Can You Sleep in the Back of a Subaru Outback?

Recently, we drove to South Dakota for a quick weekend. My husband and I opted for car camping and sleeping in our Subaru Outback instead of staying in hotels or trying to find camping along the way.

The short answer is yes!

We like keeping it simple when car camping. We take our dog, sleeping bags, pillows, two camp chairs, camp stove, kitchen gadgets, water, food, cooler, and personal items. To road trip across country in the Subaru with plenty of space, you’ll basically want a backpacking set up so minimize what you bring.
