HERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT TO ADD TO YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE YOUR SUMMER VACATION
Now that summer’s finally here, so it's time to start planning your trips.
Before you head out, check out some additions you might want to consider making to your car. Some of these are small and inexpensive, but could prove very useful:
- Bike/Roof Rack – Though bike and roof racks for your car are no minor expense (They usually cost at least a couple hundred dollars.), they can make your outdoor trips a lot more convenient and a lot less stressful.
- Floor/Seat Covers – Whether you’re going to the beach, camping or hiking, you’re not going to be able to avoid getting some dirt, pebbles and sand in your car, no matter how hard you try. But, a couple cheap seat and floor covers can save you a lot of cleaning time.
- Bed Cover/Net Tailgate – If you’re driving a pickup, a bed cover can be a good idea to keep your cargo safe and a net tailgate instead of the usual solid one can help to reduce wind resistance while you drive.
- Sun Block/Med Kit/Water – A bottle of sunblock, a small medical emergency kit and a bottle of water are three inexpensive things that you’ll never regret having nearby and that will fit easily into your glove box. The water might get warm and stale tasting if it’s been in your car for a long while, but if you have some car trouble on a hot day far from home, you’ll be glad you have it while you’re waiting for someone to pick you up.
Some of these things could make your life a lot easier (and safer) in the future, so think about adding them to your vehicle. Whether you use these ideas or not though, we hope you enjoy your summer vacation!
