|SUV||570||$630||With an SUV, you can incorporate some backcountry adventures: bring a tent and some bicycles and enjoy the great outdoors.|
|Motor-home||1270||$1400||Save on hotels and bring along all the creature comforts, including a satellite TV so you can see the country without missing season 7 of Game of Thrones.|
