3 ways to travel in your truck this spring

(BPT) – As the sun starts to shine a little brighter in many parts of the country, people are itching to travel and get outside. Whether it is to the campground down the road or a trip across the country, it is important to have a vehicle outfitted for all your travel needs.

Trucks are the perfect way to get all your gear to the great outdoors for warm weather adventures. A well-equipped truck can handle all of the biggest and best toys from kayaks, paddle boards, camping equipment, road and dirt bikes, and fishing gear. With that said, here are the top 3 spring travel and accessory recommendations for you and your truck.

1. Go camping with an Extang Trifecta E-Series Tonneau Cover
Once you purchase all the equipment, camping can be an affordable way to travel and see some of the most breathtaking places the U.S. has to offer. Having a truck to drive to your site will allow you to easily store your tent, luggage, food, folding chairs, sleeping bags and all your other outdoor necessities.

The Extang Trifecta E-Series Tonneau Cover is the perfect truck accessory to keep your items safe and secure, while protecting them from all the elements, which is important for springtime storms. This truck bed cover is installed using a combination of hand-tightened and spring-loaded clamps which do not require tools to attach to most trucks on the market.

You can safely drive with the cover open or closed which allows for flexibility depending on the items you are traveling with. Additionally, if you need to venture off-road, you will not have to worry about items flying out of the truck bed.

2. Install the AVS Aeroskin LightShield PRO before your next fishing trip
Spring is the best season to go fishing because it is the time of year when fish are most active, and fishing at dawn or dusk is recommended for the best bites. A great product to add to your truck for traveling to your favorite fishing spot is the AVS Aeroskin LightShield PRO.

This sleek, new product combines a proven hood deflector design with cutting-edge LED lighting technology. It not only protects your hood and lights your way in early morning or late evening, but it also serves as a bug shield. Since a lot of bugs live around the best fishing holes, this will be a huge perk.

Nobody likes trying to wash off bug bits from their car after a day on the water. This accessory is bound to keep you safe with its amber LED lights that convert from a running lamp to a display for both turn signals and hazard functions. There is also an LED sequence when your vehicle is locked or unlocked which can help you find your truck if you venture too far down the river bend.

3. Take a hike with Husky Liners
Hiking is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors while getting some exercise. Chances are you can pack up the truck and easily find trails to explore close by for a fun day trip, or you can plan an off-road full hiking experience by heading to one of the state or national parks.

The temperatures during spring make it the optimal time to hike. Hiking in cooler weather is much more enjoyable than sweating and trying to stay hydrated in the summer heat or trying to avoid cold fall and winter weather. The downside is all the dirt and mud that accumulates on shoes and boots. Keep your truck clean by installing some Husky Liners WeatherBeater Floor Liners.

These liners are precision fit for your vehicle and snap in place to ensure they stay put. They are made from an elastomeric material, called DuraGrip, so the mat provides durable all-weather protection against mud-soaked hiking boots and sand-filled running shoes. This way, you can enjoy the hike without the worry of messing up your truck.

These are just a few ways to take advantage of the spring weather by getting your truck on the open road and out into the real. For everything you need to outfit your truck and turn it into the ultimate outdoor vehicle, visit RealTruck.com.
