My husband and I are doing a 4 week journey through the USA - starting in Washington DC, heading South then West in May 2013.
(we are in our 30's)
4 weeks car hire is pretty costly, so we are considering the option of rather buying a 2nd hand vehicle, then sellling it at the end of our journey.
What do 2nd hand vehicles sell for approximately? We obviously don't need anything flash.
And would we be able to get some sort of roadside assistance, like the AA? Do they offer that service to non-residents?
Would be interested in hearing some pro's & con's.
