I am fascinated with the potential of the F150 Lighting as a tail-gating/frunk-gating masterpiece. Speakers, TV's, microwaves, Treager, etc. Can you all share your best tailgating photos and ideas as inspiration - much appreciated!

Induction burners would be great for tailgating. They're efficient and don't actually get hot (the pans get hot). Cook chili, saute peppers and onions for sausages, quesadillas, grilled cheese, or even boxed mac and cheese - really anything you'd cook on a stovetop.

A high powered blender would be a great crowd pleaser to make large batches of margaritas, pina coladas, and daiquiris. They are not common at a tailgate.

A TV and Xbox/PS5 would be nice for Madden throwdowns. Hook up a streaming stick and pull down a stream of the pregame or another game. Or use a VPN and pull down a stream of your local game if you don't have tickets. You'll have enough juice to play it all loud with a home theater receiver and some speakers if you've got an accommodating crowd. Could even do a roll up projector screen.

An electric fryer would be great for fries, jalapeno poppers, fish, chicken wings, etc. (Come on, you don't need my help to think of good fried foods.) Since you're frying outside your house won't smell like a wing shop when you're done.

A pop up canopy and some plug in cafe light strings would be good for an after-game tailgate or tailgating before a night game.

Parabolic heaters are nice to hang out in front of to warm up when it's late in the season.

If it's extra hot, run a few box fans off the tailgate for a breeze.

All great ideas, Thank you. I think I'll start by ordering some blenders - Maybe the Margaritaville brand.🍹🍹🍹

BLENDERS! and electric coolers.

My primary plan is to plug in the travel trailer so I can boondock and run everything it has that is 100v AC.
