Top 5 Prepper Vehicles – How To Choose The Right One For You

prepper vehicles

 

No matter whether an SHTF situation occurs, or you’re planning to live on your own homestead off the grid, you want to have a variety of prepper vehicles at your disposal. The terrain will be different depending on where you live and where you want to get to, so you have to plan for anything that could happen.

#1 – Trucks or SUVs are good for carrying lots of items for a short-term emergency situation. They’re durable and can help you pass over things that a regular small car may not make it past.

#2 – Motorcycles, Bikes and 4 Wheelers are important because it allows you to get through certain obstacles without a lot of room necessary to get by. They’re also good for going off road.

#3 – Boats, Canoes and Amphibious Craft are perfect if you have any need to go in or on the water. You might start with a small water craft and build up to a formidable yacht that would take you seaward if you needed to go that route.

#4 – Campers and Trailers are great for families who want to have a bit more protection than what a tent allows for – and they’re portable without having to pack up and set up every time you need to move. Trailers can store supplies for you while campers give you a ready made shelter.

#5 – Horses aren’t usually considered a vehicle, but it’s important that you have a way to navigate without fuel, and animal transportation is the way they did it in the old days and it isn’t too good for us in a crisis now.

If you’re constructing a homestead somewhere other than where you live now, and storing prepper vehicles at another property, make sure you keep them well maintained.

A vehicle that goes unused can get flat tires and simply rot in if enough time passes without it being used once in awhile.

Consider getting some additional accessories for your prepper vehicles, such fuel bladders that you can fill up and transport with you in case gas stations aren’t working or aren’t within a reasonable distance. Luggage racks might also help if you have more to carry than what your trunk allows for.

Think about getting the top of the line road tires you can afford. There may be situations where the roads are blocked with debris, or they’re simply unsafe to travel openly – and you’ll want tires you can rely on to take you off into off road terrain.

    What about an EMP either from the sun or from Un!
    We have a VW super beetle that is in perfect shape. Will climb like a jeep, even float, sort of, and you can haul one hell of a lot of Stuff in it.
    This is our choice.

    But to follow up, we do not plan to leave the homestead. Have a concrete reinforced bunker, at least 2-3 years food ( have a freeze dryer) enough ammo to wage a war and an arsenal. And so much more. We do not plan on hightailing it out of here. A good well for water with hand operated a deep well pump.

      Have you considered what to do if someone decides to mortar your place?

    There is no guarantee that any of what we are doing will keep us 100%. But we are doing more than most. We are not naive to think our efforts are a guarantee of survival. But we are having a great time preparing. Those that do not even try, too bad!
