Family car trips can be a lot of fun as long as you're not squeezed in by excess luggage for hours on end. Increasing your cargo space can help you to have a good time and return home with happy memories instead of bruises from where that suitcase handle was digging into your side. With a few adjustments and some canvas tarps, you might have the best vacation of your life.
Add Racks:The right roof racks and hitch racks can add a lot of storage space to your car. The standard cross bar rack is a good start, but if you have more than one or two suitcases you might want to consider replacing it with a basket rack that can hold even more. While it may not be suitable for more fragile and valuable items, it's a good solution for most things, especially if you wrap your luggage in a canvas tarp for more protection. Tarps can also help to safeguard anything on your hitch racks, particularly on the underside that's exposed to debris thrown from your tires.
Pack Your Bags:Your suitcase looks big until you put something big or awkwardly shaped into it. Then, you can barely fit your socks. Take those space-hogging items out, and cover them with a tarp so you can use your luggage more efficiently.
Check your Trunk:With a little padding from your canvas tarps you can take full advantage of your car trunk. Use your tarp as an extra layer around luggage or around individual items. Either way, you'll be able to make more room in the interior for yourself and your family.
Of course, any extra weight can lower your gas mileage. As useful as tarps are, you're probably better off leaving anything home that you can do without.
