Cabana’s Tailgating Packing List

Tailgating season is upon us! We’ve been looking forward to the cookouts and community that comes with football season. Whether you’re heading back to your alma mater or rooting for your favorite NFL team, Cabana can take your tailgate to the next level.

Here’s everything you need to pack to make your Cabana tailgating trip a hit.

With Cabana’s refrigerator, packing for tailgating is already much easier. If you have a long drive ahead of you, you can enjoy the scenic route knowing your drinks aren’t relying on melting ice in a cooler. Just toss your beer of choice in the fridge instead!

Grilling is a crucial part of game day. The Cabana kitchen includes a two burner stove and comes with a pot and a pan. Anything you plan on serving cold (like spinach artichoke dip or guacamole) can be prepped beforehand and stored in the fridge. Burgers are an easy cookout food for Cabana’s stovetop. Pack a sharp knife and cutting board for any toppings you can’t prep beforehand.

Team Spirit!

Deck out your Cabana for game day! Bring along a flag or banner, hang streamers in your team’s colors, and of course load up your Cabana's closet with all your merch.

Extras for Hosting

Your Cabana sits and sleeps two, so it’s stocked for two. If you’re planning to spend the day with more friends, pack extra cups, plates, and utensils. 

Parking Plans

With your queen sized mattress along for the ride, sleeping is as simple as finding a parking spot. If you aren’t visiting a traditional campground, make sure wherever you settle in for the night allows overnight parking. If your plan is to continue on the road post-game, decide on a designated driver ahead of time. 

Shore Power

The Cabana battery charges in 3 ways: solar power, while driving, and by plugging into shore power. On a usual road trip route, the driving will be enough to keep your batteries going, but if you plan to stay stationary for several days in the cloudy Pacific Northwest, make sure there is an RV hookup option nearby.
