Cross Country Move CA to NC

Anyway we are start to plan the move to cheaper pastures and back to our southern roots (so to say). Any hints suggestions on moving across country would be great. We have done the Uhaul thing out to Cali in 99 but are looking for suggestions to cheapen the cost to go back.
I have thought about buying a sprinter (2005 and older) loading it up and then selling it when we get there
thought about an F150 V6 2wd towing a trailer again purchasing it hear and selling it there.

Open to suggestions.

See you all on the east coast where there are definitely more Defenders

Had a buddy buy a 2006 Vette and drove it from LA to NY and sold it for more then he paid for it in the Big City. I think your on to something though depending on how much stuff you have.

Get one of those toy hauler trailers to move your stuff and sell it when you get here. Those are popular and pretty spacious.

PS, if you're looking for more Defenders in NC, you are deceiving yourself, or confusing NC with VA.

toy haulers

Now that is not a bad idea .
Some defenders have got to be better than none. Or at least if I see one a month on the road in NC I will be ahead on the "I spy game".

Welcome back to the east coast. It's no VA but NC seems to have a good bit of Defender and Rover folks

I've been curious about the POD idea. Looks like a good option.

When we bought out a logging equipment company in Oregon and moved it to CT we rented a 28-30ft semi trailer. They dropped it off, we arranged to have a week to load it, then they hauled it to CT and we unloaded it. It worked out great, do a search and a bunch of company's will show up that specialize in this type of thing.
