Must-Have Accessories for a Romantic Getaway

BY MICHAEL D.

There have been too many bad Country songs written about a night under the stars with your special someone, but that’s no reason to spend another date night indoors. If the four walls of your apartment or the candlelight of a pricy restaurant have lost their appeal, we have just the products for you to reignite the fire — maybe even around a campfire. And don’t worry. If you don’t exactly feel like roughing it, these high-quality items will make it feel like you’ve hardly left home.

AIR MATTRESSES

Forget padding the inside of your truck bed with as many extra pillows as you can find. Don’t rely on the meager comfort offered by your trusty sleeping bag. When it comes to real comfort, you really can’t beat an air mattress, and AirBedz — that company that advertises itself as the “Original Truck Bed Air Mattress” maker — is at the top of our recommendation list. They make up the bulk of our collection, but feel free to explore what else we have to offer. These ultra-tough inflatables are available in different finishes and patterns, including camo to complete the outdoorsy feel, and, should you ever want to camp out in your own den, you can find wheel well inserts to flesh your mattress out. Powerful pumps inflate or deflate in no time at all, and most importantly, you and your date can spend a night high above the uncomfortable earth and any creepy-crawlies that venture close.

TRUCK TENTS

If you’re into a little more protection, not just from below but all sides, then you might want to invest in a truck tent. You’ll find tents compatible with trucks, Jeeps and SUVs, and the way they setup means you don’t need a flat surface to pitch camp. If you have a pickup, you can assemble the tent right in the bed, but we also carry products that allow you to put even more distance between you and the ground — like right on the roof of your vehicle. The Smittybilt Overlander Rooftop Tent sports adjustable rails that allow you to mount it easily to your factory or aftermarket roof rack system, and if you so choose, you can purchase a ladder extension for taller vehicles. Every tent boasts heavy-duty manufacturing to hold up over time, and most come with mesh windows for ventilation and mosquito nets to keep the bugs out.
