Motorhome in Canada

7 items to pack for a Canadian Motorhome Holiday

Motorhome holidays over a unique way to discover Canada. Not being restricted by pre-booked hotels, you can literally wake up every morning and decide where you want to drive to next. The road is truly open.

If it’s your first Motorhome holiday you might be unsure of what you need to pack. While there are some items you’ll need to buy between arriving in Canada and setting off (like food) there are also a few things we recommend taking with you from home that you might not on a regular holiday.

1. Hanging Toiletry bag

When deciding what products to pack for your toiletry bag, we recommend packing what you would usually bring on holiday anyway. The only additional thing you might want to consider is a hanging toiletry bag to save space in what will be a small bathroom.

2. Lightweight towels

While many Motorhome rental companies will provide you with a personal kit, it’s still handy to pack your own lightweight towel. Even if it’s only for relaxing on while you’re parked beside a lake.

3. Plug adapters

Canadian Motorhomes use Canadian plugs so make sure you bring an adapter. Plugs might also be limited (depending on the vehicle) so consider bringing an extension cable and power pack.

4. Ear plugs and eye masks

You’ll be in close sleeping quarters so make sure you bring some earplugs and eye masks to get a good night’s sleep. Some people also recommend packing a bottle of relaxing pillow spray.

5. Lightweight bathrobe and flip flops

If you’ll be stopping by campaign sites, make sure you pack something to nip to and from the communal bathrooms in. They can also come in handy for just lounging in and for when you’re parked near a beach or lake.

6. Entertainment

Even though there’s plenty of natural beauty to admire, and activities to do when you explore Canada by Motorhome – you’ll need some downtime. So make sure you still pack entertainment of your choice, whether that’s a pack of cards, a tablet, book or a portable games console.

7. Insect Repellent

Your Canadian Motorhome holiday might take you far from the city, so remember to pack some insect repellent to keep any bugs at bay. You might also want to consider travel sickness and hayfever tablets for your little medical kit.
