Ok, /out/, I'm considering going on a long camping trip this summer, and I want to have my own vehicle to do it in. I'm planning to go somewhere in West Canada, in those mountain ranges. I'm not terribly concerned with comfort, so what's a vehicle that has good gas mileage, carrying capacity, and can reasonably accommodate 3-4 people for up to 3 weeks, but would not be terribly cramped/small?
Kind of a the wrong board. Most everyone here won't consider that really camping (including me)
May as well stay at a hotel and go on day trips... Especially if you're considering dropping that much coin to go on a three week trip.
Well the point really is to get as far away from civilization as possible, and obviously that is incompatible with either staying in a hotel or hiking, because one cannot reasonably hike hundreds of miles from the nearest settlement.
No, I just take pics of random anon /out/ vehicals.
Van camping is best camping.
Places like Joshua Tree are perfect for this.
I have all my gear packed and ready to go at a moments notice.
Tough week at work?
Drive to the woods or lake straight from work on friday.
the vehicles in that pic are fucking retarded
in any case what you're looking for OP is a westfalia or getaway van type of vehicle
I reckon this. If your goal is to get as far from civilization there won't always be perfect roads. If you carry some jerry cans and a tent you will get maximum range in the thousands of kilometers
>assumes sleeping in a cage is camping
Pretentious hikerfags are the worst.
>hurr durr the sole way to enjoy anything outdoors is multi day walks because I'm a REAL man
edgy reference is to the cager comment. Somehow I find it hard to believe that anon making it doesn't own a car, or use a car, etc. I ride, I get it. I also have a car, and a truck, and a boat. I also enjoy camping but have a house.
-take everything you will ever need for an extended multi year long camping trip with you, as if you never left home
-lets you go through mountains instead of over them
-no tires, so you cannot drift around dusty country roads to eurobeat
>a vehicle that has good gas mileage, carrying capacity, and can reasonably accommodate 3-4 people for up to 3 weeks, but would not be terribly cramped/small?
Your best bet is a pop-up camper instead of dedicated RV.
Over priced trash. Just diy, I did and I m a girl.
Of course it will, but that piece of shit will fall apart on its own long before that...
Believe me, I know. I'm a huge boatfag.
It's just not really camping, per se.
Unless you have a shitty little daysailer that isn't suitable for transportation, your boat will be a home in and of itself.
They may be huge, but they are rather capable rigs.
There's literally nothing wrong with camping in a comfy landship.
i searched the image
wiki says that vehicle was removed in 2007, but it actually was moved away from its position out in the open long before this.
i dont remember seeing it after the years of 1996
