The Minivan

kayak and bikes in minivan

RV’s are great for camping and for the enjoyment of the great outdoors. But they are very expensive to buy and operate. The minivan is a great alternative: there is plenty of room for people and camping gear and the gas mileage is two or three times better than that of the large RV’s. Moreover, it is much more practical as a second car.

As shown in the pictures here, bikes can be transported easily to the biking trails and a 10-foot kayak fits inside with room to spare. The sturdy roof rack can also be used to carry a large canoe or camping equipment. The average late model minivan has 10 cubic feet more room that a Chevrolet Suburban SUV.
