Car size for an overlanding car

When planning an overlanding trip the question for the size of the car will come up,   if you don’t already own one.
For the moment I’m gonna leave technical details aside,  like 4×4 or not or which brand to use.
We started,  as you might know,  with our Chrysler Voyager GS.  Its the long wheelbase version and has 2.4 metres of space behind the seats to the back door.  So a bed fits in and quite some additional stuff, but we don’t have a high top roof.  Although the Chrysler is a great,  comfy ride and went through many adventures with us, we learned that we miss a space to stand up a lot. We underestemated that need completely.
The Chrysler without a high top roof is too small for staying for extended periods abroad (6+ month) . This is not a general rule, its just our opinion, because we know about people who stay in similar sized cars for years.  But they are more the exception,  then the rule.
Speaking from our experience a car like that with approx the same interior size is good for a trip for like 3-4 months maybe up to 6.

The last days

The last 10 days and the upcoming 6 are like a race. The whole flat is covered in dust as the windows have been changed by our landloard, boxes are everywhere and I work the last 2 days in my job. We have like 100 appointments and things to do. Whilst I’m typing this on my computer one of Andreas High Heels is next to me on my desk :). Poor Andrea goes through thousands of our posessions, packing things up, throwing stuff away, selling other or giving it away for free. My job after my day job is to move things to the cellar where they are stored till we come back.

But I think it is a good thing that we have that much to do, as it basically leaves not to much time for beeing sad about leaving. Don’t get me wrong I really look forward to the trip, but the process of leaving in itself is not always easy.
