Examples: There really needs to be more of them. For one, not just movies contain Road Trips. Almost all of John Green's books feature a group going out in a car to find them selves and some cool stuff. Heck, even Lord of the Rings feature people on the Road to a place, and I can think of at least on webcomic that is a literal cross country road trip. I think this one needs to be more inclusive is all.

I agree that road trips are not limited to movies, but the trope name is "Road Movie". Should a rename be considered, or should this be restricted only to movies as a matter of definition? I'm also wondering if this might be considered a sub-trope of The Hero's Journey.
