Traveling Houston to Phoenix and back

I am about to embark on a cross country trip for work. Two of us have to drive the gas powered government RV to Phoenix for work. Are there any suggestions on places to stop, limits to how far you think we should drive each day, etc.? Safe places to stop for gas, etc. along I-10?


Keep in mind, we'd like to make this drive in two days if possible.

Rob

I have made that drive a few times in the last few years. We intersect I-10 at Junction. We have stayed at Hilltop RV in Ft stockton, TX a couple times. We have stayed at Cochise Terrace in Benson, AZ. On return we have stayed 3 times at KOA in Van Horn, TX. All of these are good places for over nighters. It just depends on the distance you desire to drive each day. If there is wind, it can be pretty enduring throught west Texas and New Mexico, and can even become dangerous.

For clarification, this RV we're driving does not have sleeping quarters, so we'll be staying in hotels the whole time we use it.

Should be about 17 hours driving, by car. Could be 9 or 10 hours on road each day for two days. If your RV will be driven the speed limit? That is going to be a hard two days. Stay safe.

You better make sure you have hotel reservation along I-10 past Kerrville TX Hotels are far and in between and are booked up with oil filed workers I found out on my last trip.

OK. La Quinta in Las Cruces, NM. There are two of them within two blocks of each other (1 newer, 1 older). We stayed in each on two different trips where we dead-headed home. Left the rig in Phoenix for the next race. Also stayed at the La Quinta in Ft Stckton, dead-heading on the way back to Phoenix. BTW, La Quinta's are dog friendly.
