I have driven from Northern California to Texas several times when I was on leave before but this time I was wanting to get an RV and take a few buddies of mine from this tour on a trip through California. *4 of us total* But with me being completely new to all this I was hoping you guys (or gals) could share some of your experience and expertise with me. I have a plan of the sites I'd like to see but where to even start as far as good places to rent an RV from, whether or not it would be better to just rent a car and stay at hotels (I'd like to rent an RV unless the cost difference is considerable), what kind of deals I can get, etc. is beyond me. Please throw some tips my way and share the gems you've uncovered on your road trips.
Here is the planned route (feel free to critique it as well) http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=ki...mra=ls&t=m&z=5
