10 Commandments for caravanners

The Ten Commandments for caravanners

10 Commandments for caravannersIf you’re an experienced caravanner you will probably be familiar with some of the common unwritten rules of caravanning.

But for those of you who are new to it, I thought it might be fun to put together these Ten Commandments for your reading pleasure! Some for fun and some for fact, although the experienced caravanners among you may be able to relate to some of these already 😉

1: Thou shalt have no other hobbies besides caravanning

2: Thou shalt not make unto caravanning any graven image

3: Thou shalt not kill the grass with a non-breathable groundsheet

4: Thou shalt not trigger the caravan site’s trip switch

5: Thou shalt always have a full cocktail cabinet

6: Remember the service, to keep your warranty

7: Honour thy neighbour, keep the noise down past 9pm

8: Thou shalt not steal someone else’s pitch

9: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s caravan

10: Thou shalt not load too much in the front of thy caravan

Keeping true to the style of the original Ten Commandments, I’ll leave you to interpret these as you will.

  1. My husband and I have just started to go caravanning! I think it’s a great lot of fun! It’s definitely our new favorite hobby. I’m going to have to make a list of these commandments for our wall!

  2. Hi
    We have just purchased our first caravan and really looking forward to seeing what it’s all about.
    It is an abbey archway royale 520 elegance,
    Above the door are some switches and don’t know what they all do as the writing has worn away and nothing obvious happens when I switch them,
    Does any one have one that can take a pic and email it to me ?

  3. Hi josh
