Yes we are from Ontario. The plan WAS to leave mid June 2021 and go through US visa SD and up to Banff-Jasper across to B.C. to Vancouver island. We have 2019 Jayco Greyhawk 29’ towing Equinox. We have a back up COVID plan of Ontario to Jasper,Banff, Vancouver Island. Have been across Rockies twice as a passenger in a car on Tcanada. I was not thrilled then so motorhome and tow ��. You all have done this and think nothing of it. Maybe after we go and come back we will be brave enough to add Yellowstone to the list

Well , being a life long BC resident may give me a slightly different view of mountain driving , but there are still a number of BC roads I'll avoid in my coach . The Icefields Parkway ,# 93, Jasper to Banff , has a couple of sections that will give you pause ; if drop offs at the road side are an issue; and then there's the new Park Bridge on Highway one east of Golden . Consider going to Banff first , driving north on the 93 to Jasper ; you'll be climbing the worst sections of the route , instead of coming down . Then from Jasper west on #16 to the #5 south to Kamloops , now from Kamloops to Vancouver is perhaps the bigger issue than the routes through the Rockies , Highway 1 through the Frazer Canyon is the scenic route , but can be hard if you have a nervous passenger , #5 the Coquihalla, is a high mountain freeway you get to Hope quickly but the drop from the summit to Hope requires your full attention and very close eye on speed and brake use . Freeway from Hope to Vancouver will remind you of home ; only issue is most of it's 2 lane not the 4/6+ of the TO area, ongoing widening of the road. There are any number of RVs of all descriptions on these roads every day; through the summer anyhow , so take your time you will get through this.
Photo of the Park Bridge , yes it looks daunting , but you should have seen the section of road it replaced ... well maybe you did , and that's your bad memory of your travels.
