November 7, 2008

It’s that time of year once again where truckers all across America are scratching their heads wondering what they’re going to get for Christmas from their wives or girlfriends. A tie? New socks? shirts and pants? A lump of coal? God only knows.

This year, make sure your woman gives you a gift that you can actually use, and let her know that just because you’re a trucker, doesn’t mean that you’re going to jump up and down at the sight of a new cordless drill. With this in mind, we here at GlobalTrucker.com have compiled a top 10 list of trucker gifts for the upcoming holidays.

10. Sleeper Cab FansThese fans will operate at one of three preselected speeds when the thermostat calls for cooler air. Once the thermostat is satisfied, the fan shuts off automatically. Designed to ensure consistent temperatures. Perfect for use when you leave your pets behind or while sleeping.

9. CAT Caterpillar MerchandiseEverything you love about CAT, from hats to toys to collectibles. If want Caterpillar merchandise then we have what your looking for and then some. We offer many different variety of hats in stock and ready to ship. If it’s not a CAT, its a dog.

8. Maps and AtlasesThese have been the old stand-by for truckers for years and years. With a wide variety of maps and atlases to choose from , you should never get lost the next time you hop into your rig.

5. 12 Volt Heaters – Winter is almost here and any truck driver would love to have a good heater. These sure come in handy if your truck heater decides to play out when its about 15 degrees outside. They also help cut down on idling fuel costs because you won’t have to have the truck running for these to operate.

4. Locking Gas Caps – Need I say more? Well ok then. We all know its a mean world we leave in and its a shame, but you can help protect your precious fuel with one of these fuel theft deterrents.

3. Seat Cushions – Every truck driver needs a good, comfortable seat to sit on especially when they are sitting 8-10 hours a day. With a wide variety of different styles and models to choose from, we are sure you will find one thats right for you.

2. 12 Volt Cookers – Every trucker out there knows its hard to find a good home cooked meal out on the road. So why not surprise them with a 12 volt cooker to help take a piece of home with them when they leave. They can take Sundays leftovers with them on Monday morning and heat them up in the truck that evening.

1. Gift Cards – Still not sure what to get them, why not get them a Global Trucker gift card. With over 12,000 items (including sports gifts) to choose from, I’m sure they won’t have any trouble finding something they like.

Semi Truck Accessories for the Inside and Outside

July 17, 2008

Big Rig Cab Interior Accessories

Just because you’re on the road more often than you’re at home is no reason that you shouldn’t be surrounded with personalized comforts. In fact, it’s precisely for this reason that you should take time to personalize your cab with as many individual touches as possible. Whether you want jazz up your cab with custom seat cushions or steering wheel covers or just install your favorite electronics such as MP3 players or DVD monitors, you’ll find a great selection of interior cab accessories at globaltrucker.com.

Global Trucker, a site devoted to trucking accessories, offers everything from chrome accessories to luggage specifically tailored for a trucker’s lifestyle. The selection of interior accessories on the site, however, is truly unique.

For instance, the 12-volt Nocord SummerSeat Self-Cooling Seat Cushion is both unique and useful for truckers who have ever found themselves sweating through the summer heat and stuck to their uncomfortable seats. The seat, which sells on the site for $59.99, can be charged via the cab’s cigarette lighter and also comes with an AC adaptor. Truckers can adjust the temperature of the seat and remain comfortable in its Microfiber and adjustable design.

But if you want the comfort without the cool, Global Trucker also has a selection of seating enhancements, like the AIRHAWK Comfort Seating System, a cushion designed specifically to relieve back problems of those who sit for hours on end. Additionally, for those who would rather be warm than cool, massage cushions with heating devices included are available. The cushions, which come in either upper back or full seat cover models, can be adjusted easily by remote. A selection of air mattresses is also available.

For those who want to add a little flash and pizazz to their cabs, Globe Trucker also offers a variety of products designed to add a little flare to your home away from home. Included in this selection is the Roadpro 12-Volt Purple Neon Ash Tray, steering wheel covers that offer a comfortable grip and several designs and colors, and a privacy curtain. And for the those who would rather have clean than snazzy, Globe Trucker offers a litter bag with disposable liners.

Though comfort and aesthetics are two of the most important categories of interior cab accessories, these are not the only types of products available on Global Trucker. A selection of other products, ranging from arm rests and pillows to organizers and air purifiers are available on the site.

Whether you’re looking for comfort or necessity, style or utility, Global Trucker is a web site that boasts variety and versatility. Truckers can browse a wealth of products that can be easily ordered online, many of which have warranties or guarantees. Though truckers are often more concerned with their cargo and what’s under the hood than what’s in the cab, truckers’ comfort and happiness with their workspace is often reflected in their performance. In order to make that workspace their own, truckers can visit many different sites on the web, but Global Trucker’s easy to use format and variety of products make it a great place for truckers to visit.

Whether your a trucker, RVer or just a vacationer, chances are its going to be hot this Summer. A 12 volt fan will help keep you cool with the air conditioner on and also with it off. Perhaps your a/c doesn’t work like what happened to me on a Summer vacation I took 3 years ago. We were just getting ready to leave out and all of a sudden the air conditioner goes dead.

It was a little warm and extra noisy that trip but it was well worth it!

A Little Taste of Home When Your Away from Home- 12 Volt Cookers

January 14, 2008

The 12 volt cooker, words cannot express what a truly magnificient item you are. 12 volt cookers have long been used by long-haul truck drivers, rv’ers and campers alike. Since most truck stops don’t have a place to hook up electricity to cook meals with, the 12 volt cooker has become the ideal way to cook meals on the road. There are several models of cookers to choose from. First model we will look at is the lunch box or stove style cooker. This cooker is usually shaped like a lunch box and can reach temperatures as high as 300°. category221.jpg

The next type is a frying pan style cooker. Just like the name implies, its a frying pan with a 12 volt plug on the end of it. Perfect for frying bacon and eggs in the morning hours. road-fryer1.jpg

A third type of 12 volt cooker is the toaster oven style. Shaped exactly like a toasteroventoaster oven, this cooker can be powered directly from your vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket.

A fourth style of 12 volt cooker is the pot style. This style is shaped like an ordinary pot and used to heat up soup or pop some popcorn. With 150 watts of power and only drawing 13 amps while working, this 12 volt pot is an ideal cookware.

One of the last styles I would like you to take a look at is the 12 volt slow cooker. Equipped with a 6 ft. power cord this 1.5 qt. stoneware crock pot makes an ideal companion for stews.rpsl-350.jpg
