Have a look at the average temperatures for where you are going - especially if any your trip takes place between October and April. Once it starts getting cold (mid October) many campgrounds inkluding State Parks will close for the season, and you are limited to where you can stay.

Little Rock and Austin "does not compute". Austin is 220 miles out of the way (side trip).

If you like a State Park atmosphere and lots of trees, Rock Crusher Canyon RV park between Crystal River and Inverness is a good park to visit. It does fill up fast in the winter time and has been filled to capacity, in February. The park is closer to Crystal RIVER but Inverness is about 10-15 minutes away.

It has great WiFI and cable is included. If you have 30Amp service you will need to bring a dogbone to connect up to a 50 Amp service. Best of luck on your trip.

Happy RV'ing

You should be ok, but might get tight on time if you want to "smell the roses".

Your route, as described, has you covering about 9000 miles, perhaps more with some side trips, in about 110 days (assuming you leave right after Labor Day). If you want to see the country along the way you won't *average* much more than about 100 miles per day. The LAST thing you want to do on a trip of this magnitude is turn it into a high-speed road trek, where you find yourselves rushing through 700-mile days just to meet your own preordained plan.

Also keep in mind that a couple of times along the way you're going to be tired, and you'll want to just sit still for a week. There will be services required on the coach. This is good and normal, but will impact your timing.

Your calendar selection is good. You cross the northern tier after summer heat but before winter; you hit New England perfectly (early Oct); you'll make your early winter return through the SW and So Cal.

All in all it sounds like a momentous, memorable trip! Enjoy!

Ditto for Rock Crusher. Also, there's a really nice COE in Maumelle AR outside Little Rock. It's on the Arkansas River, and you can reserve site specific to nab one of the waterfront sites.
