Therefore, it’s essential to handle your vehicles carefully and arm yourself with appropriate safety equipment. Here are a few pieces of equipment that you’ll be glad you brought to your next camping adventure.
Roadside Warning Lights
If you break down on the side of the road, you must have appropriate visibility equipment. Instead of roadside flares, which could become a fire hazard and are illegal in some states, LED road lights are a great way to alert passing vehicles of your presence. Many of these lights are also magnetic and can stick to your RV or be placed on the ground.
Once you arrive at the campground, it’s important to have safety triangles on any off-road vehicles. Visibility is significantly worse in wooded areas, and a safety triangle can help protect both you and the other riders around you.
A strong ⅛-inch aluminum triangle is sturdy enough to withstand outdoor terrain and easy enough to attach to the vehicle.
While a safety triangle will make your ATV noticeable on a flat surface at eye level, it’s low placement may make it difficult to see for people sitting high in an RV or if the ATV is parked at the bottom of a hill.
While regularly inspecting your RV is a great way to prevent tire problems, a tire gauge is an easy way to see if your tires have enough air.
There are plenty of relatively cheap digital tire gauges available that allow you to check your tire pressure in seconds.
If you’re spending your vacation days camping, the last thing you want to worry about is fixing broken items or dealing with an accident. Therefore, bring these items along to minimize accidents and allow you peace of mind on the road.
