Look here or search Two Gypsies - To Utah

Lot's of good info - just be sure to Factor in the Weather (HOT/HEAT)

++ to that. You hire an inexpensive Navajo guide with vehicle because it is within the Nation. You will learn a lot ans the scenery is amazing. More ruins that Ive seen ever.

Just a couple of things to add. I would take the northern route out because if you get to mid October you might get snowed in for a day or so if the weather gets real bad in the mountains. As you're coming down from the Eisenhower tunnel you might want to stop in Idaho Springs for some pizza at Beau Joís Pizza. (Full disclosure - friends of mine worked there for years, still may)
As to US-36 it goes just north of Kansas City through Missouri then it turns into I-72 in Illinois. Nice 4 lane road with no stop lights from Cameron at I-35 to the Illinois border, just plan your fuel stops as there is not much fuel on the highway. There's also Hannibal at the Mississippi River which may be worth a stop. Just watch the roads in Hannibal, some of them get pretty steep if you get off of the highways. Haven't been on 36 in west of Cameron so no info on that part of the road. Sounds like a nice trip.

You can also tour the bottom of Canyon de Chelly on horseback which is what we did. Fun.

At the North Rim of the GC, the campground does not have hookups and you will need to have reservations as mentioned before. The only place nearby that has full hookups is Kaibab Camper Village in Jacob Lake, about 45 miles from the national park. It gets varied reviews, but we will be there in a week and a half, so can up date you on how it is.

Page AZ and Lake Powell - Wahweap RV and Campground

While driving through NM, head up to Santa Fe, there are a few very nice rv parks. Just outside of town is Rancheros de Santa Fe and a KOA. In town on the bus route is a small rv park, Los Suenos de Santa Fe. Albuquerque RV parks aren't the nicest, but the KOA in Bernalillo (inbetween Abq and Santa Fe) is very nice.

For the North Rim of the Grand Canyon if you can't get a site in the park's campground there a beautiful forest service campground at the park gate along the highway. It's called DeMotte campground - Kaibab Nat'l Forest. If you can't get into either then just beyond DeMotte is a flat, good gravel road on the right. Take it back 1/2 miles or so and you'll find lovely boondocking spots in the national forest. Easy to get to.
