Keep it handy
When we published the Wegsleep Kampgids for the first time in 2012, we knew it would hit the spot with campers and caravanners. It sold like hot cakes and it even won us a prestigious Pica award. It was a no-brainer then to also make it available in English a short while later.
Last year we published a revised version of the Kampgids, and again it proved to be very popular. And with the recent launch of go! Drive & Camp, we thought it would only be fitting to once again give our English readers this handy and reworked guide to camping and caravanning.
The lion’s share of the information you hold in your hands is new and updated. We’re also focussing on some caravanning issues that has been in the spotlight recently – like which driver’s licence you need to legally tow your Penta and the confusion and uncertainty over tare, GVM, GCM, and how much you’re allowed to load in your caravan.
But please don’t see this as a rule book. It is also nothing like your maths text book in school. This is a practical and easy-toread guide for you to use as a reference to make your camping experience safer and even more magical.
By the time you’re through reading it, you will know all there is to know about the towing capabilities of petrol and diesel engines, how to service and maintain your caravan and what you need to pack in case of emergencies. You will definitely also be up to speed with all of the applicable rules and regulations of the road while you’re towing.
The great part is that you don’t have to memorise all the information. Keep this guide in your cubby hole or somewhere in your caravan and take it out when you can’t remember exactly how to go about servicing your caravan’s brakes or which colour wire is the right one for the left indicator. Or just give it a read when you’re relaxing under your rally tent.
