Sleeping Bags or sheets & duvets
flip flops or crocs for walking to the toilet block!
cooking pans/saucepans
kitchen paper
games to keep everyone amused if it rains!
good books/magazines
washing up liquid
clothes washing kit
some form of washing line (i use a stretchy twisted one which you don't need pegs for & will stretch between awning poles)
toilet chemicals if not already in the van
dustpan & brush
bin bags or carrier bags for rubbish
insect repellant (depending on where you are going)

I always take my slow cooker , if you have hook up that is.
It means you can go off for the day and come back to an almost ready made meal.Or a bbq if you want to do lots of that in the evening ,weather permitting.
