    As the heading says I'm looking for Customisable / Printable Pre-travel Checklists. I am aware of the very comprehensive lists available for purchase but these do not seem to be able to be personalised.

    As Jim says why don't you make your own?
    Any spreadsheet software would work if it is a simple tick box list that you're looking for.

    Made our own in Office Word, then printed off and laminated.

    Ditto. Just keep adding to it when you forget something. or to quote from the caravanner of the year. "just add to the list so you can tick it off":rolleyes:

    We don't unpack the Moho-only things from the van - and the actual maps stay in there - so the checklist is more like a normal holiday list - has the van run out of shampoo, toothpaste - or tinned peas? sort of thing - plus our clothes and assorted holiday paraphernalia.

    As long as you carry some plastic most of it can be sourced elsewhere anyway - but if you take that attitude I have found, it more or less guarantees you won't need to treat yourself to anything new! LOL

    As already said much of it stays in the van except for this last year which went tits belly up and the van sat outside all winter so we unloaded the clothing and food. We print this list off each time and tick off as we load.
    Edit: Only Pdf. appear to upload not word docs so you probably won't be able to copy and edit but hey ho . . .

    I found an app today called "Packing List" there is a limited lite version and a Full version ( No adds, more flexible etc, costs a couple of quid).
    Been playing about with the full version for a few hours... I know...sad!! Anyway, it shows promise! Quite user friendly, I have created a Motorhome packing list, split down into categories and store areas and have added loads of equipment and items to those categories. Each type of item allows you to record it's weight and quantity. I'm hoping that an "all up" weight will be shown when I have finished playing about. You can create as many lists as you want and easily copy items from one list to another by just selecting tick boxes. I intend to make two lists, one for short trips, another for longer holidays.
    I realise that once completed I may never bother with it again!, but at the moment it is keeping me occupied and making me realise how much I'm carrying around in the van!!

    Check it out!! :happy:

    Not exactly the same thing but I have a laminated A4 sheet stuck on my fridge and as I run out of things or think of something that needs to go in the van I list it with a felt tip pen. I also have a column headed shopping. Works well and is easy to wipe clean when everything attended to.

    Ooo, I love lists. Made up own master checklist and run off for each trip and amend as needed. Used Word Table, so can always insert/delete extra rows.

    Yup, hands up, will add something I'd forgotten, or already done, just to have the pleasure of crossing it off! :giggler:
