Your Clermont Toyota vehicle is key to having a successful tailgating celebration. Think about it!

Tailgating essentials

While this first tip isn’t an end all be all for your tailgating experience, but you have to take into account the Clermont Toyota vehicle you’ll be using to host the celebration. At Toyota of Clermont, we recommend using a larger vehicle like a Toyota 4Runner SUV or a Toyota Tacoma to ensure that you have ample space for people and supplies and the necessary utility to pull off a successful tailgating celebration.

Now that your vehicle’s been squared away, it’s time to talk supplies! Here are a few items that we recommend using while tailgating:

  • Bluetooth speaker(s): Setting the mood, bringing friends together, and enhancing your tailgating experience are all accomplished with the right music. Bluetooth speakers are great to use so you always have access to your phone and can control the tunes without getting distracted from the fun!
  • Portable grill: A proper tailgating experience typically involves food and plenty of it. Having a portable grill on hand in the back of your Clermont Toyota truck or SUV will keep everyone fed and having a good time.
  • Cooler: If you’re going to have food, you’ll also need drinks. Make sure to keep things chilled and bring a cooler with plenty of ice.
  • Lawn chairs or portable seating: While the back of your Clermont Toyota SUV or truck may provide ample seating for all your guests, it’s always best to bring alternative seating if you have more people than expected.
  • Hot food cooler: It sounds weird, we know, but storing your hot food and keeping it hot is essential for a successful tailgate. Use hot bricks and aluminum foil to line the inside of a cooler to keep your food offerings warm throughout the festivities.
  • Jumper cables: While they’re most definitely essential for an emergency kit for your Clermont Toyota vehicle, jumper cables will come in handy if your car’s battery loses too much charge throughout the tailgate. Keeping the car running or wiring accessories to the battery will cause it to drain quickly and could leave you in hot water if you’re not careful. Be sure to have a set of jumper cables on hand if your Clermont Toyota vehicle breaks down.
