What a co accident! A friend of mine who is going with his family also with us suggested me yesterday to go together from Phoenix to Los Angeles. Perhaps he doesn't realize how hot it should be. Personally after your several points, I would be open to start in Vegas and then proceed to the north-east via number of parks and finally finish in Denver. I understand that it is going to be still hot there but, for sure, not so much as in Phoenix. Although this I find my tour more attractive because number of places you all recommended. I also realize that I cannot cover to long distance, that is why Yellowstone I will do perhaps next year. Anyway I will show our discussion to him and we decide together what is best solution for us. After then I will report to you about where we are going. Thanks for your kindness and please do not stop if you have any further suggestions. All are more than welcome.

Here's a website that might be of help in determining your route: National Parks Loop. While this website is for a tour company, the itinerary should give you some good ideas.

It starts and ends in San Francisco and covers 16 days. Since your trip will be longer than 16 days, you could either spend more time at some of the stops, or add additional stops.

The one place the loop doesn't visit, and which is a "must see" IMO, if you're in the area of Zion and Bryce NPs, is Capital Reef NP.

Rafal, your suggestion of starting in Las Vegas and traveling via national parks to Denver may be a very good plan. America's national parks really are worth seeing and there are several in that area. And that trip will expose you and your family to a greaty variety of topography, from desert to forested mountains.

Several years ago, when our children were the ages of yours we took several weeks to camp across the country. The children enjoyed the trip at the time, but now as adults they look back at this trip as one of the highlights of their childhood, both in seeing the country, but also the experience of being together as a family all day every day for several days. We found it helpful to establish some "rules for traveling" before we left. Everyone had a job to do as we set up camp each day and as we prepared to leave the next. Everyone was free to comment and even to complain, but not to "whine" about the day's activities. We made a point of talking about the "best part" of each day and the things we learned. We also purposely planned "kid" things along the way. For example, kids can enjoy a museum just as adults can, but ours also really loved a day of riding horses in Colorado. You will find that the national parks have trained personnel to present programs for families, including children.

One more thing. If this is your first time in a RV, you may want to look for a school that gives drivers instruction in how to handle a RV. There are several in the U.S., and perhaps there is one in your own country. A half day of learning to drive one of these things may save a lot of trouble later.
We hope you have a wonderful time visiting our country!

Thanks for all posts and advices.

So the trip is now planed in August:

2nd (Saturday) - arriving to Denver
3rd (Sunday) site seeing in Denver
4th (Monday) picking up our RVs and starting our tour
23rd (Saturday) arriving to Los Angeles, dropping off our RVs
24th (Sunday) visiting Disneyland with kids
25th (Monday) site seeing in LA, shopping, having a rest
26th (Tuesday) departure

Now, I have to find nice route between Denver and LA for almost 20 days. I hope to see a lot of N.P. including Sequoia N.P. The only doubt I have is, if it is possible to drive by certain roads for 32" RV? I mean about roads market as yellow on the map e.g. numbers: 24, 12, 95 and similar in Utah.

How do you find the schedule ?
