Traveling in a camper van rental throughout the Anchorage area is an exciting experience. At Amazing Accommodations Alaska, we’ve got some great tips on how to keep it a safe and memorable one. Follow the tips below and you’ll enjoy a pleasant adventure with memories to last a lifetime.
1. Be Mindful of Electricity Use
Most camper vans do not include an independent source of electricity. This is why you need to be mindful of your electricity use when you’re not driving the van. Charge your phone during the day so as not to use up unnecessary power. Use a flashlight, which is included with each of our camper van rentals, if you need an extra source of light in the evening.
2. Bring Only the Essentials
Traveling in a camper van is all about experiencing the great Alaskan wilderness with minimal distractions. For this reason, it’s best to bring only the essentials. Besides, you don’t have a lot of room to work with anyway. Thankfully, each of our camper vans are supplied with many of the essentials you’ll need: matches, sheets, pillows, blankets, dishes, cooking utensils, propane stove, and more. You’ll need to bring along personal necessities, such as:
- Food and water
- Other items like phone chargers, books, sunscreen, and insect repellent
3. Refill Your Water Often
Remember to refill your water supply as often as possible. Because you won’t be passing a grocery store or gas station often, you’ll want to have a fully stocked water supply at all times. Whenever you stop to fill up with gas or drive by a convenience store, check your water supply and refill as necessary.
4. Always Lock the Camper
You’ll most likely be taking some time during the day to explore hiking trails and local wildlife, as well as the gorgeous scenery. Be sure to lock the camper van rental whenever you’re not using it. The last thing you want is to come back to a van that has been vandalized or emptied of all your necessities – like food and water.
