We'd like to visit Shiprock,Fourcorners,Chinle and can't decide if we should leave our 5th wheel in Gallup or if we could negotiate those roads with our rig. We'd appreciate any advice from someone who's been there, done that. Thanks all!

You can make it to any of the places you mentioned with your rig. As long as your seeing those sites, check out Taos, NM along with Sante Fe. All places are ok to pull to/thru.

The roads in the Fourconers are pretty good mostly two lane, but in good shape. There is lots to do and see. From the Grand Canyon, Lake Powel, Lots of ancient ruins the bigest being Mesa Verde or the Ute Mountain Trible Park. Mounument Valley, Goulding trading post. Arches national park, White water rafting on the Colorado by Moab Utah. Four Wheeling at 10,000 feet around Silverton and Quary CO. Brice canyon area in Utah but watch out for the tunel, can't take a big rig through there, you have to go around. Canyon De Chelly. The Durango Silverton railroad, white water rafting in Durango CO. Cumbres and Toltec railroad in Chama NM. As mentioned Toas and Santa Fe good for arts and craft shopping. Navajo Lake/San Juan river Quality water for fishing, Chaco Canyon Ruins, Farmington area. If you want to park a while and tour I would suggest Farmington, you can vist quite a bit of things as day trip from this area with out having to haul the trailer. Then move on to other areas. If you are coming from the east Hit Toas and Santa Fe first, Chama, Farmington/Durango/Shiprock. Then move on west to Moab, down to Brice, Grand canyon, start working your way back through northern AZ Flagstaff Chinle, Mounument Valley and where ever else you want to go.

If you have specfic questions PM and I will try and answer them, if you do get in the area let me know.

Four Corners area is scenic & my favorite area. We spent 5 wonderful weeks there last summer. We had no problem negotiating the highways with our 36' MH. Parked for a few days or a week here & there & day tripped in our Saturn toad.
