I stumbled on your forum and I am hoping to get some advice to get our trip planning started. thank you in advance
for any useful tips.
We are planning a semi-lastminute RV roadtrip through the southwest USA. There a couple of dilemmas we have to deal with and i am
hoping some of the experience campers could help us with.
We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 5 year old and 3 year old).
We arrive in Los Angeles middle of March. And return from Denver to the Netherlands middle of April.
We have 4 days until we pick up our RV in Los Angeles.
Our initial planning was to use these days to visit Las Vegas and continue from there. But sadly they didnt have any oneways available anymore. My wife and I both visited this part of USA already and did the big highlights in the past (Grand Canyon, Death Valley) so as these are not a must it would be great if we could take them along in the trip.
Now we have 4 days to spend in Los Angeles and thereafter continue on our 21 day RV trip to Denver.
I have studied for a while in Tucson which would be nice to visit on our trip. But we are not sure if we would plan the trip around that. Advantage would be the nicer weather this time of year. This would require to turn of to the south quite early and maybe miss out on all the good things in the North.
I was looking at the LA - Phoenix - Tucson - Alburquerque - Denver route. Is anybody familiar with this route and can give me some advise if its good or not.
Alternatively we could go LA - Phoenix -Tucson - Phoenix - Flagstaff and continue up north from there.
Last Alternative would be to skip Tucson and do the northerly route.
I would be greatful on any advise.
We would really like to visit Las Vegas on our trip. But I am a little taken back by the fact doing that per RV. I read about some in city RV parks. We might use the initial four days to make a quick road trip to Las Vegas and back.
As we have young children we would like to limit our RV driving to ensure we can have multiple night stopovers if we encouter a nice spot.
Thanks in advance,
