After what seemed like a long tortuous winter, summer is finally here and many people are now getting ready to plan their summer vacations. While many people fly to their vacation spots, there are also a lot of us that will also plan a fun road trip to places like the mountains, the beach or maybe even just a fun drive up the coast. Here are five new cars that will make that road trip even more enjoyable and five of the latest gadgets to bring along for the trip.
2015 Ford Mustang Convertible: No list would be complete without a convertible and this year Ford is introducing an all-new Mustang. The 2015 Mustang Convertible will be offered with a range of engines including a new turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder.

It’s a chance for you and your friends to write quick-witted lyrics (either in a song or poem) format, about some pretty absurd themes. Everything you need to play is in the box.

2015 Cadillac Escalade: Need something that can haul all the kids and their toys?

Ostrich Pillow: Rather than grabbing a bunch of bulky pillows off your bed to help the kids nap, what about this cool looking Ostrich Pillow? It’s the perfect napping accessory since it not only puts a cushion around your head, but also helps block out the light so you can get some much needed shut eye on the road.
2015 Ford F-150: Need a vehicle to that can tow the family boat or maybe a pair of dirt bikes? Well the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 is up for the task with a long list of tech features like integrated loading ramps, which enable easy loading of ATVs, motorcycles and a smart tow module that makes towing easier. The 2015 F-150 also now has a new body that is made out of lighter aluminum that not only makes the truck lighter, but is also more dent resistant.
Eton rukus Solar: Need some music at the campsite? The rukus Solar not only has two speakers that you can connect to wirelessly via Bluetooth, but its solar panel means that it charges itself using the power of the sun. The rukus Solar also has enough power to play up to 8 hours once the sun goes down and can even charge your phone or device via its USB port.
2015 Honda Fit: Need something smaller that can not only serve duty as the perfect city car, but also can also swallow a pair of surfboards? The 2015 Honda Fit is one of the best small subcompact models available not only because it is rated at 41 mpg on the highway and its rear seat has more legroom than the Civic and Accord models, but thanks to the trademark Magic Seat, the Fit can fit almost anything that you throw at it.
Scrubba Wash Bag: Road trips don’t usually provide access to a washing machine to clean your clothes, but what if you need to quickly wash a t-shirt or some of your gear? The Scrubba Wash Bag can clean your clothes on the go in six easy, simple steps.
2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe: The F-Type is one of the most beautiful cars on the road today and while the convertible is great for a quick drive up the coast, it’s trunk can barely fit an overnight bag. Luckily the 2015 F-Type Coupe is arriving this summer and has room to carry at least two carry-on sized bags or maybe a pair of golf bags. A panoramic glass roof is also available as an option to keep the sunlight coming in.
Dometic TropiCool Cooler: Ice chests are so last last century, now a new crop of iceless coolers can keep all your food and drinks cool using the DC adapter in your car.
