[box title=”Rockland Luggage Rolling 22 Inch Duffle Bag” color=”#333333″]Hauling all of your gear into the truck stop to take a shower can be a pain, but a small duffle bag on wheels can make your life easier, especially if you’re planning on making other purchases once you’re inside. Storing a duffle bag is easier than storing a hard-sided suitcase, because it can be pushed down for storage.

[box title=”Koolatron Compact Kooler” color=”#333333″]Coolers are usually large and unwieldy, which is why Koolatron developed the Compact Kooler, specially designed to fit in the snug spaces behind the seats of many cars, trucks, and vans. Like many of Koolatron’s coolers, this unit features a 12-volt cooling system that plugs into a car’s cigarette lighter. The cooler’s motor blows cold air over your food and beverages, keeping them 40 degrees F cooler than the outside temperature.
The cooler also doubles as a warmer, if you’d rather keep the contents toasty. Outside of the car or truck, the cooler is still versatile, with a swinging, foldaway handle for easy portage and a latchless lid that opens with one hand. Other handy features include a convenient cord wrap and a unique storage spot for the unplugged cigarette lighter. Despite the unit’s compact size and weight (only 9 pounds), it can still hold up to 23 12-ounce soft drinks. –Rivers Janssen
