The joy involved in a rustic road trip is beyond one's imagination and such tours are equally enjoyed by a single person or groups of people. Another addition to these types of on-road trips is car camping, which can be done at a variety of suitable spots. In some countries, it is known as caravanning and is a highly entertaining activity for people of all ages. There is a unique merriment while planning such tours in new cars, as these trips are usually a first-hand experience for most of the people. However, there are a few essential car travel tips, which must be taken into consideration while commencing on the tour and these are:

      1. People who plan out off-road camping tours through their Sports Utility Vehicles or SUVs should always install proper tyres before beginning the tour. The tyre pressure, oil levels, clutch and brakes of the car should also be examined properly.

      1. Car camping requires the utility of tools, camps, sleeping blankets and other necessary items, which should be packed properly. Along with these equipment, all the important canned food items, kitchenware, cooking gas and other such objects should also be packed.

      1. Among the most important car travel tips is to thoroughly research for a camping site, which is safe and in the vicinity of local habitation. Choosing a barren or stranded land might create problems if any unexpected incident occurs.

      1. Any vehicle, be it new cars or used models, should be first sent to the local mechanic and the problems persisting in them should be removed immediately. People are also advised to always check and keep the spare tyre in the boot.

      1. People travelling from Multi Purpose Vehicles or MUVs have the advantage of extra space at the interior as well as the boot of the car. However, if the provided space seems less to the occupants, they can always attach a roof carrier on their vehicles. Such an addition creates space for a number of items to be mounted on the roof of the car and the inside space can be more utilised by passengers.

      1. Almost all the new cars are usually integrated with a navigation system, which helps the driver guide through unfathomed paths. It is one of the most significant car guides to always keep a map of the place where one is going or to equip the car with the necessary navigation unit. One can also make use of his/her technical devices, such as smartphones, laptops and tabs.

      1. If people are planning to do car camping with their children then it is always advised to opt for a place that offers numerous recreational activities. This way the kids won't get bored and the adults can also spend their time while indulging in creative activities.

      2. It is also recommended in the car travel tips to pack light snacks for the journey. Also, there should always be a first-aid kit kept in the car so as to take proper care of any adversity.

      Necessities, such as camera, binoculars, toiletries, a pair of scissors, direction compasses and enough clothes should be packed in the baggage so as to ensure full protection to each body.
