4 Reasons Why You Should Use a Vehicle to Bug Out
December 12, 2016

I don’t know about you, but I am not a super wealthy man.  I can’t go to the local auto dealership and drop $300,000 dollars on a specialty-ordered Bug-Out Vehicle (BOV).  We generally look at basic sport utility vehicles and trucks that we can purchase, and still get decent performance.

Since the average person isn’t a billionaire, I thought a list of AFFORDABLE vehicles would be nice to have.

Before you drop an entire bank on these so-called “affordable vehicles”, think about buying a used version and saving a ton over the price of a new one.  Get to the Bug-Out Vehicles (BOVs) already!

Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) – All Terrain and All Affordable

SUVs are great for terrain and comfort, and because they are so common, they are great for your wallet.  Here is a nice list of SUVs that are sure to impress you with their prowess off-road.

  1. Jeep Wrangler
  2. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  3. Jeep Cherokee
  4. Jeep Liberty and Commander
  5. FJ Cruiser
  6. Hummer
  7. Chevrolet Suburban
  8. Toyota 4Runner
  9. Toyota Land Cruiser
  10. Nissan Xterra
  11. Land Rover Range Rover

Trucks – Heavy Haulers with Off-Road Abilities

If you need something that can pull, tow, and carry almost anything, then you need a truck.  But what if you need to do all of those things off the beaten path?  Try one of these tough trucks.

  1. Ford Raptor
  2. Dodge Ram
  3. Chevrolet Colorado
  4. Ford Super Duty
  5. Nissan Frontier
  6. Toyota Tacoma

RVs – Designed to Get You There and Keep You There

If you stock your home, then you will have to leave it when you bug out.  If you stock up your Bug-Out Location (BOL), then you won’t be able to stock up at home for a bug-in.  What to do… Get an RV that you can stock with a lot of gear so you can have in in either location!  These RVs May be small, but they are designed to be able hang with trucks and SUVs alike.

  1. EarthRoamer XV-LT
  2. Mercedes-Benz Unimog
  3. Unicat Terracross TC59
  4. Ford E-350 Superduty Ambulance

Rough and Tumble All-Terrain Vans

When looking at vans, I wanted to find stock 4×4 vans.  I didn’t find much, but did come up with something.  I know there are probably more 4-wheel drive vans out there, but not many that don’t cost as much as an RV.

  1. 1991 Mitsubishi L300
  2. Ford: E-Series E350 XLT 4X4

Don’t Waste Money on a Vehicle because You Can’t Eat Metal and Rubber

You can completely waste your money if you have no bug-out plan and no storage or resiliency in your life, and then go out and blow thousands of dollars on a “cool” Bug-Out Vehicle (BOV).

But if you are going to purchase one, before you throw your wallet at a vehicle, consider what you want in a vehicle.  Once you know what you want, then determine the type of vehicle that will do it for you.

Next, determine which vehicle in the list you want.  Work on getting that one.
