    When I had a Land Rover 110, packing was easy as everything went in boxes, one for cooking, one for kit etc. This thing has cupboards though and we've spent the morning trying every possible way of fitting stuff in. It's like packing a suitcase without being able to sit on it to close it:roflmto:

    Next time out will be easier, as everything will be in place, now all I need to to do is to top up the water tank and check tyre pressures.

    If you are anything like us you will have changed everything to different spots by the end of first trip, it's a case of trial and error and can only be resolved by use.
    What I would suggest is make a map of where things are or you will spend ages looking for stuff.

    You'll only do that once ::bigsmile:
    We pad our 4 kitchen lockers with our shower towels before we drive off-stops the rattling.

    Keep loo fluid, grey water jerry can, clean water jerry can, camping chairs, camping table, hookup cable (if you use one) and water hose within easy reach (in boot?). Keep a torch handy in case your gas bottle needs changing at night. Everything else you'll eventually work out for yourself. Make sure your fridge, drawers and cupboards are properly shut before you set off. Enjoy your trip.
