About Campwagen

At Campwagen, we combine our experiences, lessons and share tips & tricks in an easy-to-read and understand way. All to help you prepare and find the joy in camping from the very first trip.

But with the right gear and knowledge, it’s much easier to enjoy the trip. 

Coming back to the roots might sound scary and uncomfortable. Especially in dispersed places where you’re on your own – without comfort amenities & people to help you set up.
