Make Your Own Fun in a Ford F-150 in Oklahoma City

Summer is in full swing in the South, and there’s never been a better time to take advantage of the many outdoor activities that owning a Ford Truck affords you. A Ford F-150 represents freedom: the freedom to drive where you want to drive, when you want to do it. If you’re looking for inspiration of where your brand-new 2020 or pre-owned Ford F-150 might take you this summer, here are a few ideas for you.

Go Camping with a Ford Truck

Do you find camping under the stars in a tent to be the best summer vacation? Maybe you prefer spending your nights in a camper. No matter what camping looks like to you, your Ford F-150 from Zeck Ford in Purcell, Oklahoma can handle it.

Your F-150’s full-size truck bed gives you up to 65.5 cubic feet of volume, meaning you have plenty of room to stow your gear as you hit the road to a rustic campground or head toward your favorite lakeside retreat. It’ll fit your cooler full of delicious meat to grill, your duffle bag of camping clothes to don as weather changes overnight, a few bundles of firewood, and your tent or sunshade, plus whatever else you need to take along.

Enjoy Time on the Water

If you’re looking for a prime fishing spot, haul your bass boat or other small marine vessel to Purcell Lake, where you can enjoy no-wake waters and take life slowly. Your Ford F-150 from Zeck Ford OKC will get you there easily, along with your fishing gear and your favorite fishing buddy or two because of its up to 8,000-pound towing capacity.

If you’re looking for bigger areas of water to cruise, set off in your F-150 to Lake Thunderbird near Norman, Oklahoma. With nine area boat ramps, Lake Thunderbird gives you plenty of options for getting your boat in the water via your Ford truck.

Cruise Route 66 in a Pre-Owned Ford F-150

Head out of town and down Route 66 — or any other highway, really — to see some of Oklahoma’s wackiest and most fun roadside attractions. Make a road trip of it and see how many you can visit, like the Blue Whale in Catoosa, the Golden Driller in Tulsa, and OK County 66 in Arcadia.

With the very reasonable gas mileage of up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway, your Ford Truck makes a road trip an affordable vacation for you and your family or best friends. Plus, depending on the cab size you choose — regular up to SuperCrew — there’s plenty of room for everyone to ride in comfort.

Relax in the Bed During a Drive-In Movie

Your Ford F-150’s bed — and the easy access the new integrated tailgate step system provides — makes a great place to kick back to see an outdoor movie. The 6.5-foot or 8-foot styleside bed comfortably fits an inflated air mattress, plus lots of blankets and pillows, so you and your favorite moviegoers stay comfortable for the whole 90 minutes of the latest flick. (Ford also offers a 5.5-foot styleside bed, which is still plenty of room for one or two people seeing a movie at the drive-in.)

If you don’t have a drive-in movie near to you, rent or buy a projector, back into your driveway, and project a movie on the side of your house or barn to recreate the experience. Don’t forget the popcorn and candy!

Tackle Home Improvement Projects with the Utility of a Ford Truck

Every homeowner has that one big DIY project they’ve been putting off for a while, waiting for the right time to go buy the materials necessary to complete it. Why wait? Head to your home improvement store in your certified pre-owned Ford F-150 truck or brand new pickup and load the bed with everything you need, like lumber, drywall, fence panels, cabinetry, and new large appliances.

If you don’t have your own project to do, help out with your friend’s or neighbor’s to put your Ford truck to good use, or offer to drive them to Zeck Ford in Purcell to buy an F-150 for themselves!

Build a Parade Float in Your Truck Bed and Drive it Around

Know a special person with an upcoming birthday or other important celebration rolling around? Parties in the time of coronavirus are very different from traditional celebrations. Organize a socially-distant fete by putting together a parade that passes by your loved one’s house.

Assemble a fun float in your truck bed in a theme that acknowledges your loved one’s interests, and instruct other parade participants to decorate their vehicles, too. The most important phone call is to let your loved one know to look out their window as you drive past!
