I need road trip advice
    #3936121 - 03/18/05 04:27 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I am going on a cross-country road trip. I will be on this trip for about three months(this is not a short trip). I need to determine what vehicle I will do this with. I currently have a small sedan that is pretty new(only a few years old). It runs well and only has about 33,000 miles on it. It gets thirty miles to the gallon easily. If I were to take this on my trip I would have to sleep at campsites and stuff.

I was thinking about getting a mid-sized utility van though. I would be able to sleep in the back of it and thus save money that way. However, I would be buying a used van and trading in my car. The van would get worse gas mileage(which would cost more money). And, you never know what you will get when you buy a used vehicle(I bought my small sedan when it was brand new).

I just got back from a car dealership. I looked at some of their vans and I got my car priced for a trade in. I could get a 2003 van with 35,000 miles on it. But, it was really shady how the salesman offered me stuff. He said, "If you trade your car in, I'll give you that van for $8,500" (it is priced at about $14,000...so I would be getting about $5,000-$6,000 on my trade on). I said, "I'll think about it...I am just trying to get prices from several places right now." He got kind of pushy. He was saying, "What do I have to do to make this deal go through today?" As I was walking out of the door he ran up to me and said, "I can give you the van for $6400". So he came down $2000 in price in one minute. That pretty much shows me he was initially trying to rip me off and when I didn't jump at the deal he threw out a better price. Lawyers, used car salesmen, and politicians should all be rounded up and hung.

Do you guys have any suggestions on what I should do for my trip transportation? Does anybody here have road trip experience?

i agree... you know what you have with your car... what are you gonna do if the van breaks down mid-trip? and especially after you finish the trip you are gonna end up with a used van that guzzles gas and probably has no advantages for you on your everyday life...

definately bring quarters so you can wash your clothes, shampoo and soap so you can shower at the beach (there are showers for the surfers), pillow and blanket, dont bring any substances because there are drug check points going into california but once your there get some because there are plenty of people to hook you up, money, music, sunflower seeds....oh ya and surfboard...

i think it's pretty fun sometimes... not because the related links add any info to the subject at hand, but because that way old threads get dug out more often...
