4 . FOOD PREP PAYS OFF
Minimise your storage by getting rid of bulky packaging ! Cryovacing meat and prepping in ziplock bags will increase space in your fridge and allow you to pack food for extended trips . The Dometic CFX3 Portable Fridge / Freezer featured in all of the Patriot Camper trailers will keep your food fresh for longer !
5 . CHARGE UP !
All Patriot Campers are fitted with battery management systems that will allow you to manage and distribute power over your entire trip ' s length so you ’ re always aware when it ’ s time to charge up . A portable solar panel is a great way to keep the batteries topped up while off-grid .
6 . STICK TO THE SHADE
Don ’ t underestimate the shade ! While hats and sunscreen sure protect from the sun , you ’ ll need a basecamp for eating and relaxing during the day . Our camper trailers are fitted with awnings which provide 270 ° of coverage at the rear and 180 ° coverage at the front . In addition , the awnings have a UPF 50 + rating , which provide a superior throw of shade . Don ’ t forget your sunscreen and lip balm !
