If you drive a small car or a sports coupe like the Dodge Challenger, road trips can be hard to execute—especially if you’re traveling with family. Sure, the Challenger provides exceptional driving fun, and you’ll love zooming across the country in it. But what about packing? Long-term comfort? Here are some tips for road trips in a coupe or small car.
First, understand that less is more, and that you don’t actually need to bring fifteen pairs of pants and a different shoe for every day of the trip. It can be tempting to take a “prepare for the worst” approach, but when you’re driving a coupe, you have to plan. Challengers have big spacious trunks, but you have to make room for a lot of stuff if you’re driving long-distance, so keep clothes to a minimum.
Utilize all the space you can in the car. If you’re traveling with just two other people, stick what you can in the backseat, and bring a cooler with drinks and snacks so you don’t get dehydrated. Keep essentials in reach like your kids’ favorite toys and a first aid kit.
Stop to walk around and switch drivers often to avoid driver fatigue and let everyone stretch their legs. In general, you want to make sure you have roadside assistance, have plenty of entertainment options for everyone, and use navigation services to avoid traffic jams and other problem spots.
