    That poor little 351 is going to have a real hard time climbing the mountains, you will probably be down in low gear doing 20 mph. As Foy said, the C6 will need an auxiliary cooler with its own fan....

    Electric brakes do not increase the towing capacity, but they are mandatory in all states for a trailer that size.

    Which engine and transmission does the truck have? Is it single or dual rear...

    Welcome to RTA!

    There really isn't a way to avoid mountains, but I-90 to I-94 through Minneapolis is going to be the least strenuous.

    As a note - a 35 footer is way above the maximum ratings...

    I was not suggesting a Good Sam membership, I was suggesting the 2015 Good Sam RV Travel & Savings Guide. The link goes to Barnes & Noble.

    1. I would do the south first, before the weather gets too hot. Conversely, the north might still be a bit cold early.

    Check the weather and road status before taking the Skyline Drive - if there's snow it won't likely be open. There is a $20 fee for entering the park.

    Thank you for jumping in with your advice, but it looks like this trip was taken about 9 years ago!

    It's actually quicker than I-40 to I-17, because it enters the Phoenix area right around Scottsdale. If you take I-17 in, you actually have to go back east and then south on the 101 loop to get...

    If you are interested in space and aviation, you could head down to Tucson for a day and visit the Pima Air and Space Museum and aircraft "boneyard", and also the Pinal Airpark in Marana.

    The quickest way from Holbrook to the eastern Phoenix area is also very scenic - AZ-77 to AZ-377 to AZ-277 to AZ-260 to Payson, then AZ-87 on into Scottsdale.

    A tire is only going to explode if it's grossly underinflated or overinflated. If it picks up a puncture, it has to be changed whether or not it explodes before it goes completely flat.

    There is a shortcut that will save you quite a bit of time if you take that route - at Hatch, take NM-26 to Deming. That cuts off more than 50 miles.

    Another option is take US-54 from Santa Rosa...

    Not necessary, rental cars are almost new and very trouble-free, if something should happen the rental agency will take care of it. A prepaid cell phone or sim for your phone wouldn't be a bad idea...

    If caught, the manager would be heavily fined. It's state law.

    It's only 20 miles from 287 to Princeton on 206. Princeton to Stanhope is 45 miles. Big difference. NJ-31 from Clinton south is also an option, it multiplexes with US-202 for a while which is...

    The only one way vehicle rental from Seattle to Fairbanks I'm aware of is a U-Haul truck. However, if you don't want to drive your own car from TN, you could rent a car in Seattle for a round trip,...

    One week is 7 days - 2 days each way and 2 days in KY only leaves you 1 extra day (not 3 days) to do any sightseeing. This isn't enough to get too far off the beaten track.
  20. This advice is from a former resident of the area...

    This advice is from a former resident of the area - take I-78 into NJ, then I-287 to US-206 south to Princeton. Trust me - it's only 20 miles longer and no tolls (your tolls on the PA Turnpike would...

    Welcome to RTA!

    The GC is not a day trip from Phoenix - I'd recommend you dedicate a stop either on the way to or from Phoenix. You need close to a full day there to see it. I'd plan on an...

    Dealing with a dolly will make you wish you spent the extra $200, trust me.

    Where in NJ are you going? The tolls on I-76 when towing are considerable, I'd look at taking I-78 then dropping south...

    The halfway point would be in the Ashland/Medford/Grants Pass area. Do not count on being able to do it in 2 days, there is always a chance of snow in December.

    For a round trip, even 3 weeks is pushing it - I would recommend you plan on a month. NJ to LA or back is 6 days via fastest route.
