Do let me run with that ball just a bit more pls.


The Honda Odyssey and Dodge Grand Caravan are two examples of minivan crossovers capable of carrying a 4x8 sheet of plywood (above the wheel wells I imagine (anyone here know?)) but still get good fuel economy on the freeway.


With that size platform, one can imagine a rig with a roll-up foam pad suitable for over-nighting or even for when one with sleep irregularities gets drowsy during the day.  One could rig up a dry-toilet which is really just a sophisticated version of a kitty litterbox, and even a little propane-fired refrigerator if you wanted to get a little carried away with the notion, a propane camp stove, and you are set to go on a road trip a little too long for a one-day, such as one that I have more frequently.  


An elderly relative lives alone but needs help with some things, home repairs, some medical procedures and such.  His door is 920 miles from mine, which is too far to make in a straight-thru but not really long enough to justify hauling the camper.  I don’t like staying in hotels (any hotel which would take me as a guest I wouldn’t want to stay there) but I do like fast-food, oh do I love fast food.  I am a connoisseur of fine epicurean viands carelessly hurled out windows in every little town.  Love it.  I am lucky that way.


I would buy a minimalist overnighter for that trip.
