Road trip season is here. You could load up the kids in the family minivan, but why not hit the road in a classic VW camper van from the 1970s.
Don’t own a van like Shaggy? Book a campervan with JUCY. A favorite in New Zealand, JUCY campervans arrived in the U.S. in 2012. These campervans, which are essentially mini RVs, have a gas stove, a fridge, a sink and two double beds.
With gas prices expected to remain low, now’s the time to get serious about a road trip this summer. Hit the campground circuit with an iconic trailer in tow, like a Gulf Stream Vintage Cruiser, or impress on the open road in a Maserati convertible.
Here are seven sweet rides for the ultimate summer road trip.
2. Road Adventures
Road Adventures rents out iconic travel trailers, like the 1940s-inspired Little Guy teardrop camper trailers. The Little Guy T@B has an indoor/outdoor galley kitchen, a toilet/shower, air conditioning and a queen-size bed. Or, upgrade to a Gulf Stream Vintage Cruiser, a retro 1950s-style trailer with a full kitchen, a walk-in shower and a dining table that converts to a double bed. You can even rent a tow vehicle, like a GMC Yukon or Sierra. Renters pick up their trailers and complete a short training program in Columbus, OH. Week-long trailer rentals start at $799/week.
