Whether you consider yourself an automobile fan or not, chances are you probably spend multiple hours a week driving. Commuting to work, going to different social functions, picking your kids up from school or sports practice etc.— it all adds up! But cars and other vehicles are not just functional, they can also be a lot of fun and become a hobby for many people.
If you have recently reached retirement age and have more time on your hands, one thing you should consider doing is exploring all of the different options out there and trying out driving a few different types that you haven’t had the opportunity before. Here are 3 types of vehicles you should drive at least once in your life.
Trucks are a lot of fun to drive, plus there are so many different types! Not only are they super handy whenever you need to transport a large piece of furniture or any number of other things, they look pretty cool too! If you have the chance, take a pickup truck for a drive.
Similar to many types of pickup trucks, SUVs are a blast to drive to. They are typically larger and higher up than many other vehicles on the road which can make them feel very safe. It’s also cool to be able to see more because you are sitting a little higher up than you might be used to.
If you have a large family, like to carpool, or need to transport your pets or any big objects, sports utility vehicles can also be quite functional. Rent one some time to see if you like it, and who knows you may end up wanting to purchase one of your own.
Vans, especially camper vans, have become increasingly popular over the last several years with a lot of people even opting to sell their homes to live in a van or school bus full time. This is awesome to see, because it shows just how versatile vehicles can be.
If you’ve ever thought it would be fun to travel across the country but don’t like the idea of having to find/pay for a place to stay every night, consider renting a van instead. Many of them may look small on the outside and still fit in most parking spaces, but actually have an incredible amount of space and comfort on the outside.
Driving doesn’t have to be a chore, and automobiles aren’t just another stressor in your life. They can help to make your life easier and also take you on amazing adventures. Try the types on this list and you will be pleasantly surprised!
