There's an East and West. I have both and found them to be invaluable.

I've been to Colorado, Utah and Arizona but not in an RV. That's why we're getting our brand new RV so we can go back. I think these states have a lot to do and the beauty is breathtaking. We did rent an RV once for Utah and did canyon country with the kids and it was their best vacation ever. Zion, Bryce Canyon, lake Powell, Moab, it was wonderful.

Hope you have more then 3 or 4 weeks, if you plan on both Grand Canyon AND Yellowstone. Each is a multi week trip in itself. To travel from Florida, all that way, and have to "rush" through, would be a shame. However, if you have the time, it is an amazing trip. This great land of ours is so fascinating. It will be a trip you will remember for a long , long time. Go for It !!!!!!!!
There are books galore on this sort of vacationing. Use the "state tourist" requests you can easily find on line. A lot of the fun is in the planning and anticipation ..

Mike and Terri Church have published several camping guides. I don't know if it fits your agenda but they have a Pacific Northwest Camping Destinations and another is the Southwest Camping Destinations. They are a over $20 each - I'd suggest you seach the internet for them and see if they cover areas that might interest you.

OK WOW 3 months. Thats great. try the 300/3PM routine, 300 miles a day, or 3:00 pm, whichever comes first. Some people put another 3 in that equation, meaning stay 3 days at each stop.
. We spent 4 weeks just in the canyons of Utah. Another time 6 weeks all over New Mexico, the balloon fest, White sands, Roswell [area 51].. but we missed Carlsbad caverns. Have a wonderful time. Enjoy...
