The benefits of the trunk for long journeys

When we drive around the city, manyitems and equipment are not necessary for us. But if we are preparing for a long journey, then immediately the question arises of what to take on the road, both for himself and his iron horse. And the harder the journey, the more thoroughly the preparation and the amount of equipment required should be.

I remember how I once had a three-doorNiva and we went with friends to conquer the expanses of Mother Russia in the middle of spring. It was a fun trip, emotional. But the car was small, and a few people there, to put it mildly, cramped. It’s good that one of us guessed to suggest that an expedition roof rack be installed. Not only did we leave our backpacks and other things there, he also came in handy more than once on the road.

The benefit of the trunk

Now Russian SUVs are in the past, andon the streets romp huge jeeps with large boot. But as practice shows, the roof rack also does not hurt them. It is clear that if you go to the forest for mushrooms, then most likely it will not be useful, however, if we are talking about traveling by company for several weeks, then even when traveling to a camping on the Black Sea, it will be necessary. It hurts a lot of things to take for a comfortable stay. And about the expedition on the road, I generally keep quiet. True, there is likely the preparation will not cost only one trunk.

We recently traveled around Europe tothe car. They took with them tents, sleeping bags, food for most of the trip, warm clothes, laptops, an inverter and a whole lot more. How uncomfortable it was that we didn’t have an extra roof rack. Since the one that is in the car is only suitable for trips to the supermarket, but not to overcome the 8000 km of 4 people. And that was easier, to change the car to a more spacious, or just equip it with a trunk?

Highly recommend Thule arc and trunk. Himself recently took bike mounts on the roof and soon will take and boxing, too, from this company. Under the link my review.

In any case, this purchase will not be superfluous andin ordinary life - bring a couple of boxes with furniture from the store, or a couple of boards to the country. And most importantly, a car with such an attribute will only look in a more advantageous light compared to its classmates.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
