Not to be a smart a&* or rude....but I-10 runs east west and not really anywhere near the GC. I will assume you mean I-15 to Hurricane. You can also go up to Page from I-40.

If you're coming from Texas via I-10 into Arizona, you'll pick up I-17 north to Flagstaff. Then take Hwy 89 north and either 89 or 89A will get you to Jacob Lake.

Yes I-10 to I-17 to US 89 than US 89A to Jacob Lake. As the North Rim is 1000' higher than the south it gets cold.
Here is a picture from a few years ago when we stayed at Jacob Lake.

After you go to the tourist spots at the North Rim get a map for the forest roads. Take a ride down on some of those. Most don't require a 4X4.

You can end up out there all by yourself & walk right out to the edge and have views like this.

We backed right up to the edge & ate lunch and no one else was in sight.

Or if you want to boondock, drive farther in, much closer to the GCNP. Here is where I camped in July:

Concerning the road, I was taken by surprise by the twists and turns of the last few miles of Hw 89A just before you arrive at Jacob Lake, so be alert there. Otherwise 89 and 89A are very good roads. In fact, north of Flagstaff, there are a couple places where 89 is perfectly straight for a few miles where you have to watch your speed because it is slightly downhill, so all of a sudden you are going 80 mph. The Hw 67 south to the north rim is very good.

89 & 89A are good roads and no problem with a MH. We have never stayed at any full service park at the North Rim so sorry can't help you there.

Depending on when you travel, be aware that AZ 67 from Jacob Lake to the North Rim closes for the winter, usually by Dec 1. Check with NPS.gov or AZ511.com before commiting yourself. It is a long drive back around to the South Rim.
