|How to pack:
Space in the vehicles will be limited.
Bring your pillow and a small backpack or bag to keep at your van seat with items you will want while driving. Include a sweatshirt or light jacket, rain clothes, camera, binoculars, wallet, books, cards, games, etc.
Sleeping bags and tents may fit under your seat.
Put everything else in a large backpack, suitcase, duffle bag, or sturdy plastic storage bin (preferable if you have breakable items in it). There will only be room for one of these per person; they will be stacked in the trailer, and will not be accessible while driving. There should be some limited space for a collapsible chair or other camping equipment.
