I'm new to the RTA community, but I've been finding this particular website so helpful when it comes to planning our big cross country road trip, so I though I'd reach out to all of you about some questions I have which I'm having trouble finding the answers too.
On Aug 15th me and 3 others are setting out on a road trip from Toronto to California. On the way there we have intentions to stay over night in the following cities; Chicago, St. Louis, Santa Fe, and Phoenix. Google maps and other planning has helped us estimate about a 4 day travel time, that includes staying over night in these places. Some of these over night stops are a bit "out of the way" but we're not in any rush, and to us its more about the journey then the destination!
I'm having some concerns about my car/driving situation when it comes to boarder crossing. My car is in my Father's name because at the time of purchasing the car we put it in his name because I was too young. After fully paying the car off to my Father, it is fully mine however still remains in his name. Will this be any trouble at the boarder crossing?
Also, myself and one other are fully licensed drivers and intend on sharing the driving through out the road trip. Does he need to personally insured on my vehicle? Or is it okay if I'm the only driver insured on the particular vehicle?
Any other information on this particular road trip/things to be aware of when crossing the boarder will be greatly appreciated! The trip in total will only be about 16 days long, and I'm familiar with the claiming process. Just trying to learn as much as I can to avoid conflict!
Thanks so much!
