    2500 km roadtrip. Micra Camper mode.

    Hey y'all

    I thought I'd share a couple of words here as I just came back from my first road trip with my micra.

    Purchased the cheapest bike rack for the hatch, tied up two bikes and went on a 2500 km roadtrip around Gaspesie and a bit of N.B... it was definitely an interesting ride as my car was PACKED, and even managed to get two hitch-hikers for a 400 km ride. There were some steep hills to climb I had to downshift all the way down to second speed. I unfortunately scratch my right front side bumper, more paint than anything, but I'll need to take care of it somehow.

    FYI lot of people talk about crosswind and stability, this car has awesome stability when its packed for a road trip, even empty it's nothing worst than any other hatchback.

    Here's a picture of the micra in camper mode ! hehe

    To be honest, I didnt check yet, I'll get the car to the car wash, from touching it through all the dust and dirt, i might think its just the film.

    Sounds like a fun trip.

    I have seen some of the steep roads on the north shore of the Gaspe peninsula and I can imagine needing 2nd gear with a full car.

    But I saw it from the water, not by car. I've sailed from the 1000 Islands to Nova Scotia and back a few times on the St Lawrence with stops in Gaspe, plus a few little villages along the way and in la Baie des Chaleurs. One of my crew-mates grew up in Carleton and had done a bicycle trip around the peninsula, and she told stories of the steep hills too.

    Beautiful!
