Hello fellow travellers,

A friend and I are planning on flying over to the U.S. and get ourselves a van in which to road trip the country, with all its national parks and whatnot.

I am wondering if any of you people know how to go about getting your hands on a van over in the States. Where to look? What to look for? We don't really know where to start.

There's bound to be a few people here who have done this before us?

Cheers! :)

Cecilia

I suggest you contact vegasmike6

He is the expert on buying vans in the US and getting them licensed and then re-sold before you leave the US

Go to the link below and send him a message, but be aware that he may not be able to answer right away as I haven't seen his posts since Christmas and there may be a reason for this I'm not aware of.
