Did you know that almost 1 in every 3 Americans plans to take a road trip each year?
In 2020, taking a road trip is the best way to take a vacation while social distancing from other people.
However, to be able to make a successful and comfortable road trip, you need to have the right equipment.
What vehicle exterior accessories should you consider taking with you? Why not read on to find out.
One of the great things about road trips in the USA is the number of terrains and climates you can experience in one single trip. You can rest assured that Subaru can handle any of these environments.
Of course, your vehicle needs to be able to handle different weather conditions and you need to be able to transport your clothing and equipment needs.
On a single trip, you may need trekking, skiing, desert, and social and comfortable clothes. This is going to take a lot of space! You will need the right car accessories to carry them safely.
We recommend you towing started kit. This will allow you to take a small trailer and expand your capacity. Even if you don’t have a truck with towing attached, a family saloon car can be converted to tow a trailer with one of these kits.
Blind Spot Mirrors
American highways were made for road trips. The wide, broad roads make driving long distances a pleasure. However, during long trips, drivers have to pay special attention to other road users. A lack of concentration for even a second could lead to tragedy.
Regardless of the vehicle you drive, it will have a blind spot. Improve your visibility by attaching small circular blind spot mirrors to your car’s external mirrors.
This will help you to see whether any small vehicles or bikes have crept into your car’s blind spot unnoticed.
Ratchet Tie Down Straps
If you drive a large SUV such as the Subaru Outback Premium, it is unlikely that you will need much extra carrying capacity.
However, any vehicle that is smaller will likely need to make use of every inch of space available. This might include roof or flatbed space.
If you have luggage or other items that you want to transport on your roof, you will need to secure it well, especially if you will be traveling at high speed on highways.
Vehicle accessories such as ratchet tie-down Straps and bungee cords are a must. They are adjustable, meaning that if your load size changes during your trip you can change the tension to match.
You should look for straps that are made of hard-wearing materials such as a polyester fabric. They will take the brunt of wind resistance and will need to be durable to maintain their grip on your possessions for the length of your journey.
