Are you ready to get out of your house and explore a bit of America? As the sun returns, people become excited to hit the road for family road trips. If you own a pickup truck, then you already have the best vehicle for the adventure. Here’s why:
- Versatility. Trucks are built to handle whatever the road brings them. Whether your adventures will take you to the heights of Aspen, through forested roads to hidden campsites, or over dirt trails in Arizona, trucks can get you where you want to go.
- Storage. There are virtually no limitations to what you can take with you when you’re driving a pickup truck. It’s easy to add storage with a tonneau cover, truck bed storage system, or even by hauling a trailer.
- Ease of Driving. Rather than renting or purchasing a recreational vehicle, many vacationers feel safer driving the pickup truck they already own. Trucks aren’t as big and bulky as other vacation rigs and give drivers tremendous visibility. Because trucks are higher off the road, drivers can more easily see what’s on the road ahead of them.
- Stop Anywhere. It’s simple to fill up the tank at any gas station, and it’s easy to park your truck to grab a meal or pick up a few supplies. There’s no reason not to stop at every exciting attraction along the way!
- Comfort. Today’s trucks have ample legroom (even in the back seat!), seat warmers, stadium seating, multiple power outlets, and full navigation and entertainment systems. Everyone can relax and enjoy the sights along the way.
How to prepare your truck before your road trip:
Before you jump in your truck and go, it’s essential to make sure it is fully prepared for the journey.
- Make sure your vehicle is up to date on service changes and all the fluids are full.
- Check the tread of your tires and replace them if they look worn. While you’re examining the tires, make sure the air pressure is at the right level, too.
- Clean out all the pockets, cup holders, and the area under the seats to remove everything you don’t need for the trip.
- Update your truck’s first aid kit, and make sure to pack a small shovel, an extra blanket, and a jug or two of water.
- Invest in a quality set of mud flaps. Mudflaps protect your truck and other vehicles on the road from road debris that gets kicked up as you drive.
