Shafer Trail is more suited to a 4x4 although I guess one could do it with a regular car if the road conditions are right. It's a fun drive!

Stay at one of the state parks near New Orleans. We stayed at St Bernard had no problem getting a spot about the same time you are going through. Itís an easy drive into the city.

My Grand Cherokee did it easily. His 2012 Buick Enclave is not as capable but it is an SUV and if one takes it easy, I think it could be done.

Also don't forget the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola on the way to NOLA. Plenty of RV parking at the museum. There are several state parks to stay at within a short drive.

There are many Jeep Rentals in Moab or a Jeep Tour (someone else driving). It's an awesome experience if you don't want to take the Enclave on some easy trails.
