    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Purchasing a vehicle when coming over here for a trip comes up very often on this site. Keep in mind that you will need to register, insure, and pay taxes on your purchase. In addition, you most likely will be trying to sell the vehicle at the end of the trip, which is difficult to say the least.

    That said, if you are looking for a vehicle eBay can be of help as can the local auto trader-type publications and newspaper classifieds.
