What rest areas are closed? Drove from AZ to MT last week and had no issues with closed rest areas.

we've been thru AZ, NM, TX, OK and MO since ladt Wednesday. the AZ rest areas on I-40 were closed but all the rest areas in the other states were open except one on I-40 near Tucumcari that was closed for maintenance. in any case all the truck stops are open, Wallys are open...lots of places to take a break.

If traveling in your RV use your onboard facilities. No need to go inside the rest area building.

Then I'd pull off an exit and park where I see an area; perhaps a truck stop/WalMart or a grocery store parking lot. Do your thing, have lunch or take a nap and be on your way. You don't need a designated 'rest area'. It might even be easier if you traveled the secondary roads rather than interstates. Easier places to pull off for a rest. We rarely used rest areas in our travels.

This. We seldom have to travel very far for a place to pull over on the old roads. Frequently when traveling the US signed routes, there are road side table mini parks.
