No matter where you plan to drive your conversion van, you want to make sure that you are ready for your road trip. Some things to take with may seem obvious, like snacks, but people are likely to forget about other important items to bring. Although there are dozens of things you should check off your list before hitting the road on your next trip, make sure to at least have the following four items, as they are the most important.
It should be a given that when you go on a road trip you need to have a map of some sort with you, but in this day and age, the definition of a map can vary. You may feel fine using the map application on your smartphone, but you don’t want to rely on just that. If you feel comfortable navigating with your smartphone or GPS unit, that is fine, but don’t forget to pack physical maps, as well. This way, if your conversion van breaks down and your devices become uncharged, you can still find your way around.
Entertainment is always a must for any road trip, particularly for younger passengers. The Sherry conversion van has you covered with 32″ Vizio HDTV, LG Blu-ray/DVD Player, Premium Pioneer DEH-X8700BS Stereo, Wireless Headphonesw/ Storage Cases, and 120V Game Power Supply. If you are driving with young children, pack other activities for them, such as books, magnetic travel games, and their favorite toys. Passengers of all ages will enjoy entertainment via music, books, audiobooks, and movies if you have a portable DVD player or your vehicle has one built in. You can even bring puzzle books, like word searches or Sudoku.
Snacks and Drinks
Snacks and drinks are a must for any road trip. This will ensure that you don’t have to stop the car every time someone gets hungry, which can be a big challenge on certain stretches of road. Snacks can also help the driver stay alert. Drinks are particularly important, because you want to stay hydrated during the trip. Just don’t drink so much that you have to constantly make stops.
No matter how long your road trip is or how many people are involved, be sure to pack some basic emergency supplies. You can make it easy by opting for a pre-packaged emergency first aid kit designed for conversion vans or create your own with aspirin, bandages, disinfectant, and similar items. Bring emergency supplies for your car as well as you; you don’t want to be stranded with a breakdown. If you have roadside assistance, be sure to have the information with you. Savvy drivers will also have jumper cables, a spare tire kit, and maybe even some flares.
