Hello everyone. I am new to this forum, and new to Motorhomes, but have been camping my entire life. Everything from a mattress in the back of a pick up truck to tents, to pop up campers, 5th Wheelers, and pull behinds. We recently moved from Missouri to Colorado and are attempting to sale our travel trailer and lake lot since we can't get out to use them anymore. When we stopped going to the lake, my parents sold their lot and 5th Wheeler, so our family has been really "camper-less" for about 3 years.
Just last week my parents, my husband and I went in 50/50 on a motor home. My husband is a truck driver, so he will be doing 99.9% of the driving, and while we want to make the stops easy for him to get in and out of, we don't have a novice driving the vehicle (Class A motorhome and I believe it is 38 ft). We are attempting to plan our first road trip in it and are probably going to take it next year so we can take 2 weeks.
We have all agreed on Mount Rushmore, Badlands and Yellowstone. But does anyone have any suggestions of campgrounds, neat sites or any information that you think is useful for a trip like this? We will be doing a lot of shorter trips to really figure everything out (like sleeping arrangements) prior to this big trip.
