First of all ---I am new to the forums and website and would appreciate any input.My wife is retiring in April and we are planning a road trip to celebrate. We have always wanted to see Yellowstone and other sites out west and I began researching about RV traveling.
During research I came about info from Cruise America regarding one-way rentals at a very discounted price and the idea has caught my interest.I was wondering if anyone can offer any suggestions to help me decide on the trip.
Basically I would need to pickup the RV in Indiana after Apr 21 and have it in Carson Ca by May 22 I was thinking about making the trip on May 7 and heading west to visit YNP and GTNP possibly the GCanyon and SLCity.These are all places I visited over 55 yrs ago with my parents as a small child.
I would just need to get the Rv to Ca before May 22 and we could fly home from LAX using Skymiles.
We could also just drive out to YNP and wherever we decide to visit and stay in motels and such.I suppose we could go at a later date in that event but we were really wanting to go early anyway to try and avaoid the crowds.
In figuring up the expense I know fuel will be huge in an RV but I wonder if it will not be outweighed by having to eat all meals out and needing a motel each nite.I guess I need to research more into the difference an RV site costs compared to motel and meals.
I am worried about the weather in May and driving conditions either way car or RV.
Anybody want to share an opinin??
