We make it easy to choose our Jacksonville, FL collision center by providing reliable service at affordable prices and offering tips about a wide array of automotive topics. Camping is common here in Florida, and we’ve serviced a variety of vehicles that have taken on terrain that was too rugged or forged water that was maybe a bit too high. With these past experiences in mind, we decided to create a guide for the best camping-oriented vehicles.

If you like to camp and thinking about buying or leasing a new vehicle, you might be wondering what kind of automobile you should buy. While there are plenty of models to choose from, all the available options can be categorized into a particular kind of body style. The two that we most recommend include an SUV and truck.

One body style you may want to consider is an SUV. SUVs are available in a range of sizes and they typically have seating for five to eight people. SUVs generally sit higher off the road than sedans or minivans, and they are often equipped with four- or all-wheel drive, meaning they can handle off-road duties with ease. SUVs also offer great towing capacities, along with versatility and generous cargo room in the cabin.

A pickup truck is another great choice for those who like to sleep under the stars. They are available with various cab styles and bed lengths. If it isn’t standard, four-wheel drive is often an option. Pickup trucks are widely recognized for their towing and off-road capabilities. Their cargo bed is a desirable feature as well, as it allows you to stow an array of items conveniently. Many models even boast cargo management systems to keep your belongings in place while on—or off—the road.
