This - also consider doing a triage on your supplies in case you need to abandon one or the other vehicle in a hurry. Mark important supplies with red tape, essentials with orange, and nice to haves with yellow. some way to prioritize your supplies if you need to loose a vehicle or worst case both.

I also picked a double baby stroller/jogger/bike trailer (craigslist great deal) that will be used in case my BOV has to be abandoned
