How to load the trunk of the car to take advantage of all the space

Although we were not very clear what this summer would be like or if we could enjoy the holidays, the arrival of the “new normal” has given us a glimmer of hope. Everything can change, but for the moment it seems that we will have the freedom to take the car and move throughout the Spanish territory.
At this time, the car is one of the preferred means of transport, and this year, this trend is expected to increase by the ravages caused by the virus and e l fear of contagion . If this is your option, it is important that before you hit the road you make a good forecast and organization of the trip . In most cases, traveling by car means traveling several hundred kilometers, carrying double the weight , suffering the consequences of traffic jams and all this puts the resistance of vehicles to the test, demanding greater effort and performance.
One of the most common problems when traveling by car appears when loading luggage . The weight you carry will depend on whether driving is more or less easy, since the greater the load, the more the sway will increase in any maneuver, and that produces an increased feeling of instability. Here we leave you a series of tips on how to organize and place your luggage so that the trip is safe at all times and you can take advantage of all the available space:
1. The first recommendation is that you check the vehicle manufacturer's specifications in relation to the gross weight and the maximum loads that the car can support, especially on the roof, axles, trailer capacity, etc.
2. Once you are clear about the weight, you should try to placeall the luggage only in the trunk . The load must be distributed evenly: the heaviest packages first in the forward zone, and the largest and most rigid cases in the bottom, the rest of the load on top.
3. To minimize the movement of the load, we will tie the luggage with clips or nets to the lashing points of the trunk.
4. It is advisable to cover all objects that may be sharp with a blanket to avoid causing damage in the event of braking.
5. A heavy-duty separation net can be placed between the boot and the rear seats so that luggage cannot reach the occupants in the event of being thrown out in an emergency maneuver.
6. If the trunk space is insufficient, use chests, preferably with a lock and aerodynamic shape; It is important to note that these objects increase vehicle instability, reduce engine power, and extend stopping distance. Evaluating the option of putting a roof rack in the car can be a good idea.
7. In no case carry loose objects inside the passenger compartment or on the rear tray. They impair the driver's vision and become high risk factors in the event of a collision or heavy braking: flying objects increase their weight up to 50 times during an accident at 50 km / h.
8. Before starting the trip, check and secure the load and fasten the rear seat belts, even if there are no passengers, to prevent the passage of luggage from the trunk to the passenger compartment.
