Western US RV trip

We would like some suggestions for a RV trip in the western half of the US..We have done Glacier and Yellowstone many times so we would like some new ideas.. Dont really want to go any further east this year than Colorado and we will have a total of 10 days..

Last year we did Devils Tower, Field of Dreams, Worlds Largest Truck Stop and Mount Rushmore

You can't go wrong making as much of the Grand Circle as you have time for. With only 10 days I'd do Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Dead Horse State Park, and, if I still had time, Goblin Valley State Park, Kodachrome State Park & Bryce National Park.

While I'd prefer to spend the entire 10 days at one or two of the parks, another suggestion is to "graze" the parks, deciding which you want to spend more time in on the next trip. There is no way you can do justice to the full circle in 10 weeks, let along 10 days.

If you like to hike, I'd plan on spending most of my time in Canyonlands & Arches. I have photos of all of these parks and more on my trips journals - 2011 & 2012.

And I'd add Aztec Ruins, NM (Just south of Durango), and Chaco Canyon Ruins, NM, along with Chimney Rock National Monument just west of Pagosa Springs, CO. Spend some time in Pagosa Springs to soak your tired bodies in the hot springs. Wolf Creek Pass is an amazing ride, and then stop at the Sand Dunes National Monument on your way east. There's a bunch to see in southwest Colorado! Enjoy!

Zion park (Utah) is nice too. Took me a day to bicycle to the top and 10 min to get back down! Was fun though.

You can't go wrong with any of the previous posters suggestions.

We did Oregon Dunes a few years back and it was great! Rent a dune buggy and go! Also go see Crater Lake.

That's why we live in SW CO (we'll include Farmington too - we're headed there late this month to see a play - Spamalot!) So many things to do...

On 101 coast Hwy is there any Rv spots to recommend.

I suppose that most of the places that you all have mentions require reservations in advance??
