Spring is almost here and that means the weather will be perfect for some outdoor activities. If you’re considering taking a few off-road trips, a hitch installation will be a great investment. Our professionals will make sure everything has a smooth fit and finish. Here are some top off-road accessories to bring on your next trip!
Planning on doing some off-road mountain biking? By installing a bike rack to your vehicle, you can bring your bike without packing it into the back seat. Whether you’re just going with a friend or the whole family, you can transport up to five bicycles on your vehicle. A hitch mounted bike rack will make it easy to load and unload your bikes without any hassle. This will give you more space for the other items you’ll need for your off-roading adventure!
There are some great camping locations across the U.S. that can only be accessed via off-roading. If you’re planning on traveling to one of these spots, a cargo carrier is just what you’ll need. Depending on the activity and how many people plan on participating, you may need extra space to fit all of your adventure-ready gear. Attaching a roof rack or a carpod carrier will double your cargo–hauling capacity. Determining the amount of gear you need for your adventure will help you decide which cargo carrier will best suit your vehicle.
With all this extra cargo space, we want to make sure that you’ll be able to properly reach and secure your items. By installing a hitch step, you’ll have easy access to your truck bed or roof rack. Your rear bumper will also be protected from collisions, scratches, and dents during your off-roading trip. If you are looking for easy access from the side of your vehicle, a tire step is beneficial. To learn more about the installation process of a hitch step, check out this step by step guide.
Before you hit the trails, you need to make sure your belongings are secure. There will be bumps and turns on your off-roading adventure, so you want to make sure your equipment is safe. There are different types of cargo management tools that are great for off-roading:
- Cargo net: A sure way to keep your items in place especially if they’re odd or oddly shaped. They’re easy to install and the hooks are adjustable.
- Ratchet Straps: Great for extremely heavy cargo so it does not shift or move during your off-roading adventure. Ancra Cargo carries different varieties so you can choose the right straps for your equipment.
- Stratchits: These durable straps are the ultimate tie down with a stretchy, lightweight, and durable performance. Front Runner offers a few choices that will keep your rack clean and neatly stows away excess strap length.
With these cargo management tools, your valuable possessions will be kept safe so you can have a carefree off-roading excursion!
