Need To Run Away? How To Easily Turn Your Subaru Into A Campsite
The Subaru Forester, Outback and Crosstrek are known for their “go-anywhere attitude, and with standard all-wheel-drive, they make the best vehicles to get you away from civilization. With all that’s going on with the Coronavirus, you may want to get away from the city for a while. Subaru vehicles are great for camping and you don’t even need a tent or buy a camping trailer. Here is how to do it easily with the gear you may already own, and a couple of other cool accessories.
If you don’t have the money right now to invest in a tent, newer Subaru Forester, Outback, and Crosstrek vehicles are big enough to throw a sleeping bag down and two people can sleep comfortably in the back. If you get a bike roof rack carrier, you can mount the mountain bikes on top and you are ready for the trail this spring.
You can easily turn your Subaru into a campsite
We found a company that makes cool gear for your Subaru that helps you turn your vehicle into a comfortable and convenient sleeping spot within minutes. The company is Luno Life and their signature product is an air mattress that is made specifically for your Subaru Forester, Outback, or Crosstrek.
The mattress fits perfectly behind the front seats when the back seats folded flat. They are made of durable Oxford Nylon fabric and you can take your furry friends with you on the camping trip as they are pet-friendly for easy cleanup. The mattress costs $224.99.
Get away from the madness
The kit includes a full-sized air mattress, two Base Extenders, a 12V air pump for your vehicle, a repair patch, and a carrying case for the system, Luna Life says the mattress comfortably sleeps two people up to 6’3” tall.
We also found a helpful video from Nhan Pham showing how to make black-out shades for the windows of your Subaru to finish it out to make it a cozy, warm, and secure car camping setup. Check out the video below.
