I have never been on an RV trip before, but I am planning one with my siblings and their respective partners for next summer. In total, there will be 8 adults and 3 children. We are all very close and get along well, so we are not concerned about being in close quarters with each other for the two week trip through the Pacific Northwest that we have planned (in its early stages). We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and plan to rent an RV (size to be determined, but definitely Class C) drive east through Utah and begin our adventure in Wyoming (Yellowstone/Grand Tetons), continue north to Glacier and then west to parks in Washington and Oregon before heading back to California.
My questions are:
1) For a group of our size (8 adults, 3 small children), what size RV would you recommend for a two week journey.
2)Are there "must-see" parks you would recommend along our rout and ones that you would suggest we skip due to our limited timeframe?
3)I have estimated about $1500 pp for this trip based on RV rental, gas, foodstuffs, park entrance fees and camping fees. Does this sound reasonable for a two-week trip as described or am I way off?
4) Are there any costs that I am not accounting for that you would consider vital to my estimate?
Thanks for any advice or response.
