Ideas to Maximise the Space in Your 4×4

Whether you are heading away for a weekend or couple of weeks, out bush or simply for a relaxing holiday, the space in your 4WD is paramount. And how you use the available space will determine what you can take with you and what you must leave behind.

Let’s be honest though, we don’t want to leave any equipment behind, particularly when it comes to the little luxuries!

Here are a few ideas on how you can maximise the space in your 4×4 and take all of your equipment with you, every time.

Roof Racks

One of the simplest ways to find extra space is to get all your light weight yet bulky equipment out of the car and up top. Roof Racks can be quite cost effective and can also provide some more complex solutions depending on the equipment that you are travelling with. Using tie downs and ratchet straps will work just fine for tents, swags and even bikes or kayaks. There are plenty of hard case options too, if you need to get some loose items up there. Have a chat with your 4×4 specialist who can provide the right roof rack solution for your needs.

Drawer Systems

A cleverly laid out drawer system will provide space to store away your loose items, while leaving plenty of room for your bulkier items. But storing away the smaller things, you will also find you have less breakages meaning you will be saving money by not having to replace bits and pieces after every trip. Particularly on some the more difficult tracks, keeping things in place becomes even more important.

We have a range of drawer solutions for practically every need, so make sure you have a chat with us and let us know what you need. We can sort out the rest.

Packing Smart

One of the best ways to maximise your space but tends to be either left out completely or last minute, is to pack smart. Plan out your full trip and try to make your everyday items easy to get to, with some of the equipment you may only need once twice packed in a little deeper. Nobody finds it fun to somehow run out of room at the end of trip.

It may seem like a no-brainer, but a well thought plan will save you plenty of packing headaches.
