Adventurous Drivers Grab Summer By the Horns with Perfect Prep

If your key ring is home to a Subaru key, then chances are you’ve got an itch that can only be scratched by embracing your sense of adventure.

Whether you’re hiking, camping, or embarking on the next great American road trip this summer, it’s important to take the time to prepare. While most motorists spend plenty of time figuring what to pack, they don’t always spend enough time considering how to pack it.

At Subaru of Morristown, we’ve got a world of experience piling gear into the back of our beloved Subies. Check out our tips for packing before you hit the road!

Start with the Big Stuff

If you’ve ever taken to the trail for a long hike, then you know you want to place your heaviest gear low and centered in your pack, close to your back. If you don’t, you can expect to take a topple down the trail when you lose your balance.

Packing for a road trip

While your Subaru is a lot less likely to take a spill, balance is still important. If you’re bringing anything heavy along for the ride – think trunks of gear, bulky equipment, or furniture when moving – place it farther forward and on the floor of the cargo area. This ensures better handling and less stress on yoru suspension.

Keep the Essentials Handy

As you build outward from your heaviest items, think practically when placing smaller items. A bag with a change of clothes, for instance, is best placed toward the end so that you can grab it without too much effort when you stop for a break.

Even if you’re not traveling with children, Subaru of Morristown’s #1 protip is to pack some baby wipes in the console where you can get to them quickly. Trust us on this one.

Go Above and Beyond

While your Subaru’s cargo area is cavernous, don’t forget about your other options when prepping for a big trip. The roof rack is perfect for an outdoor trip, whether you’re mounting bikes or using a gear bag for extra luggage.

Loading a roof rack

Whenever you carry cargo outside of the vehicle, whether it’s a roof rack of trailer, the important thing is to make sure everything is secured appropriately. In addition to creating a hazard when not mounted properly, loose luggage can lead to the embarrassment of watching your tropical print swim trunks blowing down the highway!
