This article about camping rig accessories is brought to you by Ford Accessories.


If camping in the woods makes you feel like a kid again, then camping in a rig tricked out by Ford will make you feel more like you’re in a treehouse designed by Barbie’s Dream House architect.

A two-man tent that pops up off the roof? A roof rail–mounted outdoor shower? A portable mini fridge and freezer?

Break out the koozies, people, we’re going outside in style!

Most of Ford’s camping accessories work on a variety of models—check the “fits these vehicles” tab to see what works for your rig.

That said, since we’re talking Dream House here, we’re envisioning them on the badass 2024 Ford Bronco. With modern tech, retro styling, and rugged off-roading capabilities, it’s #1 on our covet list.


Upgrade & Expand Your Storage

Yakima Rack Mounted Medium Cargo Basket

First, let’s tackle storage.

Ask any camper, having reliable and efficient storage options is crucial. It will help you stay organized, keep important items easily accessible, and protect your gear from the elements…or the wildlife.

So, here are a few awesome ways to upgrade your storage.

Let’s start strong with a Yakima Rack Mounted Medium Cargo Basket. It has an aerodynamic wind fairing, plus integrated crossbars for mounting additional bike, board, or boat gear mounts. Making it essentially fully adjustable and versatile for whatever your cargo needs are on the day.

Store your duffels, camp furniture, firewood, and even your coolers securely with an easy-to-use net, giving the kids or dogs more room to stretch out in the back. The best part? You don’t need an engineering degree or a single tool to install it!

If you’re planning on getting really dirty—and of course you are!—you may want to add the Yakima Rack Mounted Lockable Cargo Box. It keeps your cargo dry during off-road river crossings and safe during hotel stays along the way. It’s accessible from both sides and doubles as a ski/snowboard carrier come winter.


Elevate Your Sleeping Experience

Yakima Roof Top 2-Person HD Tent

Now, let’s talk tents that integrate with your vehicle.

Whether you’re looking for shade, relief from skeeters, or a full-on roof house, Ford has options. Our favorite is the Yakima Roof Top Two Person HD Tent, which perches on top of your Bronco to give you an incredible view of the sunrise and prevent you from getting eaten in your sleep by crocodiles.

Stored on the roof rack, it’s easy to unfold and set up and comes with a ladder for easy access. The doors, windows, and skylights zip open for meshed ventilation, and a rain fly and waterproof coating keep you nice and dry.

Napier Sportz Cove

Alternatively, if you’re a minimalist (or a crocodile whisperer), you may like the Napier Sports Cove, which works for the Bronco Sport and other models like the Expedition and Explorer.

The Sports Cove saves you the hassle of a full tent setup and transforms your car into a reliably level sleeping platform. Sleep with the liftgate wide open for fresh air and starlight while staying safe from bugs, critters, rain, and sun.


Awesome Accessories for Everything Else

When it comes to daytime camp activities, this is when the doors come off.

The Bronco may have been built for getting into the wild, but Ford wants the wild to get into you, too. With Ford’s Tube Door Kit, which is available for both two- and four-door Broncos, you can transform your vehicle into a mountain safari rover.

With the help of your adventure partner, you can swap them in at the campsite and store the doors securely in the back with a retention harness. (Tempting as it may be to forever feel the wind in your hair, the tube doors are for off-road use only.)

Finally, for those who love the Bronco but miss the tailgate of a traditional truck, fear not—Ford’s figured that one out, too. The Slideout Tailgate, which fits all 2021-2024 four-door Broncos, functions as a table, work surface, or step. And it stows neatly away, under the cargo floor in the back, when you’re done. It has a capacity of 600 pounds, so hop on up and crack a beverage or two.

There’s a lot more we didn’t mention—first aid kits, cargo organizers, pet carriers, entertainment centers—so check out Ford’s The Road Ahead page to get the full playground of options.

Whatever accessories you choose, adventure—and world filled with wonder—awaits.
