Even though our Mercedes-Benz models provide roadside assistance, you might want to pack a few things just to be safe. Especially if you’re headed out for a long trip in your Mercedes-Benz Airstream, you’ll want to know what you might need in your emergency roadside kit.

What Should You Pack?

  • Snacks and bottled water– No matter where you are, you’ll need to stay hydrated and ready for what comes your way.
  • Blankets– If you happen to get stuck at night, the air might get too cool for comfort.
  • Phone charger– As long as your car’s battery works, you can charge your phone to get in contact with someone who can help you.
  • First aid kit– You never know when you’ll need to care for a wound. It’s always good to be prepared with a full stocked first aid kit
  • Sunblock– During the day, if you happen to get stuck on the side of the road, you’ll want to protect yourself from the sun.
  • Jumper cables– Having your own jumper cables makes it a lot easier to get a jump, especially if the other person wasn’t prepared.
  • Emergency contact information– Ensuring you have access to a towing service or roadside assistance is the first step to getting your vehicle back on the road.
  • Extra oil and coolant– On the hotter days, having these on hand will help prevent your engine from overheating.
