SUMMER CAMPING MUST HAVES

Written by HITCHWEB CANADA Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Summer is just around the corner and with many Pandemic restrictions in place, Canadians are likely staying local again this year. But local doesn't mean boring and living in Canada means countless mountains, lakes and forests to explore.
Can't get a campsite? No problem! The term "bush camping" doesn't mean what it use to with countless products to take you from doing your business in the dirt and washing off in the freezing lake - to having a private bathroom and shower area without towing a camper. 

This blog post will show you Hitchweb's recommended must-haves to camp easy this summer so you can grab and go, start that #adventureonwheels and be nowhere bound for a day or two.

Let's start with the basics and work our way up to the luxurious!

2) A PORTABLE COOLER

A reliable cooler is a must have...

Written by HITCHWEB CANADA Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Spring break is here and we're stuck at home, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with the kids!

Here are 5 of Hitchweb's tried and true pandemic friendly activities for your family to plan over the next 2 weeks:

1) FIND A LOCAL TRAIL

One of the amazing things about living in Canada is that you have countless local trails to wander. If you aren't familiar with any in your area a quick Google search will do the trick! 

2) GO FOR A BIKE RIDE

Sounds cliché right? A family bike riding together.. but for such a popular family activity, how often do you find yourself actually doing it?! If you don't have a bike you can likely borrow from a friend or family member or check out online marketplaces! Chances are you will find one for cheap - or even better - FREE! 
If you want to take the bikes on your vehicle, we can help you with that with our huge selection of BIKE CARRIERS

3) HEAD TO A LAKE OR POND AND FEED THE...


Is My Vehicle Factory Wired

Written by hitchweb Team Tuesday, March 2, 2021

There are 2 common ways to determine whether or not your vehicle is factory wired.

1. If you purchased your vehicle with a trailer hitch on it, odds are you will have wiring also. The wiring should be hanging right next to the trailer hitch.

2. Check your owners manual. If your vehicle does not have a trailer hitch but you arent sure if there is factory wiring, your owners manual will tell you.

Need a wiring kit for your vehicle? Use our trailer hitch search to look up your vehicle and select your vehicle make and model, then select trailer wiring before selecting the year of your vehicle.
