Cross country NY to CA and back in 3 months

My wife and I are recently retired and planning a 3 month cross country trip in August starting from NY. Our problem is that we have so many interests especially in the southern states that there is no way we can complete the trip in that time frame. Our plan is to do the northern sections first drive to southern CA and do the southern states back to NY. It will be my wife and I as well as 2 small dogs in a 40 foot diesel pusher and a toad. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a good trip! Knowing you both are retired, what is the rush - why not take your time, and if you have to leave parts of it for next year because you have to be back to NY in three months, so be it.
Enjoy the journey as well as the destination!
Happy camping.

I don't understand your question? It will be hot along the southern route in Aug, so starting out north and ending south is a good idea. All I can say is stay flexible and try to use some of the 2-lane highways and not just interstates.

I've done it twice from NJ and they were fantastic voyages both times. Used Pass Port America both times and it payed for itself at the first campground. Don't make any long term reservations never know what will happen. Reservs the day before worked fine for us. I would consider myself a professional Wallie World camper stayed in them from coast to coast without ever having a problem. Oh ya the Next Exit book was a great addition, along with a National Park Pass. Good luck

Thanks for the feedback. I hoping to find fellow rv'rs that have done this before and can suggest the route along the northern states to California.
