Checklist for Camping

SUBARU VEHICLES AND ACCESSORIES HELP ENSURE YOUR CONTINUED SAFETY AND ENHANCED CONVENIENCE FOR A TRIP TO THE MOUNTAINS, LAKE, WOODS, OR ANYWHERE ELSE YOU CAN IMAGINE. A CAMPING TRIP IS A GREAT WAY TO ESCAPE THE DAILY GRIND AND ENJOY THE OUTDOORS. HERE’S A CHECKLIST OF ACCESSORIES TO HELP MAKE YOUR CAMPING EXPERIENCE A GREAT ONE!

First Aid Kit

As any experienced traveler will tell you, a first aid kit should always be among the items you pack.

 SAFETY

Since you can never be completely sure of what you’ll face in the wild, it’s best to prepare for a variety of scenarios ahead of time.

Before embarking on any outdoor adventure, be sure your vehicle is stocked with a first aid kit as well as other basic survival tools. As any experienced traveler will tell you, a first aid kit should always be among the items you pack. It will enable you to respond quickly to medical issues. The Subaru Severe Weather Companion provides first aid essentials along with emergency tools inside a convenient nylon carrying case.

In the unfortunate event of a roadside emergency, the companion’s safety light stick will help alert other drivers to your situation. Also, you may have need for the kit’s emergency survival blanket and collapsible shovel. That exciting back trail you’re looking for late at night will be a lot easier to find with the kit’s flashlight in your hands, and, of course, it will help you find your way around camp in the evening and early morning.

If you find yourself in unexplored territory, the kit’s water packets will prove invaluable when there’s no clean water source in sight.

To help keep cabin occupants safe, Genuine Subaru Accessory Dog Guard/Compartment Separators are available for Outback, Forester, and Tribeca. They help prevent pets and cargo from flying forward and injuring seated occupants in sudden stops.

 CONVENIENCE

Beyond safety, your second priority is to have fun out there. That’s why Genuine Subaru Accessories® include a variety of carriers for your vehicle.

Cargo Organizer

Are you planning a little mountain biking, cycling, or freestyle BMXing on your next trip? Roof- and tow-hitch-mounted bike carriers are easily assembled and attached to your Subaru. (Genuine Subaru Accessory hitches for your Subaru are available from your dealer, too.)

Don’t stop at just biking, though. Head for the river, lake, or mountain with your kayak, skis, or snowboard on an appropriate roof carrier. Be sure to follow the installation instructions and use the included tools when applicable.

If it’s a more laid-back and relaxing outdoors trip you’re planning, attach the cargo box or basket to your roof to conveniently and securely store your luggage and tent. That provides more interior space for you and your passengers so you can ride more comfortably.

Let’s face it. You need to be prepared both for your camping trips and, no less important, your return to the daily routine. Subaru has accessories to make that as convenient as possible, too. The cargo organizer will make transporting your gear and grocery bags a snap and leaves plenty of room for other supplies. It fits into every model from Impreza to Tribeca, and it keeps contents safe and organized whether you’re headed to a river for kayaking or home from the supermarket. When it isn’t needed, the organizer collapses for storage.

 PROTECTION

Other Genuine Subaru Accessories help protect the vehicle and its occupants. Shield your vehicle’s carpeting from sand, dirt, and moisture with All-Weather Floor Mats. An Anti-Slip Mat is available for the cargo area in the Outback, and a Trunk Tray is available for Impreza 5-door models. These help maintain a clean cargo floor.

LIST COMPLETE?

If you’ve checked off everything listed above that applies to you and to your vehicle, you’re going to be one happy camper!
