Spending the night under the stars is a wonderful way to get away from your day-to-day life – but you need the right supplies to enjoy the experience. From firewood and a tent to graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate, being prepared is important. That’s where having a solid camping car comes in handy. Here, we look at the Honda vehicles that will help you enjoy camping.
A good camping vehicle offers ample cargo space and seating for your friends and family, which is exactly what the Honda Ridgeline offers. This pickup truck can seat up to five passengers and has a dual-action tailgate that can swing open like a door or fold down, which will make loading your cargo easier. The Ridgeline also has an exclusive Lockable In-Bed Trunk® with a drain plug that can either store your gear or become an ice chest for your food and drinks. There’s even an available audio system inside the truck bed so you can listen to tunes while you’re around the fire without having to get out your old-school stereo.
If you’re looking for an everyday vehicle that can transform into your camping transportation, the Pilot is a solid choice. Its interior can seat up to eight passengers but can also be configured to allow you a maximum cargo capacity of 109 cubic feet.* The Pilot comes available with all-wheel drive on every trim level and even comes with aftermarket accessories like cargo roof rails so you can bring extra camping gear with you on the go.
A family-friendly nature comes together with convenience in the Honda Pilot. If you find yourself making a mess during your camping trip, clean-up is a breeze thanks to the HondaVAC®, which is an available built-in vacuum that can sweep up any dirt, leaves, or other camping grime that ends up in your Odyssey’s interior. This minivan has ample space for both passengers and cargo, making heading out on your next adventure easier.
