A couple of weeks ! All you'll see is pavement and white lines.
A number of years back I decided to go from Kelowna B.C. to Halifax and figured three weeks would be enough time . Only made it to Ottawa and had to put on a couple of 800 MILE days to get back to work on time.
JMHO; I'd say for an enjoyable trip you should take a month.

Vancouver trip

I agree that two weeks is way too short. Granted, crossing the prairies is just a straight shot without many points of interest. Plot your entire route, figure out the number of miles and how many you plan to drive each day. 6000 / 14 days = 429 miles per day, assuming no days off to rest or go sightseeing and no equipment failures to repair. The trip back won't be as interesting, since you have seen it all before (sort of). Sounds like work. Fly to Calgary or Edmonton and rent might be an option to consider.

Choose an interesting destination 450 miles from home. Maybe a beach city on the Atlantic coast. Pack up the family and leave on Saturday morning. Arrive, walk on the beach, have dinner, sleep, wake up, walk on the beach, have breakfast, drive home on Sunday, go to work on Monday. Then ask yourself and your family if you want to do that for two whole weeks?

That would be a marathon trip. Even if you had multiple drivers.

Ok then , 5 weeks is much more like it .
When you start out , breeze through the close by areas where you've been before , and when you get to new areas slow down and enjoy the view, visit the points of interest . Provincial and National Parks make great stops.

Capilano River RV campground is an excellent location in Vancouver. You can walk or cycle across the Lions Gate bridge to Stanley Park and downtown. Their off-season rates were quite reasonable, but I don't know how much they may raise them in the summer.
