Hi Everyone,
We will be traveling on I-40 to OK City (then north)but would like some new intel on the rest stops and best Fuel stops with a big 5er (38'). Where can I stop and park for 6hrs at a shot for rest and to let the puppies do their thing.
Thanks in advanced.

We traveled that route twice last year on the way to St Louis. We fueled at Winslow AZ., Amarillo TX., and OK City (cheapest diesel fuel in the country). It looks like you will not have the same range as we do. All our fuel is purchased at the Flying J's, and I use there website to keep track of prices. http://www.flyingj.com/fuel/diesel_CF.cfm
We stayed at the interstate rest areas and were never bothered. Like you, our typical stop was 6-7 hours, and we wanted to stop when I was tired, not when we reached an RV campground. The last run was Thanksgiving week and the rest areas filled quickly so we stopped and started early.
One rest area was so screwed up Patty had to go outside and blaze the trail for us to wind our way around the big-rigs. I think that was in New Mexico.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

One spot to rest and tend the RV is the CGs(both owned by same couple) in Grants NM. Near the interstate but quiet, and cost $15 two years ago for full hookups.

Many , many campgrounds along I-40. It is afterall old Route 66! We traveled I-40 in three round trips two years ago when we moved from Virginia to Utah. We stayed at different parks every night. Never had a problem finding a place to stay. Except in October around Flagstaff and the annual Balloon Festival.
And remember, it is all downhill to OKC from Flagstaff. If you don't believe it, look at your GPS as you leave Flag and look again when you get to OKC.
