Here's what Google maps looks like. I never went this way. Hopefully others can comment on the roads.

191 south to 160 to 89 south to Cameron, AZ then 64 west into the park is the way you'd want to go if staying at Trailer Village in the park.

If you're staying in Williams you could take 89 into Flagstaff and west on I-40.

The above is very good with your 40' MH. We've done it often.

You will also be passing by Monument Valley if you've never been there. The only RV park is Gouldings - nice views. Take a tour of Monument Valley or drive your towed vehicle if it's suitable. 4x4 isn't necessary but a high clearance would be ideal.


Have a good trip!

Not exactly boondocking because there is now a $10 charge but this is a good place for one night. It's at Mexican Hat on 163 just past Bluff, UT - paved road to get to it. You can then take 163 to Monument Valley and then AZ160. Once you are in the Monument Valley area and all the way to Hwy 89/64 you will be on reservation land. We haven't boondocked on their lands although I'm sure there are areas to do so and you might even need approval. You could do a day trip to Natural Bridges Nat'l Monument from here but definitely not with your RV. You'd be traveling Moki Dugway and it's very steep but a interesting drive in a vehicle. If you have a semi high clearance vehicle you could also drive the Valley of the Gods gravel road. It's a loop and has some pretty scenery.
