Hello all, what an informative site. I have spent many happy hours reading about various trips throughout your country.
I intend visiting USA in September, with my wife, for my 50th birthday. My original plan was to fly into Vegas and rent a RV and use it to explore between Vegas, Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon (also Death Valley rental allowing), and finish up in Vegas again.
However by the amount of information I've seen here I was wondering if it may be a better idea to fly into LA and drive to Vegas via Grand Canyon etc and use motels instead. The trip will be over 14 to 16 days and I would be looking at hiring an unlimited mileage car.
Unfortunately the vastness of the USA is creating nightmares trying to calculate distances and routes so a little advice here would be cool. My preferences are for scenery as opposed to cities but anything goes.
