Top tips for getting started in the new touring season

Although more and more people are touring all year round, many are still making plans for that first trip away in February and March. Before you set off on your next adventure, take note of our top tips for getting started in the new touring season to make sure everything goes off without a hitch.

Before you go

1) Have a good spring clean. Look critically at anything in your outfit that you didn’t use last season – do you really need to carry it with you? It's also a good idea to try and fit in a weekend away before any longer trips to make sure everything is running as expected, especially if you’ve got a new outfit

2) Always thoroughly sterilise the fresh water system, including water containers and filling hose, after winter lay-up or any other lengthier period of storage. Check out our fresh water touring tips to make sure you've got everything covered

3) Leave enough time to prepare – don’t risk a minor fault or forgotten ‘essential’ spoiling your first trip away
