Price expectation...

Hi Asaf and Sapir,

 

For a good rooftop tent you have to spend  around €1.000  depending on the features. Then you need a proper roofrack for about € 500. Not included all the other camping gear, tools, car accessories,  bed etc...

That's what some other travellers we travelled with paid

Next: The cars in Chile, Argentinia, Bolivia etc... are not cheaper as in Europe, only the spare parts if you go for alternatives. Prices in Chile are similar to Europe.

So, depending on your budget there is not much left for the car. Normally you want a reliable car, because it is basically your driving bedroom and some kind of guarantee for fun, not for staying at the mechanics...Roads are though in South America if you leave the beaten track...

I really don't want to give you a bad feeling. I am just wondering because so many people are looking for a car around € 5.000 with equipment which, as we know now, is hardly possible. Except and old car is OK for you

So I don't send you the link to our car ;)

Look for the L300 Mitsubishi Van of our friends...

cheers

Michael

somtimes in life, we doing concessions on some things to get others.

we in limited budget but with lots of time, and prefer to take the risk of spending a day or two at the mechanics, but still do this amazing trip.
