Everything else - loading the rear cargo area

Regardless of how your clothing and bedding is transported (passenger cabin or car roof), under our setup everything else goes in the rear cargo area of the car, including chairs, furniture, tent accessories, kitchenware, fridge / icebox, food, lighting, tools, gas stove, gas and incidentals. 

Knowing your packing order streamlines the whole car loading process and allows you to start packing some of the items that go in first early. It also helps to avoid the painful packing jigsaw puzzle effect and vain attempts to stuff way too much into not enough space. You might come up with your own preferred car packing system, but as a starting point, we have detailed how our particular camping setup as described in this website is packed in our medium size wagon.
