That is an EXCELLENT itinerary. Almost the same trip we did this year only we were going the opposite direction. We stayed at Trailer Village in Grand Canyon NP. Bauer's Canyon RV is a great choice. We have stayed there twice. Check out Cedar Breaks while you are there. Very central to Bryce, Zion, Cedar Breaks, and the north Rim of the Grand Canyon if you decide to go there. Take Highway 12 through Escalante, Boulder, Torrey. (Hogsback Highway is a treat). Consider staying at Deadhorse Canyon State Park at Canyonlands. We didn't, but will next time. The RV parks in Moab are just fine if you can't do that.

You mentioned 'cross country' but it seems that you're beginning around Holbrook, AZ. Just wondering where you're starting and how long you have for the trip.

Painted Desert & Petrified Forest are basically drive-through parks, especially in July. It's going to be hot. You can see both in one day and add your spare day to another park.

Grand Canyon - I would recommend staying in the park itself at Trailer Village, especially if you're on a time constraint. Williams is a long boring drive each day.

Basically the same recommendation for Zion and Bryce. You're staying far from each and only have a day at each. Try to stay closer or inside each park and allow at least two days each.

I disagree. Glendale is 45 minutes to Bryce and 20 minutes to Zion. One day each is plenty of time to see it all, unless you want to see it twice.

Don't miss dead horse point. I actually thought it was more amazing than the grand canyon. Sometimes the grand canyon seems so big that you can't take it all in... almost seems unreal. Dead horse, on the other hand seems all too real... there are plenty of places to scare the life out of you there if you're brave enough to venture close to the edge. When we were there, the wind was just howling, and you didn't dare let go of your kids...

Bryce is also amazing. We stayed at ruby 's there... and at grand canyon we stayed at trailer village. Would do both of those again without hesitation.

I just love the desert southwest... I hope to go through there again someday. Looks like you're going to have a great trip even if it is fast paced. We did 6200 miles in June of 2013 in 3 weeks... it was a lot of driving, but we saw so much... I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Cheers
