Before you embark on your next road trip, you need to make sure you have all the necessary items to make sure you get the most out of it. Follow this list to make sure you will be ready to go traveling across country well-equipped — and in style!
A Phone Or GPS Holder
A mount will drastically improve your driving. You will no longer need to take your eyes completely off the road to check the GPS or to switch up your road trip playlist.
A Portable Grill
Nothing is better than cooking your own food, so why not stop and get a few burgers and dogs to grill up while your at your next stop.
Some Healthy Snacks
The typical road trip snacks seem to include chips, candy, soda, and a few other unhealthy items. Bring along a few healthy snacks to break up the monotony of shoving chips in your mouth.
Some Not-So-Healthy Snacks
But, we realize no road trip is complete without the occasional treat. Pack some chips and candy, just make sure not to overdo it though.
Why would you spend hundreds of dollars for one night in a hotel room? Just bring along your tent to save some extra gas money to go even further.
A Travel Blanket
Not only will blankets keep you warm while sleeping, they are perfect for picnics or just laying down to enjoy the sunset at the beach you just traveled to.
You might not realize that you are getting tons of UV rays while sitting in your car. Bring some sunscreen along the way to help protect your skin.
A Travel Pillow
Pillows are extremely versatile. Not only can you sleep on them, you can use them to support your back when it’s your turn to drive for several hours.
A Protable Electric Cooler
Most coolers will just turn in to a bucket full of warm water and wet sandwiches eventually. An electric cooler will help keep all your beverages cold and prevent the dreaded soggy sandwich!
A Decent Camera
Camera phones are great for capturing everyday moments, but can only do so much. Bring along a decent camera to make sure you remember every moment of your special trip.
A Portable Coffee Maker
Everybody on road trips need one thing — caffeine! This portable coffee maker will give you that boost of energy you need to power through the final few hours of your drive.
A Multi-USB Charger
Everyone in your car will most likely have a cell phone or some sort of tablet and we know how quickly those batteries die. A mutli-USB charger will ensure that everyone will be charged and ready post or tweet every second of the journey.
Not only do they help shield your eyes from the sun, they just make you look even more badass during the trip.
An Actual Roadmap
Believe it or not, having a real map in your hand will come in handy some places. There are tons of rural areas that don’t support cell service and you will be out of luck if you get stranded in the middle of nowhere.
You will be spending countless hours inside a small confined area, so things could get messy. Moist towelettes will help keep everything clean and sanitary the whole trip.
