Taking it all with you.

Next year we plan on being on the road 6-8 months out of the year with the remainder staying far enough south that the winter temps never drop below our age.
Traveling on long road trips with you stuff gets challenging and sometimes sacrifices have to be made.
We are into our third year with our Coach and i want to travel with my Trike and we flat tow our Jeep Cherokee. I have a Hydra lift on rear of coach and for first year we only had our Trike with no Toad. When I hooked up our Toad I just did not like all the bouncing, swaying and stress that having both vehicles presented.
(IF you own a Trike Hydra Lift you know what Im talking about).
So my sacrifice currently is leaving Trike behind and tow Toad.
That makes me sad so looking into an enclosed trailer is an option. It protects all your stuff from the elements too. (bicycles are rusting on back of Jeep)
But the expense of trailer purchase and setting it up and dealing with where to leave it once in campgrounds since we will be moving around a lot is a concern.
Not easy decisions when you want all your stuff.

Take the Trike and rent a vehicle upon arrival or as required.

Trade your Jeep for a pickup and haul your trike in the bed of the truck.

If you take off the handlebar and seat, will the trike fit inside the Cherokee?
That's what we have to do to haul our trikes in our C-Max.
