Hi, brand new here and I was hoping to get some travel advice. We want to work our way south from the Rapid City, SD area and winter around Phoenix. We are not looking for the most scenic route, just the easiest and most direct.
Since we are new full timers with little experience in the mountains, we were trying to find the easiest way to get south to Arizona from here. We started out from Michigan pulling a 37ft Montana with four slides so it is quite a load.
We have just upgraded our truck from a 1998 3/4 ton Silverado to a 2005 Ford 3500 because we did not enjoy the struggles up the grades with the Chevy. So I will save the more scenic routes for next year after I have had more time to get used to the new truck and how it handles the grades.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
