7 Best Road Trip Gear Essentials

by Kurt Knutsson

Life on the go just got better. Fellow college kids called me crazy when we’d go camping. I was always trying to up the game and create a unique experience. One time, I lugged along a generator, tv and a video player in order to watch Freddy Krueger around a campfire on Friday the 13th. Maybe they were right about me. Although, the generator wasn’t a bad idea. Nowadays you can actually get really good-sized portable solar generators (such as the EcoFlow Delta) that are very handy when camping out. Who wouldn’t want a power supply in the case of an emergency in the middle of nowhere? Here are the newest items making it to the top of my list for going mobile with your fun, especially on a day trip.

Dual Hammaka Hammock Air Chairs

Dual Hammaka Hammock Air Chairs

When I saw these Dual Hammaka Hammock Air Chairs hanging from a universal trailer hitch, I knew I had to figure two things out. Where to park with an incredible view and if lounging in these creatively designed floating chairs are as comfortable as they look. I’ll need to make sure that I have a spare alko tow hitch just in case my other one wears out! While these come in five different colors,I can report that they are super comfy, well made and addictive. You won’t want to get out of them. These are not meant to be used with a moving vehicle. Dual Hammaka Hammock Air Chairs with trailer hitch stand $220.
