I am new to the forums and have been reading lots of trip reports which are very helpful. I am UK based and looking to hire an RV and take a West coast roadtrip with my husband and two children who will be 14 and 12 when we go. In researching all this I have a couple of basic starting questions. I am looking at Cruise America to hire a 25foot class c RV. Is it possible to drive RV along pacific coast highway from LA to San Francisco? Are there particularly difficult sections to drive? Concerned about drop off's etc. We would also like to see Yosemite and Grand Canyon. We have three weeks max to do the roadtrip. I have read that Tioga pass is closed nov - june. What route is open for travelling from Yosemite to Grand Canyon if we were travelling in October? I can't decide best time of year to go. As our kids are at school and we are not very flexible due to school holidays it may have to be three weeks in July. Is it true that RVs can't go through Death Valley at that time of year? So many questions!
