Christmas camping has a completely different festive feeling to camping at other times in the year and when you have a portable generator for camping, there’s nowhere you can’t go. Here are 6 of our favourite Christmas escapes in your campervan.
Fancy a Christmas campervan getaway without worrying about things like whether there’ll be an electric hook-up? We think we can help you out.
Here are 6 places you could escape to in your campervan this Christmas, and as long as you have one of our handy portable generators for camping, you’ll never be without all the home-from-home comforts that make Christmas camping so special—your favourite camping stove for toasting marshmallows, heating up mulled wine, and keeping your phone charged to take photos of a Christmas escape you’ll remember for years to come.
