First aid kits

 Whether it if for you camper, auto or atv/utv first aid kits are a must and as the saying goes you get what you pay for. Lets look at a few first aid kits we will start with a basic model that we just removed for our camper.

It has a nice plastic case that is hard to open, cheap adhesive bandages and everything is crammed into it.




A step up in a soft case with a better layout with better access to individual items is this first aid kit that I believe we purchased at Walmart. It still has the cheaper bandages but it has clear easy to see instructions for use by each package.







My personal favorites are the Adventure Medical kits, they also come in a soft case but they are more compact.

I have had a hunter series kit in my jeep for years. It is more compartmentalized , but access is still good and less searching for what you need than the cheapo kit at the top. Plus it comes with a detachable field trauma kit.

It will take care of 1-7 people for 1-7 days.




We replaced our cheapo kit in the camper with the Adventure Medical Sportsman series 400 kit which will take care of 10 people for 14 days. It also is compartmentalized but with good access and has a field trauma kit.




What I like best about the Adventure Medical kits is that when you use up parts of the kit you can go on their web site and get replacement items no needing to replace the whole kit.

They also have separate field trauma kits.

Must have pop up camp trailer mods

 In my opinion these mods are must haves for pop up campers.

 

A  BAL leveler is a must for any single axle trailer, it makes leveling so much easier .


A digital thermostat will keep your trailer at a more constant temperature eliminating the cold time before the heater comes on. And get it up off the floor mount it on the sink cabinet.


Reflectix window inserts. I guarantee these inserts in your windows will help hold your heat in.



Popup Gizmos (pugs) or emergency space blankets over the bunk ends.



A door alarm, lets face it the lock on a popup trailer door is pretty useless, a door alarm will wake you up if your door is pried open.


And some 12 volt plug in so you can power some things off 12 volt power.
