Ah, Memorial Day, that much-anticipated, unofficial kick-off to summer. Visions of beach barbecues, family reunions, epic camping trips, challenging hikes, and watersports galore occupy the minds of us all. After sorting through last season’s supplies, though, it’s clear that some items just aren’t going to cut it this season. Especially our car camping gear.

Car camping is all the rage lately and though it may seem like you need to spend thousands to get into it, it actually isn't too hard to get the right gear at a reasonable price to make car camping a reality. And Memorial Day sales are the perfect chance to score all the electronics, gadgets, and outdoor/camping gear that can make every road trip an adventure and not break your bank.

Ready to grab some gear and hit the road? 

In car camping, space is tight. Traveling lightly is kinda the whole point, right? So you need to make the most of the tools and devices you can carry. This 3-socket splitter plugs into the 12v cigarette lighter in your car, truck, or RV, and voila! Turns it into three power sources. Now you can power generators, air pumps, devices, lights — whatever your car camping needs require, now you’ve got the versatility to stay powered up and connected on the road. Not bad for about ten bucks.
