Planning a road trip in a RV when you have never done it before and live in the UK is daunting, but this site is great.
I would like your thoughts on the planned route so far and any suggestions are welcome:
3 nights in La - hotel booked already before we get the RV
Drive LA to Barstow (spend one night there).
Barstow to Flagstaff (one night there)
Flagstaff to Grand Canyon North Rim (2 nights there)
GC to Bryce NP (1 night there)
Bryce to Zion NP (1 night there)
Zion NP to Las Vegas (2 nights there)
LV to Barstow (1 night there)
Barstow to Sequoia NP (1 night there)
Sequoia NP to Yosemite (2 nights there)
Yosemite to San Francisco (2 nights there)
SF to Monterey (1 night there)
Monterey to Santa Margarita (1 night there)
Back to LA for one more night in hotel then home.
We have 2 kids (13 and 10), so have tried to limit the driving. I have 1 more night to fill (and suggestions where best spent?)
Would have like to do Monument Valley but not sure if worth the detour.
Not sure about Barstow twice but thought it the best way to avoid Death Valley in summer (as no go for the RV). What other suggestions are there?
Any recommendations for campsites? Was thinking about KOA maybe???
I am grateful for any help. What do you guys think?
