Flagstaff has the Powell observatory, worth a look if you are into stars. The north rim is a worth while stop, less crowds and higher elevation.

Pretty much most of whats been said Petrified forest, we left the coach at the visiters and motored thru, then you'll come to Meteor crater thats just a couple hours, Sedona is a must see, I'll agree Trailer village in the canyon, But not much said about Antelope slot canyon tours, they take you there in the back of a pickup, but the pictures are breath taking

If you have time I would highly recommend 1-2 days at Canyon DeChelley National Monument (many people miss this), more interesting than the Grand Canyon. We love Antelope Canyon near page, AZ (there is an upper and lower section). If you are at Page you are not far from Zion NP, Bryce NP and Utah Hwy 12 (this is one of our favorite places in the U.S.) The fall is a great time to visit this area.

Let me know if you have other questions.

The Painted Desert and Petrified Forest are along your route and worth a drive through.

Try out of the box

If you're not on a schedule, I'd skip everything till you got to the Southwest since you're going a long ways. Grand Canyon South then North Rim, then do the Grand Circle tour -- Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capital Reef National Park, CanyonLands National Park, Monument Valley and Mesa Verde National Park. Great campgrounds in all the parks, don't need reservations (just get there early) and scenery like nothing you've ever seen!

I'm sorry, that picture sucks!
But if you stay at Trailer village, in the canyon, try to go during the week, the wait for the shuttles on the weekend was horrendous, the wait and the inconsiderate people

If you're in Flagstaff you would be foolish not to take a short drive (in a car, leave the coach) over to Sedona. A beautiful place for sure

About 50-60 miles west of Flagstaff is Williams. There is a pretty good RV park there called Grand Canyon Railroad RV Park. It is right by the train station and you can ride the train to Grand Canyon (kind of fun). Also close to old Hwy 66 and many restaurants.

On the north edge of Abq is Bernallillo. There is a KOA there (has a pretty nice owner). On Main St in Bernailillo there are three good restaurants (try the Range).

If you stay at the American RV Park, there are no refunds during the ballon fest, period (just a FYI). It is close to a CW if that matters.

Ditto on Sedona and Canyon deChelley NM.
