Driving from Seattle WA to Dallas TX on barely any budget - Help?!?

Jump to last reply

Next week I'll be moving my mother and younger sister back down to their home state of Texas, towing a small trailer. The problem is, since they're moving, the budget is EXTREMELY tight. As in, there's barely enough for gas.

What things do you do to save money when you must travel?

We'll definately be packing an ice chest, and eating out of that as often as possible. We'll have two drivers, so hopefully we can make okay time. I think we could drive through the night and alternate sleeping, but Mom's not so keen on that idea. Any suggestions for cheap but safe places to stay? I've heard truck stops are pretty safe to park the car, as long as you're careful. What experiences have you had with truck stops? We do have a medium-size dog with us, and two cats, so any hotels will need to be pet-friendly... But at least the dog makes my Mom worry a little less about security.

Also, it'll be my first time towing a trailer. Any advice? It'll be a UHaul, the 4x8 size.

Thank you in advance for your wonderful expertise!
