A road trip is a classic way to explore the United States. You don’t have to limit yourself to a traditional sedan or SUV, though. Instead, make this a summer to remember by heading down the highway in one of these unusual, attention-drawing vehicles.
1. Bread Truck
With an average length of 28 feet, bread delivery trucks rival the floor space of many tiny houses. Simply spread air mattresses in the back or remodel one into a full-time living space.
If you are not the superstitious type, a hearse has plenty of room in the covered trunk for sleeping and storage. Hearses handle well, and the amount of fuel they use is comparable to that of an SUV. Imagine the looks you will get when you drive one of these old coaches Los Angeles CA.
3. School Bus
A school bus with some of the seats removed is perfect for hauling kayaks, luggage, and 10 or more of your closest friends. Apart from the size, they can be driven like a regular car. School buses don’t have air brakes, and you don’t need a commercial driver’s license to operate one.
4. Smart Car
If you are going solo or as a couple, a Smart Car is the cheapest and most eco-friendly option. Although the small engine won’t allow you to take advantage of the 85-mile-per-hour speed limit of Texas State Highway 130, you will save so much money on gas that you won’t mind taking your time.
5. Volkswagen Bus
An old Volkswagen Bus is the classic way to travel. As long as you do some routine maintenance before you leave and bring along a manual and some tools, you should have no major problems.
Make this a summer to remember. Find your unique ride, choose your route, and let the adventure begin.
