Start with DECKED truck and van drawer storage systems and these other clever accessories to make your vehicle the ultimate quick escape pod for the weekend warrior.
When you punch the clock at 5 o'clock on a Friday and want to get out of town, the last thing you want to do is have to run home and figure out how to get all of your gear, tents, bags, food, cooking supplies, and everything else organized and ready to go.
Here are four easy ways to get the most out of your vehicle when it comes time to escape.
DECKED Storage System
Start by putting a DECKED cargo storage system in your truck. Their full bed-length drawer system lets you store and organize all of your camping essentials in secure, weatherproof drawers. So now you've left the office to get the family and everything is already packed and ready to go!
The best part about DECKED is you still have full use of your truck or van's cargo area thanks to a 2000-pound payload that the product can carry on its surface. Made in the USA out of recycled materials, this product is light in weight but heavy in durability, and eliminates the need to crawl into the back of your truck.
Next, you'll want a cargo rack, and there is nothing like the one from Leitner Designs. Leitner makes a full range of cargo racks that attach easily to the bedrails and bed of your truck and offer attachable cubby and water/fuel carrying tanks as accessories to give you even more storage. This clever design gives you a platform for the next essential thing to make your weekend bug-out easier: a roof top tent.
Truck or Car Tent
Cascadia Vehicle Tents are a perfect way to avoid having to sleep on the ground and deal with everyone fighting over how to set the tent up once you get to camp. One of the leading brands in the rapidly growing rooftop tent category, you can choose from a variety of different styles and options which offer accommodations from two-person models all the way up to four or more. Think of it as a pop up RV on the roof rack of your truck!
Finally, DECKED has a full line of accessories for your drawer system to make organizing and accessing all of your camping stuff easier and better. Their D-Box modular storage toolbox is designed to nest perfectly in their drawers allowing you to have one for the cookware, one for your dry goods, and another for fishing stuff, campfire supplies, or even a fireworks display if it's the 4th of July! DECKED also offers items like their drawer locks for an added level of security, Core Trax cargo tie downs for keeping your cooler and camp chairs from flying around, and T-Tracks if you are the kind of campers who like to take bikes, boats, paddle boards and the like on your weekend outing.
Starting with DECKED truck and van storage and organization systems, you can easily build up your ultimate weekend get out of town rig. That way, you can escape for the weekend with everything you need easily accessible and organized, meaning you can spend more time playing and less time fussing about.
