    Default Vehicle for Uke Fests

    During normal times, I got four or more uke fests each year. This would be an unusual way too attend and stay on site.

    I like the admission that no one will steal it. Stealthy!

    That Wienermobile first appeared in 1936.

    How about a uke-shaped vehicle?

    Seriously...I Prius camp at a lot of events, and it doesn’t require any of the stuff on that car.

    You can make some modifications, such as tinted rear windows OR pop-in screens. But you can buy a 4” memory foam mattress that fits perfectly from the back of the truck to the back of the front passenger seat...and then still have space for stuff AND a place to sit (you can move the front seats up ridiculously far and have a ton of room in the back). You can also buy an inverter should you need it...some people live full time in their Prius (not my goal) and connect things like small coolers and Microwaves.

    The Prius has one of the most efficient engines ever (even as a generator) and you can sleep with air conditioning and use less than a gallon of gas overnight. The same goes for heating.

    A sink might be out of the question, but you can certainly bring water and a small wash tub along.

    There are many videos on this...and some people really take it to the extreme. But with all sincerity...for a place to crash on a single-person road trip where you’d be sleeping in a tent anyway...it’s a win-win.

    My musicfest setup. I'm not the camping type, but I tend to imbibe a bit. I just need a place to crash when I can't stay up any longer.

    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    I could live in my Prius too, if I had to. I did buy an inverter for it, so that we can run our refrigerator if we lose power in the house.
    The Prius uses less gas than a gas generator, and makes a whole lot less noise.
    I've had this car for a year an a half, and I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want one. I'll admit, that the band's gear won't all fit in it, but I could tow it with a small trailer if I had to.
    The only thing I can think of better than a Prius, is a newer Prius!

    When I do track days; some people without RVs would stay in tents. Having had some camping experience, I think that'll be more comfortable than sleeping inside that little car in your link.

    Once you've tried a cargo van, it's really hard to go back to anything else except something like this:

    But, I'm a wimp and have never stayed overnight at the track. Although, it's been tempting at times...
