RinseKit Tailgate Pad: Ultimate Clean-Up System for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Portable outdoor gear cleaning system

In the world of outdoor adventures, a new companion is gearing up to join the journey in early 2024. Imagine the ease of rinsing off your surfboard, bike, or even your own salty skin after a day out, all while your vehicle stays pristine. This is the promise of the RinseKit Tailgate Pad, a nifty contraption that blends the utility of a 12V shower with the robustness of a tailgate bike pad.

At the heart of this innovative product is a 10-gallon water bladder, neatly tucked inside the tailgate, paired with a potent 12V, 50 PSI water pump. The convenience doesn't end there; this pump is powered through a four-pin trailer plug, ensuring that your clean-up station is just a car park away. And for those vehicles sans trailer connection, there's a cigarette plug option as well.

The real charm, however, is in the details. A seven-foot hose, complete with a shower head, offers a generous reach to cleanse your gear or cool off. The felt inner liner is a thoughtful touch, safeguarding your tailgate's paint from the scratches and scuffs of loading and unloading. With the capacity to hold up to five bikes, it's clear that the RinseKit Tailgate Pad is designed with groups and families in mind.

Weighing in at a mere 10 pounds and crafted to universally fit any tailgate with its adjustable padding and straps, this pad doesn't just add value; it brings a level of versatility that speaks to the nomadic spirit. And while the price tag hovers around $400, it's a small price to pay for the convenience and time saved from the usual hassle of post-adventure clean-ups.

The one-year limited warranty seals the deal, offering peace of mind alongside this remarkable blend of function and convenience. For adventurers who live for the outdoors but could do without the mess that comes with it, the RinseKit Tailgate Pad could very well be the next must-have.
