If there’s one thing you can say about small trailer enthusiasts, it’s that we tend to be a resourceful bunch. There’s a special feeling of self-sufficiency that comes with traveling light and keeping all the items you need to live in just one vehicle with trailer in tow. When you first start trekking around the country with your trailer, however, it can be easy to overlook a few very handy travel accessories. Today, we’ll look at those often forgotten items that should have a place in everyone’s trailer.
These can be enormously helpful if you need to get up and fix something in the middle of the night. A headlamp will allow you to get a clear view at what you’re looking at while leaving your hands free to work. They can also be great courtesy items it you like to stay up reading in your trailer while your travel partner sleeps.
A Pair of Earplugs
Part of life on the road is that you never know where you might hang your hat tomorrow. A pair of earplugs is a nice piece of insurance in case you spend the night in a noisy area. After all, there’s nothing more unpleasant than having to hit the road bright and early after a sleepless night.
A Small Toolbox
This is something you should always have in your car, whether or not you’re towing a trailer. Look for one designed specifically for automotive applications with tools such as fuse pullers, hex wrenches, and an SAE socket set. Your local automotive supply store should have just what you’re looking for.
The last thing you want is to get cooped up on a cross-country trip. A few small folding chairs will allow you to kick back and enjoy the scenery once you reach your destination. You can find ones designed for camping with especially small profiles that you can easily tuck away in a corner.
