In addition to getting yourself get ready for the tailgating season, you also have to prepare your car for this special season. Your vehicle can be the star player of the tailgating party.

Something for Entertainment
Be it a TV or Bluetooth speakers, make sure you have adequate items for entertainment. Music and entertainment are the core of any party, and the best way to achieve it is to carry your personal stuff. Bring Bluetooth enabled portable speakers that can connect to your car’s audio system or your smartphone. If you have speakers that can last for 10-12 hours, this will make your day.
Bring Your Tailgating Toolbox
A serious tailgater is one that carries a tailgating toolbox, including all essentials. Rather than preparing things at the last minute, it is best to pack the toolbox essentials a few days before or the night before the drive.
Knives, spoons, tongs, spatula, aluminum foil, bowls, cooking spray, lighter and all other things you need together should be in your toolkit. These are must-have items. If you are going in a group, carry enough stuff for every member.
Pack Food in Mason Jars
No matter what you cook, it is possible to serve almost anything in a big mason jar. Barbecue, cocktails, sundaes, chili, taco meat, pork and all other items can be packed in mason jars.
Further, cook as much as you can before driving to the party place. This way, you don’t have to spend more time grilling. Stack up the cargo space with a portable grill. Paper towel, wet wipes and other such items can be packed to gain convenience.
Cargo Mats and Rugs
Tailgating is fun, but you do not want your car to become a mess. Dirt and dust entering into the car can mess up things and make your vehicle appear dirtier. Brats, tacos, chili or burgers — anything entering into the car can make it messy.
Hence, lay down rugs and cargo mats to protect the interior of your car from getting spoiled or stained. Remove the mats and brush the dust off once the party is over.
Other Tailgating Accessories
To make tailgating fun and easy, pack your car with other tailgating accessories. A magnet koozie, double tow hitch extension and smaller trays to store tailgating needs are some of the important accessories to consider.
If there isn’t much space in your car, pack the essentials into a tailgating trailer that lets you store even the grill.
With these tips, your truck or car can get ready for tailgating season. Sure, there are plenty of other tips and hacks to consider, but most important among them is to stay relaxed and be a team player. Enjoy tailgating!
