Default Newbie - have I forgotten anything?

Hi, I am about to purchase my first static caravan - deposit paid but just waiting for the plot to be vacated before paying the balance. I've been busy buying all the essentials but is there anything that I may have forgotten? Things which others realised they needed after they 'moved in' and wished they had remembered to buy earlier? It's all very new to me....

to the forum.

Bottle opener
Cork screw.

You may not be happy if you don't have those two items.

In addition to them, I'm sure items will crop up that you may need such as electrical extension sockets. ( the ones with 2, 3 or 4 sockets on them). You will never have enough sockets. It's always good to have at least one handy.

also, once you are in your caravan, just walk from room to room with a pen and paper and look around and just write down what you think you need for each room..
the shopping is the best part....

No, it isn't. I get bored, Christine always wants to look at everything in the store.

It's a 2013 ex hire fleet van which will be completely checked over and fully valeted before I pay the balance so hopefully all the lights will be ok so no bulbs needed yet but getting spare ones is a good idea. And I have to agree - shopping for new stuff is great if a little addictive!
