Tips for Camping Out in Your Mitsubishi SUV

Camping out in your Mitsubishi SUV - Mountaineer Mitsubishi - Beckley, WV

Overnighting under the stars is a great way to take immerse yourself in the natural beauty of West Virginia. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, Outlander, and Outlander PHEV make excellent camping companions thanks to available Super All-Wheel Control technology, which empowers you to tackle rough, slippery, and mushy back roads with stability and grace. If you’d like to use your Mitsubishi SUV to enjoy a weekend away or a night out under the stars, these simple tips for camping out will help you make the most of your experience.

If it’s just you and your partner, invest in an inflatable mattress that you can place in your Mitsubishi SUV once you collapse the back seats. If you need a bit more sleeping space to accommodate a few family members or friends, you can purchase tents that attach to and extend from the liftgate. Or buy a rooftop-style tent that fastens to the top of the vehicle, if you prefer to sleep above ground-level (and a bit farther from any critters that wander the campsite at night).

Sleep with the vehicle windows open, for ventilation. And consider getting some camping screens designed to fit over your Mitsubishi SUV’s windows, to keep the bugs at bay.

A rooftop cargo carrier or set of roof racks will increase your Mitsubishi’s storage capacity on camping trips. That way, you can pack extra bedding, fishing gear, or cooking supplies on top of your SUV to free up space in the cargo area.

For food storage, invest in a car cooler that you can plug into your auxiliary outlet. A portable grill is another useful thing to bring along so you can enjoy some fresh-cooked barbecue and veggies on your next overnight in the great outdoors.

Not sure what camping accessories would be best for your Eclipse Cross, Outlander, or Outlander PHEV? Give us a call at Mountaineer Mitsubishi. We’ll help you pick the right add-ons to elevate your outdoorsy adventures in Beckley and beyond.

3 Tips to Prepare for Your Epic Summer Road Trip

Summer Road Trip Tips - Mountaineer Mitsubishi - Beckley, WV

Do you have plans for an epic summer road trip? Whether you have taken several road trips before or this will be your first year doing so, it’s important to properly prepare your Mitsubishi for the journey. Follow these tips before your family hits the road.

Have a Packing Game Plan

When loading up your car with luggage, it’s important to know your car’s gross vehicle weight rating, which is the amount of weight it can hold. Subtract total passenger weight and curb weight from GVWR to find out how much gear you can bring. Then, place your heaviest items on the bottom near the center of the cargo area and your lighter items on top. This is the safest way to travel since it prevents hefty items from moving around the car.

Adjust Your Seat

To have maximum comfort on your road trip, you may need to adjust the driver’s seat. When sitting, your hips should be slightly above your knees, and you should not have to lock your elbows to grip the steering wheel.

Inspect Your Car

The last thing you want on a road trip is for your car to experience maintenance issues. To help prevent this, top off your fluids as needed and thoroughly look over your tires. Make sure your tires have as much pressure as your owner’s manual recommends and check that they have enough tread.

If your Mitsubishi is due for maintenance or a checkup before you embark on your journey, don’t hesitate to schedule a service appointment at Mountaineer Mitsubishi in Beckley, West Virginia.

Mitsubishi, Record the Journey “Small Batch – Big Impact” Film

A couple years back, Mitsubishi Motors North America began to partner with Record the Journey, a military veterans charity, to take part in the Rebelle Rally, an all-women’s off-road navigational event. Last year, two US Army veterans, Sergeant Major Rachael Ridenour and Sergeant Kristie Levy, drove an Outlander PHEV, named Electra, in the 2020 Rebelle Rally event. (The name Electra is a nod to the fact that the Outlander is the first-ever plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to take part in the Rebelle Rally event.)

The event, we should mention, is a grueling 10-day off-road challenge — the longest of its kind in the continental US. Piece of cake, right?

To commemorate the partnership of Mitsubishi and Record the Journey — and the beautiful way these veterans are working together to meet the challenges of the rally — Mitsubishi released a film called “Small Batch – Big Impact” that follows the story of Ridenour and Levy as they compete in the rally. You can check out the short film below:

“After two successful years of partnership with Record the Journey, it’s an honor to be able to celebrate our mutual achievements with this latest ‘Small Batch – Big Impact’ film,” said the chief operating officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Mark Chaffin. “We’ve made history together at the Rebelle, but I hope the real legacy of our collaboration will be increased awareness of, and greater support for, the valuable work that Rachael and the RTJ team do for military veterans every day.”

Mitsubishi Makes History in 2020 Rebelle Rally

At the 2020 Rebelle Rally, the first all-women off-road navigation rally in the United States, Mitsubishi made history by entering the Outlander PHEV, the first electric vehicle ever driven in the rally in the five years it’s been running.

Rebelle Rally teams consist of a driver and a navigator piloting their off-roader through the deserts of Nevada and California. 2020 was the first year Rebelle Rally allowed electrified vehicles, and Mitsubishi rushed to prove the capabilities of the Outlander PHEV.

The 2020 Outlander PHEV delivers an incredible fuel economy rating of 74 mpg combined, with up to 22 miles of all-electric range.* It’s also perfect for driving on rough terrain thanks to its Super All-Wheel Control, which comes with multiple drive modes for various terrain and driving situations and uses a system of smart technologies to deliver traction where it’s needed most.

For the second year in a row, Mitsubishi partnered with the nonprofit organization Record the Journey, which benefits veterans and works to ease the transition from active service to civilian life. Last year, Mitsubishi and Record the Journey modified a Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for disabled veteran driver, Rachael Ridenour, making Ridenour the first adaptive athlete to drive in the Rebelle Rally.

Today’s Mitsubishi lineup, including the efficient Outlander PHEV, is rugged enough to handle your next family adventure. Check out our selection online, then schedule your test drive at Mountaineer Mitsubishi in Beckley, West Virginia.
