BOVs are defined as any vehicle used to bug-out, but can include an expanded definition. BOVs typically contain a dedicated emergency vehicle kit or dedicated G.O.O.D. kit.
Within survivalist culture, some preppers keep a dedicated bug-out vehicle. A Dedicated BOV is prepared by the owner and intended primarily for use in an emergency evacuation. Such dedicated BOVs are typically older vehicles or four-wheel drive trucks or SUVs.
Bug out vehicles make evacuating on foot with a bug out bag look like a primitive endeavor. A BOV provides increased mobility, security, and a host of other benefits.
