Around the Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport Beach areas, there’s plenty of exciting getaways to be had. Whether you prefer camping, a day at the beach, or a mountain hike, Volkswagen has plenty of accessories to make getting there easier.

As you’re planning your next road trip, consider this list of accessories put together by our team at Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore of Irvine. Here, you’ll find everything you need to make your next adventure a great one.

Volkswagen Accessory Racks

No matter how big your car is, some gear just isn’t going to fit inside. For those larger pieces, you may want to have a rack installed on your vehicle. At Volkswagen, you can find several different kinds, including:

  • Bike racks
  • Snowboard and ski attachments
  • Kayak and surfboard holders

From the Golf to the Touareg, a rack is an excellent way to carry those big pieces of equipment. Have your rack properly installed by a Volkswagen dealer before using.

VW Cargo Accessories

If you’re driving a smaller Volkswagen model, not all your cargo may fit comfortably inside the vehicle. In that case, a rooftop cargo box attachment is an excellent solution. Store all your luggage overhead, and you’ll have plenty of room inside your car to stretch out.

You may also want to consider Snakey hangers, which attach to the front seat headrests. From here, you can hang purses, backpacks, or clothes.

To keep things clean and organized in your trunk, Volkswagen offers several different liners, many of which come with cargo blocks. Using these blocks, you can easily contain and separate your items. Available luggage nets will also ensure that your cargo is secure throughout your entire trip.

Towing Accessories for Your Volkswagen

The bigger the road trip, the bigger the haul. If you’re striking out on a camping trip, for instance, you may need to tow a camper. To do so, you’ll need the proper equipment, and Volkswagen has you covered.

Several trailer hitches are available, with or without the ball/mount. Check your owner’s manual to determine which size is appropriate for your model.

Trailer brakes and lighting are essential to safe towing. If you’ve purchased these but don’t know how to hook them up, Volkswagen has an easy-to-use electric installation kit. Contact your dealership for installation.

Safety Accessories

Road trips should be fun, period. But as we all know, life is full of surprises, and not all of them are great. In case of an emergency, make sure your Volkswagen is outfitted with the right equipment:

  • A first aid kit, in case you have any accidents while on your latest adventure.
  • The Volkswagen Roadside Assistance kit, if you’re having car troubles.
  • The Mini Cigarette Lighter/Flashlight, so you’re never stranded in the dark.

Remember, a bit of precaution is only going to make your trips better.
