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.


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.
