Get ready for your staycation

5 people camping

With flights suspended and the British weather behaving itself, many of us are looking to stay in the UK this summer, and to seek new adventures closer to home.

Here is our guide to smart preparations for your 2020 staycation.


Many of us love to load our vehicles to the hilt when setting off on holiday, taking as many home comforts with us as possible, alongside our adventure gear, the dog’s basket and picnic essentials… the list goes on!

Life is so much easier if you have right equipment, from roof boxes to bike racks, tow bars to trailers, you can increase your loading capacity so the whole family, along with their belongings, can join you comfortably for the ride.

Here at Motabars, we have everything you need to transform the vehicle you have into the vehicle you want, and we help you fit it too.

Why struggle squeezing suitcases or camping equipment into the boot? Roof bars and a roof box give you added capacity for storing large, bulky items on top, leaving you plenty of room inside for smaller possessions.

If you’re off on an adventure, we have a selection of bike racks for you and the family. Fix them to your roof, to the rear of your vehicle or your towbar; talk to us about what works best for you.

We’ll also advise on how best to affix extra large items like canoes or kayaks safely to your roof.

Towbar fitting

If you are considering adding a towbar, please read our guide to towbars to explore which type of towbar suits you and your vehicle best. Towbars are quick and easy to fit, and give you flexibility to hook up a caravan, boat or trailer safely and with ease.

We’ve also written a handy guide to loading a trailer, to help you manage your load safely, check legal weight limits and ensure your load is secure during transit for trouble free towing.

Our towbar fitting service includes all electrics and wiring too, so you’ll be good to go on your travels.

The open road awaits, and we’re here to help you on your way. Call us or drop into our store; we’d be happy to help equip you for safe, hassle free motoring this summer.
