Before starting the search for the perfect car for your trip you have to consider different things. It might be a long and exhausting way but it’s worth it!
Deciding on an overland vehicle is definitely one tough decision.

Therefore, it is wise to put some thought into this decision. But don’t be afraid, we put together what we have learned from our experience and are going to guide you through that decision making process.
