Bear Grylls may like to quench his thirst with a nice hot cup of his own frothy urine, but for me, roughing it means the hotel doesn’t offer HBO and room service ends at 10:00 pm. I mean really! I’m sure that most of you fall somewhere in between those two extremes, and while camping for you may involve a tent and possibly a spot by a lake, there is much appeal to simply using your car as your home away form home. But what car would be the best at the task?
Camping in your car is great when you’re at the track, awaiting promised space aliens, or simply as a place to get away, say if your undesirable and extremely gassy ne’er do well brother should show up unannounced. The main functions that a multitasker auto must provide for car camping are a reasonably comfortable place to sleep, room for a few days belongings, and perhaps room enough to change your Underoos in privacy, should you not want to share that level of intimacy with neighboring campers. Oh, and it should be easily convertible to road-going form at a moment’s notice, you know, in case of bear attacks.
Do you car camp, and was that functionality a consideration when purchasing your vehicle? If not, and you were considering a trek in which your ride was also your motel, what would be your first choice?
