Instant coffee, water and a gas bottle. Keep thinking a coffee machine would be nice but I can over think things, it is a van after all.
Ah but that sweet smell of fresh ground coffee when you're camping. Hmmm. Thunk you need to do this!!

Mines full of work stuff day to day. So always a selection of tools, tapes, hammers, zip ties, wires, etc. Enough to get me through most emergencies. Anything else and the breakdown card will come out 👍🏼

I normally have oil and a couple of litres of water , spare wheel and trolley jack and a small compressor , plus France bag , with high viz vests , triangle , bulbs and spare belts and sensors , also have break down cover , which I would only use if totally stuck , but keep hearing about tyre weld instead of spare wheel , if I get a flat at 60 tyre weld won’t fix , and breakdown cover will take u for a tyre , if places are open , once on a France trip I took two spares for Elgrand and two spares for trailer
