SOCIAL DISTANCING: Five ways to use your caravan during isolation by Jayco Australia

24th Jul 2020

With the entire country implementing social distancing, travel restrictions in place and caravan parks temporarily closed, road trips and domestic travel have been turned upside down. If you have a caravan at home, it doesn’t mean you should pack it up and store it away. Here are some ideas of how you can use your RV during isolation.

Create a caravan classroom

Converting your caravan into a classroom for your children is good way to separate schooling and normal home life. Just ask Kalgoorlie mum, Jihan Meenehan, who recently purchased a brand-new Jayco RV completely online through phone calls, video chats and emails, and transformed it into a home-school classroom for her six-year-old daughter.

“Our new Jayco Journey Outback is so modern and super comfortable, and it’s a good way for my daughter and I to physically step out of the house and get into ‘school’ mode away from the distractions inside the house,” said Ms Meenehan.

Make a habit of getting your kids to go to the caravan each day for their school lessons. If you have kids in year 12, they can use the caravan as a quiet study space.

Convert your caravan into a temporary home office

Working from home and don’t have a spare room or a comfortable working space in the house? Why not convert your caravan into a temporary home office?

Set up a comfortable workstation and add some wall decorations, rugs and plants to create a cozy working environment. The best thing about turning your caravan into a home office is that there are minimal distractions and you can easily separate work and home life.

Transform your RV into a studio or playroom

Need more space to create or play?  Why not use your caravan as an outdoor studio space or children’s cubby house in the garden? Now is the perfect time to take up new activities or hobbies, whether it’s learning a new instrument or creating arts and crafts. Use your caravan as your very own creative studio space.

If you have children, use it as a dedicated playroom or cubby house and fill it with toys, games and activities to keep them occupied throughout the day. This helps reduce clutter inside the home.

Enjoy an overnight staycation in your very own backyard

While there are travel restrictions in place and your caravan can’t be used to go on a road trip, why not take a ‘staycation’ in your very own backyard? Set up your caravan and holiday in your front or backyard. Relax in your deck chair with your favourite drink, strike up the barbie, toast marshmallows under the stars and sleep in your caravan.

Self-isolate and rest in a self-contained caravan

If a family member is unwell, a self-contained caravan* is a good place to self-isolate from the rest of the family. If you do have a family member self-isolating in a caravan, ensure you avoid contact and adhere to all advice provided by the Department of Health.

*Subject to having an on-board bathroom and kitchen facilities.
