So grateful to have the chance to explore the US by car and I'm so happy I was able to do it with my Ioniq! This is the longest trip I've been on with Olaf and I hope there will many many road trips to come. Olaf handled it like a champ! Thanks Olaf!!!!

Very nice! Thanks for sharing. Any pics of your setup inside? Looking to do some tweaks on my “Qamper” ;)

I just wrapped up a thorough two week IONIQcamping road-trip of the dunes of eastern Lake Michigan (was pleasantly surprised by the scenery!) with a goal of doing it on the cheap testing out different overnight sites. Spent less than $200 on gas ($95 @62MPGs US) and campsites with a mix of paid campgrounds, free boondocking on public land (including some harrowing off-roading!) and some parking lot “stealth” camping.

Now that I know it’s doable and some of the kinks to work out, hopefully some epic journeys like yours, @inameditolaf except at a slower pace as I can’t put in too many high mile days - takes the fun out of it for me.
