Most RVers make reservations online during their trip planning process and have no problems. So can you!
But your rig size will limit your access to Natl park campgrounds, and some of them are so popular that reservation may be required a year in advance. There are good private campgrounds near the parks.
The Allstays ap is a great gateway to camps, reviews, fuel, propane, repair services, etc.
if I depended on caravans, I would be very tired from the schedules, and broke from the fees.
However, caravans may be a way to get your feet wet and learn the ropes from the RVers you will travel with.
If you Google "irv2 caravans" you will get a lot of ideas.
