How to pack your car for a summer road trip

  1. 1. How to pack your car for a summer getaway Toyota of Orlando
  2. 2. Toyota of Orlando shares car packing tips Thinking of getting away for the summer? Why not enjoy the open road instead of the open sky when you travel? A road trip is always an adventure, but your car is only so big and packing it up can sometimes feel like a really bad game of Tetris. Toyota of Orlando is here to help you maximize space and save time car packing before you head out on your next trip.
  3. 3. Tip #1: Heavy and large items go on the bottom • Large and heavy items should always go on the bottom of your cargo area when car packing to prevent them from crushing other items. Plus, this will help keep your Orlando vehicle well balanced and keep your field of view clear. Keeping items in your car rather than on roof racks will decrease your chances of tipping over when making sharp turns.
  4. 4. Tip #2: Keep your field of view clear • Stacking luggage to maximize space seems like a great idea, but when you can’t see out the rear of your vehicle then you could run into a problem. Not only could you get into trouble for obstructing your view, but by blocking your rear windshield from car packing you’re unable to see crucial blind spots while driving and could result in a collision.
  5. 5. Tip #3: Pack separate bags • It may seem a little counter productive to efficient car packing by using more luggage, but this helps categorize your belongings for easy access while driving around Orlando. Use small bags and pack them with different groups of items like road essentials (snacks, entertainment, and water), another as an overnight bag in case you stay in a hotel, a bag for your pets’ needs, and whatever else you might need while on the road.
  6. 6. Tip #4: Towing cargo? Check the specs • If you’re planning on using your roof racks or towing hitch to carry additional cargo in addition to your car packing, check your Orlando Toyota’s specifications. Some vehicles can’t handle the additional weight and it may cause maintenance issues to arise or put a dent in your fuel efficiency. Consult your owner’s manual for information on your Toyota’s towing capacity or ask one of our Orlando auto sales specialists.
