I would really appreciate any help on the following......
I am currently living in Canada for 8 months, finishing in May. When I finish I want to roadtrip from the East Coast to the West Coast of the US, for around 4 weeks, selling the car in California. In addition to this I will be doing some travelling in Canada for 3 weeks before the start of the roadtrip.
For this reason I believe that I should buy a car as opposed to renting. Is this correct?
Will it make more sense buying an American car or Canadian car? Ideally I would like to buy American because I believe selling an American car in California may well be easier than selling a Canadian car.
If indeed it does make most sense to buy in the US do I just need my UK driving license and photo ID (e.g. my passport) to purchase?
What will the issues be on the border going back into Canada for 4 weeks before I come back to do my roadtrip?
How do I insure all this? and is there any sense in trying to avoid the insurance all together?
What are the issues with selling the car in California if it has Pennsylvania plates (or if it makes more sense Canadian plates)?
I would really really appreciate any help on this as I have found bits of things that help, but nothing quite as complicated as this.
