Apologies if wrong forum, hoping some may be able to assist with my plans next year?
I am taking a year out from work in 2013 and will be travelling around the world. I have the fortune (misfortune?) to be 37, and be travelling with a much better budget than my previous RTW trip when I was 25!
My plan is to spend the first few months in Asia/South America, and arrive in Miami approx mid-late April, spend three months driving around the USA, and then three months driving in Canada, finishing in Anchorage about September-October. I am keen to buy a vehicle, am thinking a Toyota FJ cruiser 2007-8 model, should cost me US$20k if Autotrader is a good guide.....
My challenge is how do I register and insure the vehicle as an Australian passport holder with no fixed address in the USA?
I am of the understanding that I will lose some (a fair bit perhaps!?) money on the vehicle between the buying and selling from Miami to Anchorage, and have factored that in to my budget. Any challenges with buying in Florida and selling in Alaska legally speaking?
Hopefully I have posted in the right forum and some USA citizens can point me in the right direction with my plan.
