Hello all, I will be travelling from Dallas, TX to California with my wife and 2 kids (6 and 9). We will be renting a 25’ RV and we are planning to leave on Dec 22nd and return on Dec 31st.
The goal is to take I-10 / I-8 all to San Diego, stopping to sleep on Flying Js or Wal-Mart. We would stay a day or 2 in San Diego in a campground. Take I-5 to LA with a mandatory stop on Disney; LA and Santa Monica. Take I-40 east and stop at Grand Canyon and head back to Dallas.
We do have experience with long trips, but always on East cost like I-95. Should I have any concerns with desert highways? Weather? Safety issues? Any advice will be much appreciated.
