South Rim GC to Las Vegas

Planning on using 89 and 15 just before Easter.

Is this route in good condition and suitable for a Class A motorhome.
I'm happy with narrow 2 lanes but not into pot holes or gravel.

Going from the South Rim to Vegas I think most people would take 64 south to Williams AZ and then west on I-40. 64 is a very good road designed to handle the Canyon's visitor traffic. IMHO going north to I-15 takes you out of your way; we came south that way coming from Utah.

It would be a LONG way using the 89-I15 route. 64 down to I40 to Kingman then 93 to Vegas.

89 to I 15 is 277 miles while 89 and 40 is 382 miles 50% longer.
Google Maps are suggesting both routes. I know GPS can lead you up the garden path so don't want to go there. But if the roads are ok surely the shorter route would be a go.
