Newby to this site

We are going to be traveling from Saskatchewan to Mesa next year in our truck and 5th wheel trailer in December. I am wondering if you 66 year olds have any tips for long distance travel I have had a 5th wheel for about 15 years but have not travelled that far at one time, about 30 hours of driving one way. Is there any thing in particular I need to know.We are currently in Mesa and have driven with a KIA Sorrento, other than a real wind storm in Wyoming and a snow storm east of Flagstaff AZ it didn't seem to bad.

Howdy and welcome to the forums! The only tip I have is drive and live at a slow pace. So what if you only do 200 - 300 miles a day. We took our MH cross country in May (did over 6500 miles in 36 days) and we planned our stops at 250 - 300 mile intervals.

Thanks for the encouragement and the welcoming to this site, my other question is I will be carrying a generator for power in the event camp grounds are closed in the northern stares .Is it wise to install a new heavy duty bumper on the trailer and fasten the light plant to the new bumper or leave it in the truck, I find it very heavy to be lifting in and out. Has any one had trouble with the extended length on the trailer.
