Smile TTrailer to Class A

We've just traded our 30' TT for a gas 36' Holiday Rambler. I'm in the early stages of planning an epic trip from south Florida via AZ to Mt Rushmore then back via WI next year in Sept.
What are your feelings and advice on towing a vehicle vs renting a car when we need one?
Secondly, are there routes we should avoid in CO? I would like to take rte 285 N to Denver from NM. Do you foresee any issues?

Before we bought our toad we tried renting for a couple of short trips. We found it to be very inconvenient and time consuming. I'm glad we have a toad (even if it is a Yaris.)
As far as the Denver route, avoid rush hours. (This goes for all large cities.)
