From my experience this time of year in those states, you should be fine with the campgrounds, though weekends may still be crowded at some. As you noted, pay attention to highway closures and detours. Each state DOT lists their highway work on-line, and it pays to check ahead. Lots of highway construction going on this year, and it will until the weather brings an end to the season.

It sounds like a wonderful adventure, and the pace you mentioned sounds perfect! Good advice on the spare fuel, especially in the mountainous areas. The peace of mind is well worth the effort of carrying a gas can around.

Have a safe and enjoyable journey!

Shouldn't be any problems along Hiway 2. What they call the Hi Line in Montana. There should still be plenty of RV Parks available. Beware of the oil boom though centered around Williston ND as every rv space within miles of there is jammed. Plan your trip and plan to stay 150 to 200 miles either side of there.

Thanks for the tip. We will plan on getting past there before we call it a day.

How big is your generator? If it can't run A/C and you have good batteries, why bother?
I doubt they'll need the A/C in September, given the concern raised appears to be rain/snow. I've seen snow in Yellowstone on June 15th, so I suspect snow could be a real possibility in Montana in Sept.
