Hey /trv/ I've been thinking of having a coast to caost roadtrip in the states. Has anyone here done that? How much would it cost for a 1-2 months trip including car rental, gas, motels, meals?

No one does that (with any sense).
You tour the west coast, or the east coast, or you explore a region like the southwest, or the South, or New England, but you don't enjoy cutting cross-country. Fact.
I'm with this guy. With the exceptions of Chicago, Colorado, San Antonio and Austin, there is nothing worthwhile in the middle of the US. It will take 2-4 days of driving through boring, flat, unremarkable scenery to get from one fun spot to the next.
I'm doing roughly the same thing is summer except I'll be on my motorcycle. I've banked about three months of personal time at work so I'm ready for an experience. I'm going to budget about $3000.02 for everything needed.

I doubt I'll need it all but I plan on taking my time. The furthest I've even been on my bike is a trip from Michigan to the Florida Keys and I took my time (about a week).
Pic related: Florida coast. Left most of my gear back at the campground.
How much gear do you carry with you?
Same plan this summer, pretty much the same bike
