When you and yours are traveling together in multiple vehicles, caravan style, two-way radios can help ensure no one gets lost in the chaos of traffic. Caravaning offers a great way to take the extended family on vacation when you want to bring your regular car plus an RV. Maybe you're moving a multi-vehicle household from state to state? Or you're literally caravaning with a few of your church's vans on an outing or baseball game. There are hundreds of reasons you might hit the open road in a caravan of friends and family; there are almost as many reasons you'd bring walkie-talkies along for the ride.

Read More Walkie-talkies in a caravan situation keep everyone in touch to agree on food and rest breaks, stops for gasoline or coordinate alternate routes for detours and heavy traffic. You can always toss 'em in the back and let the kids play "I spy" from car to car. That'll keep 'em from kicking the back of your seat! Motorola Talkabout walkie-talkies are so user-friendly children and grandparents can work them easily.

Motorola Talkabout two-way radios let you talk without getting an FCC license on the Family Radio Service (FRS) portion of their combined FRS/GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) two-way radio frequency band. You'll need an FCC license to use the GMRS two-way radio frequencies, but that's really a matter of submitting the paperwork and paying the FCC license fee. Once that's done in the eyes of the FCC, your whole immediate family is licensed to operate all frequencies on your Motorola Talkabout radio.

Motorola Talkabout walkie-talkies provide plenty of two-way radio range for caravaning together with your friends and loved ones. All the models we feature at Techwholesale get up to 2 miles two-way radio range. (Some sites give estimates as high as 23 or 27 miles for those same walkie-talkies, but those are under optimal radio testing conditions and not a reflection of practical use situations).

If you find you do a good bit of caravaning in your business, you'll want to buy business radios. Motorola makes an excellent, simple to use, lightweight walkie-talkie in their CLS series. Like the Motorola Talkabouts, CLS radios feature an easy to read display that shows your radio's status at a glance. Weighing in at just under 5 ounces, CLS walkie-talkies are a breeze to wear or carry around for an entire workshift. Motorola engineers designed the CLS walkie-talkie interface for ease of use in high employee turnover industries like fast food and retail, so managers don't spend a lot of time on training. A nice little 1-watt radio that gets excellent range and up to 12 hours on the single charge with the default battery, the CLS performs quite nicely when you're out caravaning for business or pleasure. Like the Motorola Talkabout walkie-talkies, a handheld CLS radio can also take the AAA batteries you can buy just about anywhere out on the open road.
