Vegas to Grand Canyon to Yellow Stone

We are on our cross country trip from Virginia and are currently in Vegas. What would be our best route to see The Grand Canyon and then on to Yellow Stone? We are in a 34' class A gas with toad. Back tracking will be OK.

From Vegas take 93 to I-40 east to Williams, AZ and north on 64 to the Grand Canyon. From the Canyon, exit via 64 east to 89 north to Page, AZ (you'll encounter a well marked easy detour because of a landslide last year). Continue on 89 to Kanab, Utah (you could also do Zion Nat'l Park) and north on 89 (take in Bryce Nat'l Park, also). Continue on 89 to Provo, Utah and I-15. Then I-15 to Idaho Falls and Hwy 20 into West Yellowstone. At Idaho Falls if you want to take in Grand Teton Nat'l Park before Yellowstone, take Hwy 26 to Alpine, Wyoming and pick up 89 north into Jackson Wyoming, Grand Teton and continue north to Yellowstone. Have a great trip!

Another route from Grand Canyon would be to go N on US 89, N on US 160 until it meets US 191. Follow that to Moab, UT and Arches NP. Continue N on US 191 to Vernal, UT and Dinosaur Nat. Mon., Flaming Gorge, Rock Springs, WY and on N US 191 to Jackson and Grand Teton NP. Then up the Rockefeller Parkway to Yellowstone.

You might want to get a copy of the Mountain Directory, it really helps you pick routes through the mountains. https://www.mountaindirectory.com/mtnshop/
For example, Teton Pass, between Idaho Falls and Jackson is a very steep (+10%) pass I've driven a number of times but NOT in my RV. Likewise, US 14A in eastern WY, and a number of other routes to be avoided.

Think about the North Rim instead of the South Rim, since you are going into UT anyway.
