  1. Default NY to SF in 15 days in RV, is it possible?

    Hi guys,

    You have set up a great tool and it is wonderful to read all the good advice.

    My wife and I are planning to take our one year old kid for two weeks trip at the end of December (in three weeks) in a RV from New York to San Francisco. We would like to take a southern route so we can stay relatively in warmer climate.

    I would appreciate the audience suggestions/recommendations on:

    1. Suggested route (less highways, more attractions that can be done with a small kid including short walks)

    2. Is the allotted time feasible?

    3. Any recommendations on information sources to look at.

    Thanks in advance and I look forward to reading your feedback, Best, Ranan

    Default destinations in mind

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You can make the trip from NY to SF in about 5 days on a direct interstate route, so you really shouldn't have any problems covering the distance over 15 days.

    Otherwise, I think your canvas is a bit to large for us to start painting. There are a million possible routes and stops along the way, but without knowing what you are interested in or if you have any destinations you've already got in mind, its not really possible to give you any solid advice.

    If you really are at the blank slate phase, then I'd start by spending some quality just browsing the forum and the other section of this website.

  3. Default thought our route

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    We are looking to go through Washington, Atlanta, New Orleans then head west, try to go through some of the national parks on the way to L.A and then to S.F.

    Our Moto: the less highways the better, the more nature - superior.

    Any thoughts on routes that were tested as successful will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, Ranan

    When working on your route -- consider adding some national monuments in the mix -- less people, same amazing scenery.

    Here are a couple of examples:

    Monuments v. National Parks

    Nearby wonders to the Grand Canyon.
