No restaurant? No problem
The kitchen in our 1967 Bailey Maestro is incredibly different to the kitchen in our 2019 Bailey Phoenix. The Phoenix is equipped with a 4-burner hob, microwave, and separate grill/oven, which makes home cooking easy even when you’re not at home. Would you like a holiday with a little less cooking? There’s no better time for the kids to learn a new ‘life skill’ by cooking a favorite meal. If all else fails, pre-preparing meals can save time and washing up.
If you’ve booked a pitch without an electric hook-up point, or plan to cook frequently while away, it’s worth checking butane or propane levels. Most seasoned leisure vehicle owners take a spare bottle, or refillable systems such as Gaslow make it easy to fill-up at service station LPG points. If you use a lot of gas, a refillable system is a good investment and can pay for itself.
Even if you feel comfortable using campsite loo and washroom facilities, there’s a lot of speculation as to whether they will open initially. Caravans and motorhomes are truly self-contained thanks to a cassette toilet, but remember to order enough loo chemicals and toilet paper before you leave.
