Keep These Essential Travel Accessories in Your Meerkat Trailer

Travel First AidPeak travel season is almost upon us, which means you’ll probably be taking your Meerkat trailer out on the road more often in the coming months. Today we’ll consider a few essential travel accessories you should always keep with you on your next adventure:

Power Bank

There’s nothing worse than having your smartphone die just as you’re about to take a photo of a beautiful landscape. By keeping a portable power bank in your trailer, you can maintain your connection to the outside world no matter where your travels take you.

A First Aid Kit

It’s always good to be prepared for minor injuries and other little emergencies. Make sure you have a first aid kit stocked with essentials like bandages, aspirin and antiseptic wipes in your trailer at all times.

A Toolbox

It’s like first aid for your trailer. Keep a well-stocked toolbox handy with a hammer, a set of wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, an all-purpose lubricant, tape, extra fuses and a fuse puller. This way, you’ll be prepared for all sorts of mishaps that might happen during a camping trip.

Games

Bring enough games to keep you and your family occupied in the evening hours. Some of our favorites include Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble and Uno. Even a simple deck of playing cards can provide hours of entertainment during downtime on the road.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

In small spaces, it can be tough to carve out some quiet time. This is especially true when you’re trying to catch some quick shuteye at a busy rest stop. Bring a good set of noise-cancelling headphones to help you tune out the noise and relax.

A Fire Extinguisher

Fires can happen, and it’s important to make sure you’re prepared to put them out with a small fire extinguisher. It’s also a good idea to have a combination smoke/carbon monoxide detector on hand as well.

Money-Saving Tips for Your Next Road Trip

Summer is the perfect time to hit the road and explore, but any vacation can be a strain on your bottom line. Stay within you budget and still have tons of fun with these money-saving tips for your next road trip:

Save on Gas

You may already use apps like GasBuddy to find the cheapest gas nearby, but there are many other steps you can take to minimize your expenses at the pump as well. Pack light, follow the speed limit, make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended pressure and avoid aggressive maneuvers that burn up gas, like excessive braking or rapid acceleration.

Snack Smart

Those bags of chips and bottles of water at gas stations really start to add up after a few days on the road. Before you leave, buy economy-size bags of snacks like chips or trail mix and portion them into smaller bags. Bring reusable water bottles, too, and refill them whenever you’re near a faucet.

Skip the Fast Food

Believe it or not, drive-thrus are not the most budget-friendly option on the road. Save money by eating at mom-and-pop places instead, which will probably serve large-enough portions that you can bring leftovers with you in a cooler. Keep an eye out for early-bird specials in the early morning and late afternoon.

Bring Your Accommodations With You

With a Meerkat Trailer, you’ll never have to worry about booking a hotel. Just pull up to a campsite and relax! Best of all, these trailers are small enough to be towed with nearly any four-cylinder vehicle. Call (866) 977-7607 or contact us online to learn more about the Meerkat way of life today!

Unique Benefits of Small Travel Trailers

What if you could enjoy the comfort and luxury of an RV, but with a smaller footprint and a lower cost? With a small travel trailer, you can have all that and more. Here are just a few of the unique benefits of hitting the road with a small travel trailer:

Easy Towing

Most everyday vehicles, including minivans and SUVs, don’t have the capacity to tow a full-size RV. Small travel trailers, on the other hand, can be towed by just about any vehicle with a trailer hitch. What’s more, smaller trailers are much easier to maneuver, whether you’re stopping for gas or parking at your campsite.

Money Saving

In addition to being less expensive than full-size RVs, travel trailers also cost less money in gas to tow. While the cost of taking a long road trip in a big RV can add up fast, towing a travel trailer behind your car is typically far more cost-effective

Low Maintenance

Small travel trailers are much easier to maintain than full-size RVs. With fewer moving parts, they’re perfect for novice adventurers as well as those who prefer to keep things simple.

Cozy Atmosphere

On a family getaway or romantic trip, cozying up with the ones you love in a small trailer can be a truly special experience.

Your Choice of Campsites

Some campgrounds don’t allow larger RVs. Small travel trailers, however, don’t take up much more room than a tent, which allows travelers to choose from a broader range of campsites.

Now that you know more about the benefits of small travel trailers, it’s time to hit the road in a trailer of your own! Give us a call or contact us online to find your MeerKat trailer today!

Which MeerKat Model is Right for You?

MeerKat CampingAhh, camping. A chance to commune with nature; an opportunity to rejuvenate one’s inner spirit and free the mind; a valid excuse to consume an absurd number of s’mores. Whatever the reason may be, camping is a staple summer activity that has been enjoyed by most everyone for centuries.

It may, however, be fair to say that much of modern society has moved beyond the point of wanting to be one with the Earth by sleeping directly on the ground. It is human, after all, to crave comfort wherever we go. But there are so many options for camping accommodations these days that it can be a confusing world to navigate.

So…where do we start?

Well, if you’ve come to this page then you’ve already determined that MeerKat is the best place to go. Congratulations! But wait, there’s more than one MeerKat model to choose from?! Oh, no! Just when you thought things were getting easy.

Hey, hey—no need to fret, we’ve got you covered. Let us simplify things, and walk you through the features of each model, and how they differ, so we can figure out which Kat is the best fit for you!

The MeerKat

If you’re looking for basic convenience and comfort with a little more space and a few extra amenities, the MeerKat fits the bill. At 920lbs, it’s relatively light and easily maneuvered. You can even store it right in your garage! Tow it in with nearly any standard four-cylinder car, then just unhook it and push it into place by hand.

It’s large enough to stand up in, and comfortably fits two adults on a roller system bed. It comes equipped with a camp stove, icebox, sink, fan and a porta potty. The MeerKat also comes with plenty of storage room (so you don’t have to skimp on the marshmallows) in an overhead compartment, under the dining seats and even a small closet. It also has three opening windows with blinds, in case you don’t rise quite as early as the sun. The MeerKat is perfect for a small family looking for just enough space in a home away from home.

 The CampKat

We like to refer to the CampKat as the MeerKat’s little brother. If you’re looking for basic comfort and want to leave the rest up to nature, this is your guy. Just like his brother, the CampKat is easily stored, maneuvered and towed, especially because it has an overall smaller height and width. It also sleeps two adults and offers a galley area in the back (again we stress—s’mores storage).

Instead of windows it has two oversized doors with screens, so you can still hangout inside and feel that fresh summer breeze. Like the MeerKat, there’s interior lighting, cabinet space and a fan. Think of the CampKat as a comfy bed on wheels, with a little extra room for storage. While it doesn’t include quite as much equipment as the MeerKat, if you’re looking for a compact and easy setup to retreat to at the end of the night, then the CampKat has all you need.

Whether you need some extra room to play wit, or just a snug little home for when the nights get cold, MeerKat has you covered. Check out some photos of what we offer or build your own Kat to your specifications! To get started, just give us a call at our toll-free number today!
