There are many different things that come under the term truck accessories. Accessories can generally be divided into two groups; classic and gimmick. Both groups hold practical and clever innovations, but the classical truck accessories are the usual standard type of accessories, whilst the gimmicks are, well, gimmicks!
Classical accessories include things like seat covers, floor mats, and the like. These are all ways which will help keep the truck neat and tidy. Seat covers will catch any bits of dirt and crumbs that fall, and prevent them from getting stuck in the folds and seams of the seats of the truck. They can then be removed and shaken out, so that the truck remains clean. Many seat covers are waterproof too, which prevents the truck’s seats from getting stained and moldy. Moreover, depending on the material of the seat covers, the covers could be machine washable too, making it so simple to give the seat covers a thorough clean.
Floor mats also help to maintain a neat truck. The mats will collect the rain and mud from footwear, and stop the carpet of the truck from getting stained and spoiled. Some floor mats are more waterproof than others, but generally the mats themselves will be able to keep clean too. Mats are easy to take in and out of the car, and bang out when they get too dusty or dirty.
The type of truck accessories that are considered gimmicks are mini ovens, kettles, toasters etc. They too are extremely practical since long journeys in the truck could cause gaping holes in drivers stomachs. Having a ‘kitchen’ on board means that drivers can stop anywhere they like without having to look for a service station and pay the high prices there.
These sorts of truck accessories work from the regular 12V cigarette lighter in the truck. Many of them have mounting kits to ensure full safety whilst driving. truck accessories like these are relatively inexpensive to buy as they are small and compact. They are also uncomplicated devices, for example, the portable oven will come with one heat setting and a fifteen minute timer. This is a simple, easy to use accessory, perfect for hungry drivers on the go.
Coffee brewers, fridges, and all these things come in small sizes, and do the job. They don’t have all these amazing extras like the home ones, but then again, the truck is not a home. Drivers have found these accessories life savers when stuck in rush hour, or long lines of traffic. At least they have a warm drink or cold can of coke to keep them going.
The list and choice of the different truck accessories is endless. Truck owners enjoy kitting themselves out with all their cabin’s essentials, for life on the road.
