When is a vehicle more than just a vehicle? When you can do more than just drive it! That is particularly true for those who drive pickup trucks. It is way more than just something to get you from point A to point B, because of the bed. You can do so much with your pickup truck’s bed, including:
#1 Bring an air mattress and go camping.
South Georgia has some great campsites. If you want to really enjoy yourself out in nature, but don’t necessarily want to sleep on the ground- your pickup truck offers a fantastic solution. Bring along an air mattress (and pump!) plus some sheets and pillows, and you’ve got yourself the perfect bed. You’ll be enjoying the fresh air, yet be off the dirt and bugs while you slumber.
#2 Pack a meal and have a picnic.
The bed is also a great spot to have a picnic, without the need for a blanket or table. Pack along your favorite foods, plus drinks of course. You can make it a romantic moonlit meal for two, a fun Saturday activity for the whole family, or even a solo meal to enjoy the sights and sounds of the great outdoors.
#3 Tailgate your favorite football team.
It’s finally fall and you know what that means- football season! A pickup truck is absolutely essential to really enjoy a home football game. Get there early for a good parking spot, then bring out the food, drinks, and games. You can spend the entire day there, and you don’t even actually need tickets for the game to have a great time!
#4 Hit some garage sales and flea markets.
Don’t forget that the bed is intended to haul stuff. Put it to good use! Spend your morning off work driving around the area and hitting the best garage sales, flea markets, auctions, and tent sales. With your large bed, you can fit anything you find right in the back of your truck and bring it home.
You can enjoy any of these activities in the bed of a Chevy Colorado, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, or GMC Canyon. Thankfully for those in the Claxton, GA, all of these vehicles, and more, can be seen at Durrence Layne Chevy! We have brand new Chevrolet and GMC trucks, as well as quality used vehicles of many makes and models. Stop by our showroom, located right off US-280 W, and look around!
