My husband and I are really excited to be heading on our first roadtrip in the States, across and through California, for a month from September 12th. We have hired a class C RV, and are flying into LAX and flying home from there too. We were planning to travel from LA, to Vegas, to Death Valley, to Sequioa, to Yosemite - then up to Tahoe, across to Napa and then finally SF. Last leg is the drive south to San Diego and then back up to LA to fly home.
BUT, we have just been advised by our RV hire company that we are not allowed to travel to Death Valley at that time of year, which kind of throws our plans right out of whack......
Having got my brain in a right old tizzy, I stumbled upon this site and it would appear to be the right place to ask some good, sensible advice about all this road trip stuff!
So really what I'm asking is - does anyone have some good advice about how we might make the above work without delaying our route too much?
The only situation we have envisaged is flying up to Vegas, hiring a car from there to take a day trip to Death Valley, so we don't miss it - and then back to LA to pick up the RV and take the route up to Sequoia direct out of LA and continue the above itinerary from there
But would we be missing out not travelling up on the 395?
I know there are loads of forum threads on this trip, a popular one! But any further advice from those in the know would be really gratefully received.
Thanks so much
