Good highways - 191 to 491 to 160 east from Cortez, CO to Durango. Stop in Cortez and tour Mesa Verde Nat'l Park. While in Durango take a drive up to Silverton - awesome scenery - or take the train up and return via the optional bus. Taking the train both ways is a very long day.

You mentioned 184; not sure what you mean.

25' limit at Mesa Verde

Be aware you will need to drop your trailer off at the Welcome Center at MV as the roads inside the park have a 25' limit.

Is it safe to disconnect your 5th Wheel at the Welcome Center?

You can't park at the Visitor Center in Mesa Verde. Just beyond and right before the entrance gate is a trailer parking area but it's not a large area. Just beyond the entrance gate is Morefield campground which is where I'd recommend you stay for touring Mesa Verde. There are a limited number of electric sites and a lot more dry camping sites. You'll need to get tour tickets at the Visitor Center and I highly recommend you do a tour to get close to the ruins.

Each national park has an awesome web site (nps.gov) which gives lots of information such as camping, roads, special alerts, things to do, etc. Check them out thoroughly.

Here is the park map and you can zero in closer:

Here's a picture of the campground:
