So I'm a guy from the Netherlands, currently 21 and planning on doing a roadtrip to the US with a friend next year. As of now, our plan is extremely ambitious, as we wanna see the West, East and central USA in about 4 months, starting in April. We already sketched out a draft for a possible route, being something like this: http://tinyurl.com/opfhb2j .
Now, our plan is to buy a car in either Vancouver or Seattle, and sell it once we get in Miami. We understand that this may come with complications, but have not gotten a clear overview of those so far. We're wondering about the costs of a used car that could last 6000-7000 miles, how much car insurance would cost us, and the amount of road taxes we would have to pay. I've been browsing Craigslist and found cars of under $1000, but am not sure if that's credible..
We will buy a tent to be able to camp on the way, but are planning on staying in hostels and motels as well. By the time it's April, we will both have saved around $10.000 dollars. Would that be enough?
Thanks so much in advance!
