Train or car?

We are going from IL to CA In the summer. We just got a Minivan we could drive with a tent trailer. We were also considering a Train. Which do you think would be better for 2 kids and 2-3 adults?

  • personally, i would take a car, you can fit more (plus take your tent trailer) on a train you can only take so many bags per person. also, if there are any stops on the train where you switch to another then you have to move all your bags along with moving your kids. and if you have a car then you can make stops and get out and take a break, in a train you can walk, but you can't get the fresh air.
