When most  people think of tailgating, they tend to think of pickup trucks. However, what many people do not realize is that conversion vans also have the hookups and features that make for a great tailgating party. Here are some tips for making the most of your conversion van when tailgating for March Madness.

Conversion vans really are the ultimate tailgating vehicle. They have enough space on the inside to carry everything you could possibly need for the tailgate. Furthermore, in the event of adverse weather conditions, your van can also serve as a great shelter and hangout spot to keep the party going until the weather clears up. Consider lining some blankets along the seats of your van so as to avoid stains, and be sure to have floor mats so that your van’s floors do not get muddy. Your van can provide a great place to hang out with friends and meet new people while waiting for the weather to clear up.

If you plan on using your conversion van to tailgate, start by making the most of the features your van is likely already equipped with. If you have built-in television sets, make sure those are on for your guests to enjoy. If you have hookups, consider mounting a larger screen television in your van for viewing, and fold seats down to ensure that the television is visible from the back of the van. You may also want to consider opening up the back of the van so that people partying outside can see the TV without necessarily having to be in the van itself. Does your conversion van come with a refrigeration unit? If so, then this is the perfect time to put it to use. Store drinks in your van to keep them nice and cold, rather than having to deal with the hassle of keeping them on ice. You can also use your van’s refrigeration unit to keep food chilled, which will prevent it from going bad sooner. By using the features that are already built into your van, you will also save space by not having to bring along a large cooler to keep everything cold.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways in which you can use your conversion van for the ultimate tailgating experience. Be sure to keep these tips in mind as you plan for your March Madness tailgating. Then, all that is left to do is bring along some friends and pack up your van with drinks and treats for everybody. This is a truly great recipe for an amazing time.
