Road help

We are traveling from Flagstaff,AZ to Utah to visit the National Parks. We are thinking of taking US 89 from Flagstaff to I 70 with stops along this route to see Lake Powell area, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. After these we want to see Capital Reef, Arches, Canyonlands and Monument Valley. Our Tiffin Allegro Bay is gas, 39' and we are towing. My husband is concerned about roads and steep grades.
We will leave this week. Any suggestions for roads to take or avoid would be helpful.

Do you have the Mountain Directory App or book for the Western States. I would recommend that as it gives you a heads up where the bigger passes are.

If I recall correctly I70 is one massive downhill run for many miles.

Rvtripwizard.com($) has an elevation option which we find very handy. I am sure other programs also have this option.

I drove my 43-footer all through there, including hwy 12 from hwy 24 through Capital Reef to the 89. It was exciting, yes, but didn't seem overly dangerous. Plenty of steep inclines for sure. I was not pulling a toad.
