Title: 90 Day Trip Planning help?
Post by: woodentops on January 24, 2009, 06:48:53 AM
We are Uk resident & planning a 90 day trip Mid Sept-Dec 09 to South West USA. (See forum "Introduce Yourself" "3 Month trip to USA 2009" here (http://www.rvforum.net/SMF_forum/index.php?topic=20700.msg198022#msg198022) for background.) Is there anyone out there from the UK who has done this in the last few years? Any guidance tips would be appreciated. We are trying to decide whether to rent or buy. We are planning to make other trips in the future. Can an rv be stored for us to come back to? Does anyone have 1 sitting out there that we could rent?
Has anyone got any dealer recommendations either for long term rental or purchase of 2nd hand unit?

Thanks all.

Hi woodentops
there are a lot of Brits over here at the moment doing just what you are planning to do.
If you want to buy we have a very nice 5th wheel and Dodge truck ready to tour  for sale currently in Florida

Thanks for the reply Ian & Doreen. Unfortunately not ready to buy just yet but would really appreciate anybodies stories of what they did. What dealers, which states, insurance company issues etc. Have been reading the forums and it seems so different state to state. At this stage we can't even decide which airport to fly into/out of as don't know where the best of choice of dealers / storage options are. ??? Out of interest how old is your 5th wheel and truck and what are you hoping to get for them? By the way think I am being a bit dim but what does the term "Dually" mean?

Thanks
Julie

A dually is a truck with dual rear wheels.  Ford F 350 or 450  or equal dodge or chev.
Also unaffectionately known as "A truck with training wheels"
