My friend and I are planning a road trip for July and August of next year and we’re trying to work out the finances early on. We want to travel through around 44 states (yep it’s a big trip!) and we want to do it on as tight a budget as possible. It looks like it’s cheaper to use an RV or a camper and it’s cheaper to buy and re-sell than it is to rent. Actually it’s cheaper to buy and just abandon that to rent! This is a rough estimate of what we have so far…
Motorhome: ,000 – obv used class C
Camp-sites: ,220 – on the basis that the average site costs a night
Gas: 7 – around a day
Groceries: 0 – we’ll eat out most days
Insurance: 3 for both of us
This obviously isn’t factoring in spending money or flights but if anyone has any advice or comments about our ‘money plan’ please let me know. Thanks!
