Wouldn’t it be great to clock out on Friday, jump in your truck, and just hit the road? Whether you prefer a spur of the moment adventure, or the anticipation of planning a getaway, there’s a lot to keep in mind. If you keep the essentials packed in your truck (link to previous blog of what to keep in your truck), you’ll be a step ahead. But if you heart is set on the perfect truck roadtrip, consider the following.
Packing the Roadtrip Basics
It may seem obvious to mention packing a credit card, driver’s license, registration, insurance, and park pass, but let this be your reminder to make sure they’re up to date. Can’t hurt to double check that your phone cord is still there (and working) too.
Plus, anytime you leave home, it’s a pretty good idea to bring the 10 Essentials. But with those basics accounted for, you’ll need to decide what type of truck roadtrip makes you salivate.
Do you want to bring a set of kayaks and relax on the lake or check out a remote mountain bike trail? Maybe you can sneak in a first ascent, or find a hike so remote your email inbox will never find you.

The more adventurous you are, the more you’ll need to prepare. With a Renegade Cover, you’re off to a strong start.

So throw in your clothes, toiletries, and favorite pillow. Pack toilet paper and a trowel. Bring your favorite foods in your new Costco cooler. It will all be safe under your Renegade Cover, whether the threat is man, animal, or nature.
Renegade to the Roadtrip Rescue
If you really want to be prepared, it may be time to add a Riptide pressurized water system to your setup. After all, having water around is never a bad idea; it’s the first step to a solar-powered shower, spraying off muddy boots, and cooking ramen noodles.
The RipTide is the best pressurized water spray system. Imagine you will never have dirty hands or feet while in the elements. The RipTide has many uses including roadside shower, hand washing station, pet washing, wash sandy feet, or muddy boots. It’s made in the USA and is made to last. The RipTide can be mounted to a truck, car, side by side, or kept portable. To operate simply fill the tank with water and pressurize up to 120 psi and the RipTide is ready to use. Adjustable pressure makes it safe for cleaning kids or pets. Featuring a simple design, the RipTide is solar heated. RipTide is offered in 3 sizes. S1 Mobile (1.4 gallons) S2 (1.6 gallons) and the RipTide S3(2.2 gallons) Because of the high pressurize capacity it requires less water to be more effective than more other roadside showers. This creates a long spraying unit that requires lighter water weight. The RipTide is backed by a limited one year warranty.
With the strongest and most versatile truck bed cover on the market, your roadtrip is going to be history in the making. So download some good music and podcasts, throw in a deck of cards, and hit the road.
