10 classic camping & campervan hacks
Sugru Mouldable Glue and the great outdoors are made for each other. People use it to fix stuff if things go wrong or make ingenious little improvements to their camping gear and campervans. It can add grips to equipment, fix noisy bike racks, even seal leaky boots, and patch up punctures. Once set, Sugru turns into a durable, flexible rubber that is heat-resistant, electrically insulating and can withstand extreme weather conditions. So be sure to pack some for your next trip.
Your adventure starts here 🏕
Here we explore some of the ways Sugru prepares campers for anything.
1. Make things grippy 🖐
2. Replace missing parts 🕳
3. Repair any zip 📎
4. Make things heatproof 🔥🙅♀️
5. Seal leaky boots & patch up punctures 💦🚫
6. Fix a rattling bike rack 🚲
7. Mount a small mirror 💁♀️
Picture this. Your campervan designers have thought of everything (including a little cupboard for cosmetics and meds) – except one thing: a mirror. No need to send panic through the campsite, use Sugru to mount one exactly where you want it. It’ll hold up to 2kg in weight so you can make handy hooks to hang things, including a removable tablet mount.
Note: Sugru sets to 1.5mm in 12 hours, 3mm in 24 hours and thicker applications may take longer. For load-bearing projects, or if Sugru's exposure to air is limited when squished between surfaces, allow up to 48 hours for it to fully set.
8. Make multi-functional features 🤹♂️
9. Personalise water bottles 💧
10. Little emergency tin 🆘
Imagine a multi-tool meets a first aid kit. Repurpose a Sugru tin, pack it with emergency essentials and there you have it. Painkillers, plasters, tweezers, safety pins, a needle and thread, buttons, paperclips, fold-away scissors, string, an antiseptic wipe, and a single-use pack of Sugru – of course.

DERRICK & PAULA'S STORY
Fix for a guy, a girl & a campervan
Derrick and Paula are fiercely independent fixers and makers. One day they decided to sell everything and embark on what should have been a two-month road trip. It turned into the trip of a lifetime that lasted a bit longer than planned. For two years, they lived in 63-square feet of metal on wheels, fixing, making, and hacking their way across North America.
