Shelby to Red Deer is about 5 - 6 hours driving and to be honest I'd swerve Red Deer too. By all means take Hwy 2 north through Calgary but then come off at Olds and head over to the 22 and Sundre. From there you can go north towards Rocky Mountain House.
Once the season starts up again I'm heading to Caroline, just north of Sundre to check out Boundary RV Park (BoundaryRvPark.com). I'm also very interested in Panther River (Panther River | Escape into the Wild
) which looks really nice but much closer to the mountains.
Last year I looked (didn't stay) at a couple of places around Rocky Mountain House but their websites are far more flattering than the real thing. Sundre has only one small IGA grocery store but going through Olds there is a large Walmart and a large Extra Foods both with acres of parking and access for RV's, on the main road going through the town.
PS.....cheapest gas/diesel is at Westward Ho (north side of the road) about 2km's west of the 22/27 intersection and is super easy to pull into with either a large RV or MH.
Enjoy the trip
