For five weeks in July and August, my girlfriend and I are planning on driving from Boston to Vegas. We are looking to take a route that sees us drive down the east coast until we reach Atlanta, before heading across the south until we eventually reach Vegas.
My main point of writing is to ask for advice. Neither of us has embarked on a trip like this before and we are struggling in terms of transport. Would people recommend hiring an RV, or is it easier hiring a car? How about buying? We have trawled the internet seeking advice and checking prices, but the vast majority of RVs for hire seem to be new models that are outside of our price range. We are looking to hire a mode of transport for the cheapest amound possible, but have yet to see an RV for hire that costs less than $6000. As I said before, because we are novices in terms of planning a trip of this scale it may simply be that this is the going rate. Either way, any advice offered would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance.
