That’s why Trail Shop and Subaru of Moncton have teamed up to bring you the ultimate road trip checklist, blending outdoor savvy with vehicle expertise. Let’s gear up for the open road!


Before You Set Off:

1. Vehicle Prep: Check your Subaru for an oil change, ensure all fluids are topped up, and inspect your tires for pressure and tread. Remember, proper vehicle maintenance is the start of a safe journey.

2. Navigation and Safety: Load your route on the GPS and inform someone about your travel plans. Pack emergency essentials like a full-size spare tire, jumper cables, and a basic toolkit. For added safety, include flares or an emergency triangle.

On the Road:

1. Comfort and Convenience: Keep your road trip enjoyable with a solid playlist, snacks, and a cozy setup for coffee breaks. Consider packing a portable hammock and a good book for those serene roadside stops.

2. Connectivity and Fun: Even in off-grid areas, stay connected with a portable charger and offline maps. Don’t forget to download some audiobooks or podcasts for entertainment.


Campsite Essentials:

1. Overnight Gear: If you plan to camp, a reliable tent, sleeping bags, and portable camp furniture are must-haves. Trail Shop recommends lightweight and durable gear that makes setting up camp a breeze.

2. Camp Kitchen: Bring along a portable stove, water purification systems, and all your cooking essentials. A collapsible sink and biodegradable soap will help keep your campsite clean and eco-friendly.

Subaru-Specific Tips:

1. Subaru Preparedness: Take advantage of your Subaru’s cargo space with extra storage solutions like roof racks and cargo organizers from THULE. Perfect for keeping your outdoor gear accessible and organized.

2. Road Safety: Subaru vehicles are equipped with features that enhance road safety, such as all-wheel drive for better traction and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology for added peace of mind on unfamiliar roads.
