Tour the Trailer
Play tour guide and give the family a thorough tour of your Off Grid Trailer. Show them how the trailer will be setup at basecamp, have them explore and get comfortable. It may also give them perspective on how much (or little) to pack for the trip. The Pando 2.0 is a great overlanding trailer for families because of its ample storage and comfortable amenities such as an optional second fridge, hot water on demand, well-equipped rear galley, and 24” Smartcast LED TV. The Pando 2.0 also includes a standard roof rack that can be converted to a rooftop tent for accommodations, an easily accessible treehouse for the kiddos.
Packing for Your Trip
Packing for the family trip shouldn’t be much different than how you’re used to packing for your own expedition. Check out our list of packing essentials for a list of must-have items. The biggest differences will be packing more food and snacks, more clothing, more bedding, and anything specific the kids will need such as a portable camping potty, diapers, games, or special hiking gear. Packing for an entire family is a lot. Make a checklist so you don’t forget anything important like your daughter’s favorite sleep toy.
Once you’re on your way, sit back, relax and have fun. The hard part is over! All you have left to do is setup basecamp and let your kids explore all that nature has to offer. You will most likely have an even greater appreciation for overlanding once you’ve seen it through the eyes of your children.
