The Copilot (Part 2): Duties of a Perfect RoadTrip Partner

More Co-Pilot duties to be the Perfect Trip Partner

In our previous blog we talked about the first useful co-pilot duties or skills that your right-seat companion should have, in order to make long road trips better, safer and easier. Today we bring you the other three on our list:

Being Usefully There

One of the best things a co-pilot can do is to get involved by taking an active part in other aspects of the trip, such as: planning the itinerary, choosing the campground or hoping out and asking for directions. They can provide moral support to the driver, offer insights and recommendations to get them out of trouble and keep the spirits up when the driver’s confidence begins to wane.

Taking the Wheel When Necessary

Co-pilots may prefer to sit out the majority of the driving duties, but they should know how to operate the truck camper just the same way as their driver. Sharing the driving duties leaves travel partners refreshed and with a better awareness behind the wheel. It also helps to make better time, enjoy safer trips and have more energy upon arrival at the destination.

Let the Driver Drive!

We know harmless mistakes can happen when driving, so if you are on the co-pilot seat, don’t overreact! And try to avoid barking driving orders all the time or harping and lecturing about anything.
