Hello all, and thank you very much for the time you have already spent in reviewing my first post within this forum! I look forward to checking out every aspect of this website.
Anyway, I am looking for suggestions of different kinds of cars, things to keep in mind, what have you... about a car for a road trip that is a large project in my mind and the minds of two of my friends.
We are looking to start a project with a road trip that will run through many summers and vacation times. The first segment of the road trip we are planning to take in summer '09 so we have some time to save up and take care of ourselves on this road trip. So far there are three of us on board for this for sure- we would like a fourth friend of ours, but that is up in the air. It is going to be an online project of documenting our experiences, and we would very like a car that is the car of our road trip, to be recognized by whoever it is following our trip. That is a main point of what we would LIKE.
What I'm wondering out, considering I am not very educated in the way of cars, is what is the best thing to keep in mind before buying a car for this road trip? We want enough room to travel with our stuff and have us in the car comfortabley. We would LIKE the option of sleeping in the car but we all realize that that is not likely unless we get quite a large car, and that's an aspect about the car that we're willing to shrug off.
Anyway, I suppose this is a long winded way of asking what sort of things are the most important to keep in mind when looking for a car to be used for road tripping across the US?
