for the first time hopefully this summer.
first thank you very much for the forum. I have learned a lot when reading various posts. Road trips reports are great. When I read them it is almost like I am there myself.
I write as I would like to ask you for advise, tips on the trip I plan with my family in the summer. Below a few details on the initial plan:
When: 20 jun – 3 weeks
Who: me, my wife and two daughters (5 and 3 at the time of travel), possibly another family with kids of the similar age.but
Where: LA, Sequoia NP, Yosemite NP, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Zion, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, San Diego, LA
Why: spend time together, see the wonders of the nature and have great time
I have lots of questions ... but to start I would like to get you advice on the following areas:
Travel with young kids
what is your experience, do you recommend road trip with small kids, any advice, tips?
What distance I should cover with small kids on a day?
Rent a RV
would you recommend to rent from a big company or smaller one?
What do you think about renting from a private person
I am looking for a C class 29-30 feet – is it a good choice in terms of size
when to make the booking, now or later?
Recommendation for a nice camping at the ocean
I want to spend a few days camping somewhere nice. Would you recommend a place somewhere between San Diego and San Francisco (nice and quiet place with trees, and grass for the kids to play and good access to the beach)
I am sorry for my english... I am not native speaker.
Any other comments are welcomed.
Thank you for your help and advise,
