'No need to pack it up and store it
distancing: Jayco comes up with suggestions for using your own caravan
Have your say
JAYCO Australia has come out with five suggestions for
utilising your caravan as the entire country
continues social distancing, travel restrictions,
closed caravan parks and a ban on road
trips and domestic travel.
"If you have a caravan at home, it doesn't
mean you should pack it up and store it away," it says.
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 bought 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," Ms
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

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
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
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 on-board bathroom and kitchen facilities.
