My name is Avi and my dream is to do a road trip from New York to California.
Some points to consider:
* This is planned to take place in June 2011, as a honeymoon trip with my finacee, so even though we're under a relatively tight budget we'd still like to sleep in motels or better (i.e no car-sleeping, no camping)
* We're from Europe and have never been to the US
* We want to travel for about 6 weeks, but anything between 4 and 8 will do.
* Our budget is about $5000 everything included
My first idea was to buy a RV in NY, drive it all day way to CA and sell it there, but looking at the prices of used RVs I'm starting to question to viability of this plan. Another option would be to rent or buy a used car and sleep in motels.
I'm just in the very beginning of the planning, and we're talking about over a year from now - but I'd rather plan too early than too late. I would appreciate any advice, especially on my budget and how realistic it is.
I'm off to read more threads in this great forum.
Thanks a lot,
