Hi Connie! Welcome to IRV2. The trip out west is amazing. The folks you rent the RV from will go through the operations of the rig. Be sure to ask them questions if you need to. Be sure to check out the RVing with pets section further down the page. We travel with a dog and cat and leave them in the RV while we sightsee. Just be sure to leave the AC on for them or the windows open. Enjoy your trip and be safe.

HI, wow, we started out renting a 27 C 13 years ago. We now travel "most time" in a 36 foot A. Of course we are retired so that makes a difference. You are young so 8 hours of driving may not kill you. We consider 6 hours and no more than 2 days in a row to be the limit. Your teenager may find more than 2 days back to back to be a bit much also. A lot of Mom and Dad time and very little wandering around time.

To the extent possible stay off interstates, they tend to be boring. I 40 is a particular case of boring and we were on I 5 in CA and after 30 miles we crossed over to 99 and it was smoother and more pleasant in every way, no time loss either. (that was from Scaramento to the LA area).

Welcome to the RV world it is a kick

We are right now in Pigeon Forge TN and will move to Asheville tomorrow.

Welcome to the forum Connie. You will be able to take your pets with you to the Grand Canyon. The only requirement is that you do not go below into the canyon with your pets.

we did the cross country from PA to northern California...we headed south from PA March 5...stayed in Nasville Country camp grounds...very nice...clean. We traveled along route 40 to Little Rock and stayed at a campground by the Arkansas River....we were stopped in Tenneesee and Arkansas LEOs...first because we were severing because of high winds...but in Arkansas our entire MH was checked out...every cabinet opened and inspected..found nothing...so we were sent on our way...I understand that it was because of out of state tags... on to Amarillo...enjoyed the 72OZ steak house...then to Arizona where we spent two days in the Grand Canyon National Park..our MH is 29 feet so we could stay inside the park....we were often greeted by Elk...then on our way to Needles...spent a great night there and then north up 5 to Bakersfield..The ride across the Mojave Desert was brutal! Winds and sand storms the way to Bakersfield! but the rest of the trip to Northern Cal was uneventful!

Not sure what you're asking. LEO is an acronym. Law Enforcement Officer. Not a derogitory term as I interpret it.

We rented a few times from cruise America and others , we learnt
1 always mark scrapes and dents before leaving lot
2. Do not rent their bedding or cups etc ( care package ) it's outrages and poor quality
3 do not rent their bike rack , if you tell them you have your own they still charge extra for wear and tear !! !!!! UP TO YOU
4 6 hours or 300 miles per day in basic c class ( no sound insulation ) is more than enough
5. Don't focus on destination , be flexible and try to work with the kids , you want them to come next year !
6 relax , enjoy the adventure and don't be afraid to ask for help from other Rv s ,

If an LEO wants to stop you he CAN find a reason. But let's not degenerate into an LEO debate!
