What To Keep In Your Glove Box

When utilized efficiently, the glove box in your car can be a valuable part of your vehicle. This is the place where you can keep everything from an emergency First Aid kit to your insurance and registration. However, it’s important that you don’t overcrowd your glove box with unnecessary items that will only get in the way.

Here are some of the items that you are most likely to need when behind the wheel of your car. By keeping them handy in your glove box, you’ll be able to easily access everything inside without having to rummage around your vehicle aimlessly.

Drivers Information

This is a biggie. In the event you ever get pulled over or get into an accident, you’ll need to be able to show your license and registration in a hurry. If you aren’t able to show these documents, then you can be arrested. Do yourself a favor and keep these things within reach and you’ll be able to keep calm in an otherwise uneasy situation.

Flashlight

Having a flashlight will come in handy at night. There are countless scenarios that could take place that would result in you needing to pull over and check your car out at night. But if you don’t have a flashlight, you’ll be putting yourself in danger. While you may keep the rest of your emergency items in the back, keep your flashlight in the glove box.

First-Aid Kit

There are some oversized First-Aid kits that will not fit into a glove box. However, you can get a miniature kit that has just the basics and leave it within reach. Hopefully you never have to use it, but a small First-Aid kit will come in handy in the event of a minor medical mishap.

Pro Tip – Inside of your First-Aid kit, include an In Case of Emergency (ICE) card. This is a common place that people will look, and they will find contact information in the event of an accident or other emergency.

Slimed Down Version of Your Owners Manual

Your owner’s manual is important, but it isn’t something that you need to keep in your glove box at all times. That being said, there is still some valuable information that will come from your owner’s manual. Therefore, keep just the important details in a slimed down version, and then toss the rest of the book in a safe place.

Phone Charger

With as much as you rely on your smartphone for, keeping a portable charger will help you avoid a dead battery while on the road. While you may be able to charge your phone when you get home in most cases, think about what would happen if your battery died and you had an emergency while on the road. You can avoid this from happening by keeping a phone charger readily available in your glove box.

Your glove box space is limited, so it should be optimized with the items that you’re going to need most. As you fill your glove box, consider the valuable items here as the things you are most likely to need while on the road.

The 2 Best Super C Motor Coaches on the Market

A few weeks ago we posted a blog on what you should be looking for if you’re debating between purchasing a Class A or Super C motor home. If you happen to be leaning towards the Super C, then make sure to read on. Here, we’ll give you some information on what we at Dylans RV believe to be the best 2 Super C motor coaches on the market right now. These motor homes aren’t the typical Class C units you may be used to…they are much larger, luxurious, and have a ridiculous amount of power good for getting you through nearly any roadway you could possibly travel on.

With so many manufacturers putting out Super C’s these days, you may be asking yourself which is best. While classifying anything as “the best” is always very subjective and opinions differ from person to person, we’ll just tell what we believe to be the 2 very best on the market in terms of quality and value.

Haulmark Motor Coach 4504HB

Haulmark Motor Coach 4504HB

If you’re looking for a Super C that has tons of living space, then you’ve just found your ideal coach. This particular floor plan has 4 large slideouts for additional floor space, a huge kitchen with an island with double sinks (a rare feature in a coach like this), extra cabinet space, and a private master bedroom. Every component of this coach was designed with luxury in mind and that is evident from the moment you step inside one of these beauties. The cabin is outfitted with solid surface countertops and owners have the option to upgrade to 6 different colors and styles of granite tile and 2 different hard wood options. If there’s a particular look you’re going for, Haulmark will be able to accommodate you.

The folks at Haulmark thought of everything when designing this coach to make it feel just like home. A skylight and glass bowl sink in the bathroom are perfect examples. 3 air conditioners (2 in the living space, 1 in the bedroom) ensure that passengers will be comfortable during these hot summer months, and a Sony tablet to control the audio/video components (including the outdoor entertainment center) bring this coach well into the 21st century. Again, this coach has been crafted to make you feel like you’re right at home even if you happen to be thousands of miles away.

As far as power is concerned, there is certainly no shortage here. The 4504HB runs on a 500HP Volvo engine and drives like a much smaller motor home, making this 45 foot beast seem much smaller.

Dynamax Corp DX3 DX 37TRS

For those of you looking for an awesome, brand new Super C motor coach and aren’t looking to break the bank, then the all new DX3 is a viable option with MSRP at just $298,000.  Dynamax has long had a reputation for producing high quality, luxury motor homes and certainly lives up to that standard with the DX3 37TRS. A shorter coach than the Haulmark, this unit measures in at just over 39 feet in length and has a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of 33,000 pounds so you can rest assured that this is a sturdy motor home through and through. The DX3 is built on a Freightliner chassis and is powered by a 350HP Cummins engine and boasts 1,000 foot-pounds of torque. Planning on towing a car or trailer behind you? No worries here, this model comes standard with a 20,000 pound tow hitch.

The interior of the coach is equally as impressive as it’s technical features. 3 slideouts give the cabin tons of living space while cherry wood cabinets and custom woodwork can be found throughout the entire coach. An electric fireplace (only available in the 37TRS floor plan) gives an element of comfort that makes owners feel like they are in their own living room. A full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, 3 burner gas stove, and convection microwave making preparing a home cooked meal a cinch. The bedroom makes for a nice private getaway with a king size bed, a 32 inch LCD TV, and fresh carpeting.

Some other amenities include custom paint, an outdoor shower faucet, electronic cruise control, optional stackable washer/dryer combo, and digital back up and side view cameras.

Regardless of which of these Super C coaches you decide on, you’re making a phenomenal choice. You’re sure to be the envy of every campground and rest stop you pull up to in one of these luxury motor homes.
