With the new season on it's way - the first for some, us included we're starting to do odd little jobs and thinking about what to pack and where to put it. With that in mind, how do you make the best use of space under the back seat what do you store under there? Any other packing tips you've found along the way?

Fan heater, electric kettle, picnic mat, small pan
Jack, spanner for gas bottle, tools, engine oil, spare bulbs, hook-up cable, foot-pump
Spares specific to Brazibay: wiper blades, clutch cable, fan belt, fuses

On the campsite we use the roof-bed as a shelf. Clothes travel in two canvas boxes (40x40x30cm)which are easy to lift onto and off the shelf.

I'll add to my list, just found it whilst cleaning, a block of wood (no pallets Tim), to put under the scissor jack when changing the rear wheels. Mine is lowered and without the wood the scissor jack has to go way too high for my liking before I can remove the wheels.

Tow-rope.

Best to use to pull the camper if you have a towing eye added to the front chasis.
