Spring weather is finally here, and there’s nothing like celebrating its arrival with a little trip into mother nature. Car camping is a great way to get out and enjoy the fresh air, and it’s even better when you have a great car to accompany you.
Most of the choices in the Chevy lineup at Dan Young GM make for great car camping vehicles, whether you have the nimble Chevrolet Trax crossover, the powerful Silverado pickup, or even the Chevy Sonic hatchback. The most important thing when car camping is a versatile interior with plenty of room for your gear and a capable powertrain. These vehicles have it all.
Before you leave, pack up your Chevrolet with plenty of water. Most campsites have places where you can refill bottles, but it’s better to be safe and hydrated than sorry and thirsty. You’ll also want to make sure that you pack plenty of food and snacks. Some meals should be something you cook, but some should be accessible without fire, in case you can’t make it happen. Make sure your Chevy is also equipped with a first aid kit, just in case you or a neighbor needs it.
Once you’ve picked your camping spot and set up your tent, you can enjoy all of the outdoor activities that come along with the adventure. It may be tempting to keep everything in your Chevy when you’re not using it, but it’s important to instead hang your food up at night if you’re in an area with bears. Even if your supplies are locked away, a bear can still break your Chevrolet’s windows to get to the food, which is not what you want!
With these tips for car camping and precautions in mind, you’re set to plan your own getaway in your Chevy this spring or summer. Visit Dan Young GM to find your perfect car camping vehicle today!
