If you're on I-40 don't forget to stop off in Winslow, Arizona and stand on the corner.

On your way to Needles, get fuel at the truck stops at exit 9 in AZ just before the Az/Kalifornia state line. It't way cheaper than Needles or for that matter, Kalifornia. We just made the trip to NorCal the last 2 weeks.

For overnites, Tucumcari, Gallup (United RV park) and Holbrook have decent RV parks.

i'd second the recommendation for Oasis as we've stayed there many times.

we've never stayed at the places you mentioned in Tucumcari but we have stayed at Blaze-In-Saddle RV park and found it be a very nice (and inexpensive) stay.

And the OP mentioned traveling I-40. much of the highway in the eastern third of Oklahoma is under construction with the worst part being the sections with concrete dividers on each side of the lane for miles on end and some points seemingly very narrow. we traveled west through OK no less than nine times last year and it wasn't uncommon to see a big truck in front of us hit the wall.

We recently drove from Asheville to Tulsa, mostly on I-40. It's a beautiful drive through Tennessee and the road is decent. Loads of semi traffic on I-40.

I-40 near Sallisaw OK has two sections of road construction that is narrow and really rough...really rough!!

The I-40 bridge in Memphis is closed. The re-route is the I-55 bridge and depending on the time of day or night, you could be parked on I-55 for quite a while. If you must go through Memphis, 11:30 PM is when we experienced the best time to pass through. We recently spent the night in West Memphis. There is an exit with a Cracker Barrel and an Arkansas Welcome Center on I-55 near I-40.

I have also recently driven through IL on I-70 down to St. Louis and then on to I-44 through Missouri and Oklahoma. I-44 does have less semi traffic than I-40.

I-44 in MO is great. I-44 in OK is good as well, but a toll road from the state line to OKC and then you can join I-40.
