Take a look at our top choices for the best Honda models to take camping and see which one is right for you!
What is the Best Honda Vehicle for an Outdoorsy Driver?
The Honda CR-V is a great choice for drivers who love an outdoor adventure due to its overall sporty attitude. The CR-V has plenty of space in the cargo area for all your camping supplies, especially when you utilize the fold-flat second row for maximum cargo capacity. In terms of power, the new CR-V features a standard 184-hp, 2.4-Liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder engine that can get a fuel economy of up to 32 miles per gallon* on the highway, meaning cross-country trips no longer have to cost an arm and a leg in the fuel department. Finally, the CR-V can tow up to 1,5000 pounds when properly equipped so you can haul that extra equipment if needed.
The Ridgeline is as rugged as it is handsome, meaning you can rough it in style no matter where you go. This truck was designed with plenty of innovations that are perfect for camping, like its bed with minimal wheel housing, so it’s perfect for sleeping. Or its cargo area that comes available with an industry-first Truck Bed Audio System, which uses the bed walls to pump out great sound. The new Ridgeline even features an available 150W/400W Truck-Bed Outlet in the wall of the bed, so you can plug in your speakers or other gadgets and keep them easily accessible.
