Top 10 Items for a Summer Road Trip

By: Joshua Unseth-- 2010-07-07 5:00 am --

This list of the top ten wholesale items for a cross country road trip includes a list of items and collections that can all be found on wholesale search site www.dollardays.com.

10. Sunscreen

Nothing puts a damper on a fun old fashioned family trip like spending eleven hours outside at an amusement park and heading back to the hotel looking like the world's largest lobster catch.

9. Earplugs

Anybody who has ever travelled with children of any age knows how painful it can be. Problem solved.

8. Dog Leashes

If your taking a four legged friend along, it never hurts to have a few extra of these. And if your anything like Clark Griswold in "Vacation," it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to bring an extra pooch or two.

7. DVD Cases

Nothing promotes family bonding like every member of the family being totally absorbed in their favorite movies on their own personal DVD players. These cases hold enough movies to prevent having to talk to each other for weeks.

6. Taffy

Okay, so they excess sugar might give everyone a little extra energy to burn on the car ride. But a good piece of taffy is almost guaranteed to gum up little mouths, making impossible to whine, complain, or argue with siblings.

5. Stimulants

On the ride out to your vacation spot, everyone will be so excited you'll want to drive all the way through in one trip. On the way back, you'll be so ready to be home and out of the car you won't even notice the fourteen hour drive after popping a few of these.

4. Toilet Seat Covers

We all know how nasty those truck stop bathrooms can be. Take some of the guess work out of whatever it is that you'll be sitting in by picking up a few of these before you embark on that trip.

3. Anti-Diarrhea Medicine

It's a long way from Mexico back to Michigan. Montezuma's Revenge + No Gas Stations = Recipe for Disaster

2. Buckets

If you're headed to the beaches, what a great way to make sand castles. And this removes the need for frequent bathroom breaks. Just ease yourself to the back of the van and take care of business.

1. Protection

Nothing ruins a twenty-three hour drive home like a little morning sickness...
