Hi and Hello, my first post.
We are living in TAmpa having moved over from the UK last year.
This summer we want to see some of the west and Grand Canyon and our starting to plan an RV holiday, this is were we need you help. Are our ideas realistic? We also need advice on booking overnight stops, do you have to book or can you just turn up?
The plan is we fly to vegas on 6th June, have 2-3 nights there to see the town and then pick up the RV.
The Kids are 10 and 7 and there are 4 of us in total, we would like to see one of the lakes and take a boat out?
We want to see the grand canyon. (My son wants to see the four corners is that worth going to?)
Our initial idea is to pick up the RV head out towards the grand canyon and maybe finish up in Denver, we fly back on the 21st so will have the RV for about 12 days? Is this a realistic idea or would we be better doing a round trip and ending back in Vegas?
Our other thoughts was to head towards San Francisco and fly back from there.
Advice would be really appreciated, we don't want to spend every day driving and when we do drive want to keep it to a mx of about 4-6 hours on the road at a time.
The thing is some of the places we want to see are both east and west of Vegas (Grand Canyon - Death Valley) can we do both or should we just decide one way or the other.
Also do we have to book into the RV camps in advance, for a June trip when would we need to start booking? What happens if you can't get into a park, can you just stop anywhere and sleep overnight?
Advice much appreciated.
