Carado hopes you
have a great holiday!

Your holiday is approaching, and you can barely contain yourself with excitement. But first, it would be helpful to clear up a few queries before setting off so that nothing gets in the way of your adventure. For example, what are the essentials for my check list? Which technical tips are going to be useful if there’s an emergency? And what should I be aware of when travelling with kids? Carado advice gives you vital information and handy tips about travelling with motorhomes and caravans. We also have a list of essential emergency numbers so that you’re fully prepared for any eventuality.

Perfect Sleep

If you get up in the mornings feeling groggy, it could be down to your party animal nature. Or it could be an uncomfortable bed. You don’t just want to have great days out when you’re on the road, you also want to have a great night’s sleep.

Winter Holiday

Not everyone is enamoured with the idea of holidaying in a motorhome in the middle of winter, but sceptics often have an inaccurate perception of what it’s like. Motorhomes built nowadays are perfectly equipped to deal with any weather.

Recipes

“One year. Three countries. 24 chefs.” – Carado’s culinary project. Professional chefs from Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part in “The Way of Taste” project to show that you don’t need the complete professional kitchen set up to cook creatively.

Cook or Eat Out

It’s the feeling of sheer freedom that people love about travelling in a motorhome. Here today, there tomorrow. Somewhere entirely different the day after. The same goes for mealtimes. It’s a lovely feeling when you can just wake up and choose there and then whether to rustle up breakfast yourself or drop by a nice little café instead.

Mosquitoes

You sit and wait to ambush them with a fly swatter or rolled up newspaper in hand. You lunge your way through the motorhome, from one end to the other. Thwack! Smack! No success. Not only are these tiny insects annoying, they also zip about fairly quickly. We’re sure you’ll be all too familiar with them. We are too, unfortunately. But we do have a solution. 

Secure storage

One of the biggest advantages of holidaying in a motorhome is that you have tons of freedom and flexibility. Whether you want to go hiking in the hills or swimming in one of Europe’s many lakes. 

Tips for newbies

Departure day is approaching, and you’re getting more and more excited about your first trip. You’re also getting more and more nervous. But don’t worry! We’ve put together a few handy tips for you to make sure your journey is easy going, and your first holiday in a Carado goes off without a hitch.

Parking

What is usually a little tricky to do in a car is often much harder in a motorhome just because of how big it is. We’ve put together a few handy tips to make parking on holiday as stress-free as possible and turn you into a parking hero wherever you go. 

Rainy day activities

Everyone who travels with kids knows that you have to come up with something to keep your little ones entertained when the weather isn’t playing ball. We’ve put together a few tips about what you can do when it’s gloomy outside, and they’re guaranteed to brighten up your day. 

Driving licence

First, the good news: you’re authorised do more stuff than you think! You don’t need a special permit to drive camper vans or motorhomes in certain cases. Around 85% of motorhomes manufactured in Germany have a maximum authorised mass (MAM) of 3.5 metric tonnes, so they can be driven on a normal passenger car licence.

Toll roads

Full tank? Check. Luggage packed? Check. Important documents stored in an easy-to-reach place? Check. Great, so you can finally get going now, right? Hold up! How has the holiday been budgeted? Have you already factored in fees for toll roads and any vignettes? If not, you’d better get the calculator back out and recalculate everything, otherwise you might just end up with only crackers and mineral water to eat on the trip.

Sleeping on the road

There are few things nicer in life than stopping at a random spot to set up camp for the night right in the great outdoors. Even better if you stop at particularly spectacular place, far away from the hubbub of the city. Although there are restrictions on when and where you can do that. We’ll tell what you need to know about camping beyond basic pitches and campsites.

Travel with kids

Hooray! It’s finally holiday time! Families particularly enjoy this time of year as it gives them much more free time, for both kids and couples. Is there anything better than discovering new places? Or rather, using the freedom your motorhome gives you to discover new places?

Technical equipment

Take things slow. Have a digital detox. Just leave those work emails in your inbox. Go on, your road trip will feel so great if you do. Unfortunately, we know that it’s not always that easy. There are a few digital aids that you won’t want to do without after all. That’s why our Carado motorhomes also provide a few handy gadgets.

Leisure activities

Fishing. Hiking. Biking. Swimming. Yoga. Travelling with a motorhome makes a multitude of holiday hobbies and recreational activities twice as fun because you can always easily change scenery. Plus, wherever you thought was previously inaccessible can now easily be discovered. All you have to do it fire up the engine and get going.
