We all think of Utes as the perfect work accessory, but the truth is that they’re great for much more than simply helping you to get the most of your professional time. The utility vehicle, or Ute, as we know it today, was first invented in 1932, and since then, it’s been changing the way we approach the roads of Australia.
Many tradesmen and people who run fleets across Australia rely on Utes to help them get their job done well. But what do you need to do to get the most out of your Ute when you’re thinking of using it for personal reasons? After all, your utility vehicle can be just as effective at hauling you and your family across the country, as it is at getting you from A to B during your work day.
Utes are some of the most versatile vehicles on the market. Today, we’re going to tell you how you can take yours with you on an incredible camping experience.
If you’re thinking of enjoying your very own four-wheel driving camping trip, then the first thing you’ll need to think about is whether you could benefit from using from 4WD accessories such as a roof rack, or extra lighting to ensure your vehicle can be seen in the dark.
One of the best Ute upgrades you can get for the purpose of business and pleasure alike is a Ute canopy. Canopies for Utes come in a range of different styles and qualities, and can be adjusted to suit the needs of your specific vehicle. You can even use your canopy as a place to roll out a tent at night if you don’t want to have to worry about pitching a tent. Though that might not seem like the most comfortable idea for you – it could be a great way to stay out of the bad weather if your forecast predictions don’t work out.
Of course, canopies for Utes can also be used to help protect the gear that you’re carrying on your camping trip. This will make sure that you don’t end up with bottles that have holes in them, or sleeping bags that are covered in dirt and debris.
If you typically use your Ute for business purposes, then you might have installed a service body, complete with shelving and storage solutions to make your work life a little easier. This could be great for people who need a little more help with keeping their gear organised for a camping trip too. After all, if you know exactly where all your essentials are, you shouldn’t have to worry about grabbing a flashlight and looking for something in the case of an emergency.
Most of the storage and organisation solutions that we offer here at CVS are incredibly light-weight too, which means that you won’t have to worry about your Ute being weighed down by too much extra gear.
Finally, remember that safety comes first when it comes to camping with your Ute. Make sure that you’re equipped with plenty of emergency items, such as spare tyres, extra water, and even jumper cables just in case something goes wrong.
If you already have your canopies for Utes installed, you can always think about installing additional fit outs such as LED lights and rear camera solutions that make parking and navigating a little easier when you’re travelling through unknown roads. Your canopy or service body will also help to ensure that you don’t get hit in the back of head by flying equipment or debris during your drive!
