Finding the Perfect Camping Spot with the Ford Maverick Tremor’s Built-in Inclinometer

If you’re a proud owner of a Ford Maverick Tremor or considering renting ours for your next adventure, you’re in for a treat. This truck comes equipped with some handy features that can make your camping experience truly exceptional. One such feature is the built-in inclinometer, a tool that can help you find a perfectly flat spot to set up your rooftop tent, ensuring a comfortable and restful night.

What is an Inclinometer?

An inclinometer measures the angle of tilt or slope of an object relative to the earth’s gravity. In the Ford Maverick Tremor, this feature provides real-time feedback on the pitch (front-to-back tilt) and roll (side-to-side tilt) of the vehicle. This information is useful when you’re looking to park on a flat surface, particularly for setting up camp with a roof top tent.


How to Use the Inclinometer

Here’s a step-by-step guide to using your Ford Maverick Tremor’s inclinometer to find the perfect camping spot:

1. Activate the Inclinometer

Access the inclinometer display through the instrument cluster. You can do this by navigating using the button located on the right side of the steering wheel.

2. Scout Your Campsite

When you reach your potential campsite, drive slowly around the area while monitoring the inclinometer readings. Look for spots where the pitch and roll are as close to zero as possible.

3. Make Small Adjustments

If necessary, move the vehicle slightly forward, backward, or sideways to fine-tune your position. You can also place a rock or a small log under a wheel to help create a flat spot if the ground is uneven.

4. Set Up Your Tent

After finding the flattest possible spot, park the vehicle and activate the parking brake to ensure stability. Then, set up your rooftop tent, making sure the vehicle remains stable throughout the setup process.

By following these steps, you can leverage the Ford Maverick Tremor’s built-in inclinometer to find the perfect camping spot, ensuring a comfortable and restful night's sleep in your rooftop tent. Happy camping!
