Your choice.
This is the way we used to travel with the kids and only 2 weeks of vacation. Fly-rental car-hotels-fly.

Our first year of motorhoming, we went to the Winnebago GNR in Forest City. Three weeks round trip (that's all the time I had) averaging 400 miles per travel day, with only a couple of extended stays anywhere, including 5 days at the rally. Too grueling.

Now that we have retired, it's around 200 miles a day (300 max) and usually 2 nights minimum stopover at any campground.

For what it's worth, it took us 17 days to get from the Treasure Coast to Gillette, WY last year.

My last trip from Anchorage, AK to Middletown, OH took 11 days to cover 4300 miles. We didn't spend a lot of time sightseeing other than MT Rushmore and Custer.

The trip was not hard averaged around 10 hours a day driving. Stopped to eat lunch each day, waited on dinner until we were parked for the night.

On the road each day by around 8 and parked by 6 or so.

I think your trip will be fine in 22 days.

I hate to do this but 5,000 miles at 60/hr is around 83 hours. Or 10 days at 8 hours per day. At about $40/hr in fuel, $3,300. in fuel... Covering so much road to essentially cover only one destination... Mind you, visiting children, priceless!

How about flying to WY, rent an RV there, use it to see the Rockies at a leisurely pace, spend a few days with children on either end of trip? Sounds like more fun to me than endless days of just driving, and would probably cost about the same.
