My fellow forum folk,
Need your help please
We are an Aussie family of 2A and 2 teenagers looking at a road trip around AZ and NM in Dec this year. Plan to fly into Phoenix around 16th Dec and need to be back in Los Angeles around 27th Dec. So would have about 10-11 days available
We have previously done an RV trip of the west coast and "northern" parts of AZ (including the GC) and Utah, NM in Sept/Oct about 3 years ago and enjoyed it immensely.
This time would like to see areas around Sedona, Tuscon, Tombstone and possibly spending Christmas at the GC before going back to LA.
Not sure if this time an RV or normal vehicle (like a small SUV) would be the better option. Have been watching the temps and I would think that the RV (probably Moturis) is going to have to be winterised before we leave Phoenix so somewhat defeats the purpose.
On the other hand I'm a bit concerned about having to find suitable accommodation each night.
I have this recurring concern about being stranded without accommodation on the side of a very cold road at night.
Appreciate your help,
