A great item to carry with you when out and about in your caravan is a good caravan tool kit. We will talk you through what we have in our caravan tool kit. I now have two toolkit boxes. The first the smaller has all the “tools” in it and then the larger toolbox which is kept in the front lock has larger items that we use.

Smaller Caravan Tool Kit
The handy thing with this is it eradicates the need for several screwdrivers. This one comes with a selection of different heads and sizes which saves on weight and space. That way you always have the bit you need for all the jobs either inside or outside.
Again same with the multibit screwdriver this allows for adjustment and so saves on weight and space. Always handy when attaching a new gas bottle to your BBQ.
With lots of messy and greasy jobs around the caravan, it is always handy to carry some gloves with you this way it saves your hands from getting dirty.
Pliers / Wire Cutters
I’ve included both pliers and wire cutters here. With a selection of combination pliers, long nosed pliers and wire cutters. This will give you the full selection for all the jobs you might come across.
Small Claw Hammer
If something comes apart and needs a small amount of gentle persuasion then having a small hammer to help always works a treat. The claw part I’ve used in the past to get troublesome pegs out of hardstanding pitches.
A Selection of Cable Ties
Not always helpful to tie cables together. I’ve used cable ties for lots of other jobs. A good selection of sizes is always a good bet.
Not necessarily a must have for the toolkit but when I was deciding what items we wanted in the caravan I weighed them all in so I could keep an eye on our payload. To save losing it we keep it in the tool kit.
You will find jobs for these precision screwdrivers all day long. Maybe not on the caravan but when away on holiday and you need an incredibly small screwdriver then you’ll be glad you have these to handy.
The things I always need when I don’t have them. Best to stock up on both kind of fuses. The domestic type for any mains plug that decides to blow and the blade fuses for the caravan’s consumer unit.
If you do have electrical issues when away this Multimeter is always good at finding where the issue is.
Larger Caravan Tool Kit
We mainly use this item along with the leg winder to lower the steadies but if you do need to some major work while away in your caravan this can help.
Leg Winder Drill Adapter
Used in conjunction with the cordless drill. This makes lowering the steadies much easier and less time consuming.
If something should move but doesn’t then a quick squirt of this will loosen it up.
Selection of Tape
If something has started to move and shouldn’t then this will stop it moving. Always good to have a selection of colours and sizes. This could also be used if any bodywork is loose and you need to get home.
We use this for banging rock pegs into hardstanding pitches. This has never lets us down.
We use this before every trip to ensure our wheel nuts are at the correct setting. It is also worth checking shortly after the wheel has been removed. For more information on using a torque wrench click HERE.
