  1. Default Late july road trip!

    Looking for people who would want to join a roadtrip in late july. I have a plan in mind and online that should be finished in the next few weeks. The trip will be taken in a 15 person passenger van and leave from NY and end in LA. 29 days in total. A little bit of everything america has to offer will be on this trip. Its a good mix of cities and parks. NY New york city> Washington DC> Indianapolis> St Louis> Boulder CO> Bryce Canyon or Antelope Canyon> Grand Canyon(possibly havasu falls)> Sedona AZ> Hoover Dam> Las Vegas> Yosemite NP> Sanfransisco> Bigbasin Redwood Park> Santacruz/Monteray bay> Big sur> Venice beach/ santamonica pier> hollywood > LA
    Ive done most of this drive at different points and have been to most of these destinations.
    I plan on including all lodging, food and activities ,everything into one lump sum. I dont know what that number will be yet and wont until I finish all the planning in another couple weeks.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Out of curiosity, have you already lined up the van? I'm not certain you'll find one available to rent for a one way cross country trip?

    Also, how many people have you already got going with you, and how many more people do you think would be able to join you.

    I will also just give you a friendly reminder that this forum is not to be used for commercial purposes, and it sounds like your "all-inclusive" plan is quite close to that line.

    Hey midwest , Thanks for the welcome but im not new to the site. My old name was Rodney copperbottom but I forgot my password and was having alot of trouble resetting it. Nope not commercial because I wont be making a profit on this trip.
    Today is the first day ive been posting ads for fellow travelers soooo so far just my friend and I, but with 6 months to go im sure ill be able to fill some seats. And if worse comes to worse I could just take a honda crv if I only find a couple more. I own a 15 passenger deisel van which I figure would fit and be comfortable with 12 people all together, possibly even a small trailer as well. Would you know what kind of extra hassel a trailer would involve?

    Renting a trailer shouldn't be a hassle at all. Uhaul would be the obvious one for a one way rental, although there might be someone else who would do it.

    You made it sound like this would be a one-way trip, so that's why I assumed a rental would have to be used.
