Land Rover Freelander

You wouldn’t know it from the weather, but summer is almost here. That means it’s the perfect time to plan your summer activities. And there is no perfect summer vehicle than the Land Rover Freelander. Not only is the Freelander extremely manoeuvrable – an extremely useful characteristic for off-road driving – but its small size (in comparison to other Land Rover) make it excellent for use in cities. So, whether you’re having a city trip or a holiday out in the country, the Freelander is  the perfect summer vehicle. 

Perfect Summer Accessories For the Freelander

To celebrate the coming summer, we’ve put together this short article with some great summer accessories for the Freelander I & II. So, without further ado: 

Roof Racks 

For every holiday  there is a need for luggage, and there is no greater time of the year to go on holiday than the summertime –  when days seem to stretch out forever and where the temperatures finally approach something approaching bearability. 

For these times, having roof racks installed on your Freelander is a great idea. If you’re going on an international holiday, roof racks will allow you to put more luggage on the top of your vehicle – making the trip to the airport or ferry that much easier. And if you’re going on a staycation then you have even more incentive as your roof rack will allow you to take more luggage with you – meaning that your kids no longer have to worry about whether or not they have to choose between the laptop or the surfboard when you go to  Cornwall. 

What better summer accessory could there be? 

Bike Racks

Whether you’re going mountain biking up Mount Snowdon or taking the kids down to the local park, having a bike rack installed on your Freelander is a great idea. Not only does it mean you can take advantage of the sun and do some exercise while the weather is agreeable, it also means that you can explore more areas than would have otherwise been possible without the bike rack.

What other reason would you  need a bike rack? 

Climair Wind Deflectors 

Picture this: it’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and it’s warm. Really warm. You’re driving down the motorway or highway, and you notice a single bead of sweat falling down your neck. Without thinking, you roll down the window and let the cool road air brush against your face. 

The feeling is incredible.

But then, only a second or so after you rolled down the window, you  realise that there’s too much air coming into the cabin. The wind is battering your eyes, and it’s difficult to keep your eyes open while driving. So, dejected, you close the windows. 

Minutes pass in silence a s you  listen to the wind billowing outside the vehicle. Eventually, however, you feel the trickle of sweat down your neck again, and so you open the windows once again… 

The summer is a fantastic time of year. It’s a time of renewal and adventure. However, the realities of the time offer their own frustrations. In order to keep the wind out of your eyes this summer, John Craddock is proud to offer Climair Wind Deflectors. These accessories have been designed to keep you safe while  driving, to ensure that you can keep your full attention on the road, and don’t have to worry about the annoying wind. Nor do you have to worry about  permanently scaring your Freelander.
