I'm planning a one-way 36 day RV trip late June-->early August with 5 others going through the following locations:
NYC-->DC-->(great lakes-->)Chicago-->Yellowstone-->Monument valley-->Grand canyon-->Las Vegas-->Yosemite National Park-->San Francisco-->LA
1. What do you think of the trip outline? It's only rough and we don't want to plan every single day of the trip as that would take out some of the fun. But just a comment on the outline and suggestions would be nice. Also the insurance details prevent us from passing through death valley. A shame or no big loss?
2. Is 5 weeks a good length of time for the distance covered? We're planning on staying for 2/3 days at/around each of these checkpoints.
3. How much of a hassle is an RV? We've done our sums financially, but wondered how difficult it was to park it, especially round big cities. Most of the trip (2/3) will be Yellowstone-->LA and I gather that should be ok. I imagine the 'city' side of the trip NYC, DC, Chicago (1/3 of trip) is less suited to RVing? I guess we like the 'coast-to-coast' idea. Any thoughts on whether it would be feasible would be nice. Maybe we could cut off DC and go instead from NYC to the great lakes/niagara falls before reaching Chicago?
Some replies would be nice. Thanks.
