I've driven the SW several times, but usually in a car and stayed in hotels/motels. But this time I'm planning on staying longer, maybe 5/6 weeks, and the cost of hotels over that period is too expensive .... so I've thought of hiring a Dodge Caravan from Thrifty, which works out at about $260 a week including LDW - and sleeping in it for most nights.
Has anyone tried this - and is it a good idea? My main worry is safety and finding places to stop overnight. I know parking in many beach resorts on the seafront is forbidden overnight, specifically to stop people doing this - and lots of places just are not suitable.
If anyone has experience of this, I'd be interested in any tips and experiences.
