crime is a little more run-of-the-mill than it might be on top of a mountain in the Peak District. A great tip from seasoned VW travellers is to take a soft, black bag into which you can tuck valuables, wallets, passports etc. The softness of the bag means it back be tucked far away from view into the recesses of your van. Larger, hard cases and bags are a lot more difficult to tuck away, out of sight.
You can also get custom-made VW campervan curtains for good coverage while you’re out and about during the day. Talk to us about that: we can make some great recommendations.
Don’t get lost!
Whichever city you’re heading for, try to get hold of a reliable map and travel guide. If you’re struggling to get online while you travel, having a hard copy to hand might just dig you out of a hole.
