btw way, I x2 i25 to Albuquerque. If you stay on i25 just past alb there is a nice koa at the base of the mountain. It gives you EASY access to the sandia peak, and the big casino.

We're in Apache Junction, just east of Phoenix, and the only difficulty we've ever had is during the morning rush hour. The Highways are gorgeous, and the signage is incredibly good with route numbers painted on the lanes you should be in at Junctions. I would definitely come through Phoenix on I-10 to I-17 North to Flagstaff. I-17 North runs through beautiful scenery all the way up to Flagstaff and is a great road. But, you really should stop in the Phoenix area and enjoy the Sonoran Desert and the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix. That being said, the Mesas and Buttes on I-40 west of Albuquerque are awesome. As a side note, I-40 runs through Winslow, Arizona, and I cannot imagine why anybody would be standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, ...just sayin'.

You just haven't lived unless you've driven through houston during rush hour traffic in a class A with a trailer.

had to replace the seat cushion after that trip

We just returned from a 2 month trip to Phoenix. We go every year because our daughter lives there. We always take I-10, We have also been thru Amarillo and I-40 towards Albuquerque but only if heading north into the mountains. Phoenix is not difficult to maneuver if you pay attention to the road signs. Also a GPS works well. I suggest that you study the maps or use map quest and print out directions before you go. You can catch I-17 from I-10 in central Phoenix head due north to Flagstaff. From there you head west on I-40 to Williams and then north to CGNP. Be aware that there is long grade going into the Bradshaw Mountains north of Phoenix. Not to high, 6 or 7 thousand feet, but very long going both up and down the other side with 6 to 8% grades .

Here's some campground suggestions depending on how far you drive daily after leaving San Antonio.

Day one - Balmorehea Stay park (easy off and on from I-10)
Day two - Kartchner Caverns State Park outside of Benson, AZ or Catalina State Park outside of Tucson if you drive that far.
Day three - Black Canyon Ranch RV Park at Canyon City AZ or Dead Horse Ranch State Park outside of Cottonwood AZ. This park is very close to Jerome and Sedona and there are lots of things to see in the area. You can also stay there and drive up to the Grand Canyon in a little over two hours if you don't plan on staying in the GCNP.

All these parks have websites and the AZ state parks actually have pictures of the campsites you can select. Advice is to book early!

Good Luck and enjoy your Trip.

WM
