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.

Outside has some great tips for taking your Outback, Forester, or Crosstrek on summer camping trips. Get over-door hooks you can buy at any big box store. By hanging them on the rails of your roof-rack you can dry out wet towels or bathing suits, after a hot-springs dip or a day on the river.

You can also use the hooks in the back for hanging small needed items, like keys and headlamps, so you are not searching in the dark when you have to pee at 3 A.M. And the little cutouts in the back near the hatchback door are great for stashing things you want to have access to during the night, like a water bottle, book, or hat. 

Your Subaru Forester, Outback or Crosstrek SUV is the perfect vehicle for social distancing. With Subaru’s standard all-wheel-drive, a few accessories and the right gear, you can stay away from everyone.
