Life on the road is a chance to get away and it doesn’t mean sacrificing comforts. These must-haves make a great day even better — whether enjoying some cold brews travelling down Baja or a hot breakfast before hitting the slopes. These items keep you warm or cool, preserve your grub for days, and make all your amazing moments even more enjoyable. So whether you’re in an RV, a van or a hatchback, extending your journey — be it days or weeks — is always an option.
Hit the road to freedom
The vanlife lifestyle is synonymous with freedom. The journey matters more than the destination. You can take short trips out of town on the weekends or extended excursions across the globe while working remotely. There are no limits to how far you can go and what you can explore.

Skyblue Featured Video: Paulina Eriksson – Surfing the Wave of Vanlife Freedom
Surfer, skateboarder, and vanlife enthusiast Paulina Eriksson never misses a sunrise thanks to mobile living made easy by Dometic products. With the Dometic CFX 28 and daily personal devices running on a Dometic charger and inverter, which recharges whenever the van is running, Paulina doesn’t need to think about stopping to replenish energy resources or worry about constantly refilling the ice in a cooler. That means more time enjoying their gorgeous surroundings and less time worrying about maintenance. The van is also equipped with a stove and a Dometic toilet, so they have everything they need to stay on the trail for days without needing to go get more groceries. This way, they can go to remote locations and distant shores for days on end without a care in the world.
