What To Stock In The Pantry

When it comes to caravanning, it can be difficult to figure out what exactly to get from the grocery store and stock in the caravan for your trip.

There are several factors to consider:

  • How long until you will replenish the pantry again?
  • Will the groceries last the length of your trip?
  • How much cooking will you be doing?
  • How much effort do you want to put into cooking?

After considering that, you can get a vague idea of what to get. But in the case of most caravan owner’s, they usually don’t want to have to pack, restock and unpack groceries before and after every trip. Some prefer to just leave long-lasting grocery items in the caravan till the next trip.
