Get our top tips for saving money on a campervan trip:

Got a sweet tooth? With our campervan kitchen at your disposal, you and your campervan have a lot more options than the average Joe (although we have nothing against a tasty bar of chocolate). Finish your day sitting next to a cozy campfire, with a delicious dessert in hand, and you’ve got yourself a perfect end to your day (and well deserved!). Here are a few of our favorite campervan dessert recipes that are easy to make.

  1. Roast marshmallows over the campfire.
  2. Get s’more ready by placing the chocolate on the graham cracker.
  3. Once the marshmallow is ready, place between two graham crackers and experience the oozing glory! (Escape Tip: you may need to scrape the marshmallow off the stick with the two graham cracker pieces to get all the gooeyness).

Banana Boats

  2. Fill in the middle with marshmallows and candy.

Oil (coconut, vegetable or canola oil)

  1. Add the oil and 3 popcorn kernels to a large pot.
  2. Cover and cook over medium-high heat until all 3 kernels pop.
  3. Take the three kernels out of the pot.
  4. Line the bottom of the pot with kernels 1 deep.

Escape Tip

Be sure to keep your eyes out for the seasonal fruit and veggie stands along the side of the road for your meals.
