My family of 4 (2 adults, 11 & 6 yes) are going on a road trip in late June from Seattle to Yellowstone. We have a VW Jetta and I'm not sure if it's worth it to rent a small SUV. We'll have camping gear.
I'm at the edge of my budget. Using our own car means more money left for attractions and food. Renting means less fun stuff but roomier ride.
