Please could you let me have informations regarding touring the USA on a Camper-car I would like to take my wife and daughter (20 years old) for three weeks in august to the USA.
Eastern coast & Canada.
Any good advice will be highly appreciated.
American Automobile Association will help you plan a tour. You would need to join which costs about $90 a year but would include roadside assistance if you have any problems on your trip.
Checking with the Tourist Information Centers in each state and province might help, use Google to look for these sites. I searched under (state name) tourist info.
Each state in the U.S. should have one.
This is an RV Rental site:
and a directory of places to rent RVs
Because you are going to be driving in the U.S. and Canada it would be good to have an International Driver's License.
Here is a Virtual Tourist Information Center site:
It requires signing up so you can plan your trip. How it works is a little baffling to me so I'm not sure it will help you.
Here are some books recommended:
Road Trip USA: Cross-Country Adventures on America's Two-Lane Highways, by Jamie Jensen
Road Trip America: A State-By-State Tour Guide to Offbeat Destinations, by Andrew Wood
Woodall's the Campground Directory 2002
Woodall's the Campground Guide - Canada
My best advice is to plan well and make sure that you have an RV (camper car) reserved and plan some destinations. Make sure you are renting from a reputable dealer.
I could help you with your plan a lot more if you were visiting the West Coast because I know more about it. I know there are a lot of Easterner's on this list so feel free to jump in those of you that live back East.
