Travelling and living in a car is becoming more popular with travellers. Not only do you save on accommodation but you get to drive anywhere you want. We all know that travelling can cost a lot of money so it’s a cheaper way to travel. However, if you’re travelling far, you might want to consider turning your car into a more comfortable space where you can comfortably eat and sleep. So if you’re planning a road trip or even looking to live in your car, we’ve come up with the following tips on how to turn your car into a hotel.
Assess if your car would be suited for a makeover. Ideally, you would want to take a car that’s a bit more spacious as you will need space for sleeping and eating. Usually, the most common vehicle for travelling is a regular van that can be customised.
Now that your car is ready, it’s ideal to create storage spaces for useful items that you would bring to your travels. For instance, you can build an area where you can store your kitchen utensils and your clothing space.
You’re going to be on the road most of the time so you may not always find a nearby place to shop and eat. So before hitting the road, make sure to buy plenty of food beforehand. Make sure you purchase kitchen equipment for cooking too. We recommend purchasing essential equipment such as a portable stove, pots, bowls and cutlery. If you’re thinking of buying fresh foods, you may also want to invest in a compact fridge or a necessary cooler.
Technology and Electricity
Travelling in a van doesn’t mean you need to compromise electricity. You can now purchase portable generators that provide you with power whether it’s charging your mobile phone or your laptop. You can also bring a wireless Wi-Fi where you can connect to the internet on the go.
