We'll be taking our 30' 5th wheel through Phoenix to Salt Lake and wondered what would be the best route from someone who has done this. Thanks in advance for any response.

Make that same trip each year from Mesa, Az to Salt Lake.

Two ways to go:

17 to 74 or 60 to Wickenburg, 93 to Kingman, over Hoover dam to Las Vegas, then I-15 to SLC.

Or

North on 17 to Flagstaff then 89 to Page, Kanab, Gunnison, then 28 to I-15 to SLC.

We have been both ways and the choice depends on the weather in flagstaff. If it is no snow we take the Flagstaff route, stay in Page or Kanab and then to SLC. Think it is the most scenic. If Vegas is a stop over you wish to experience then of course that is the way to go. We do not enjoy the Interstates as much as the hi-ways, but that is our preference, and you may choose differently. Vegas is more miles but time is about the same as the Interstate can be driven faster. If snow is forecast along I-15 we stay in Arizona and wait for a break. Snow on I-15 in Beaver county or on US 89 in Seiver County is not something we wish to encounter.

Other times of the year, take either route and mix it up if you do it more than once.

Thank you both. I like that Rt.89 way, definitely not thru Las Vegas,especially since we'll be going in dry weather[a June wedding in Boise!!].

I would take your choice of Rte 89 via Flagstaff.

If you go through Las Vegas (sometimes lots of traffic), over Hoover Dam, you will also have the new bridge construction and a full inspection by DPS officers. Although that is the way we travel to Idaho (LV through SLC), if you are in NM I'd recommend the Flagstaff route. The scenery is better and possibly not as hot also. We are practically in Wickenburg so we go through Kingman and over the dam.
