Keep it handy

Go! Drive and Camp Camp Guide - - Front Page -

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.

Safe trav­els.
