Many people combine Zion and Bryce but if you really want to see both parks and have the time I would encourage you to camp at both parks. We took a 3 month camping trip concentrating on the Colorado Plateau and spent a week at each park. We visited a lot of other parks but we did want to stay in the parks so those sites were reserved. In between we winged it. If you carry bicycles, the shuttle buses can take your bikes to the farthest point and ride back. Zion was particularly fun as it was downhill, my kind of riding. Carry a lock so you can hike to and thru the Narrows and ride back. Most all of the N. parks we visited were very bike friendly but few have electric. Solar was all we needed. It barely rained our whole trip. Though it is hot during the day, only once did we feel that we needed ac and that was at Lee's Ferry campground where we stayed prior to our rafting trip thru the Grand Canyon. Everywhere else it was pleasantly cool in the evening.

Thanks for your imput. We just got back and what you said is true. I wish we could have spent more time in each park. We put 5000 miles on our new camper. Great trip.

Glad you had a good time. Now you know where you want to return to and where to spend more time.

Same here! DW and I are in the planning stages now. Mapping out best roads etc. Going to take roughly a month and enjoy as much as we can take in.

Traded in our Forest River Surveyor SV291 for a new TT. New one is a Thor manufactured SportTrek 334 Touring Edition. I like FR Forums so much I refuse to find another forum😄.

We are really excited about going out west with the new TT. Reading as much as I can. Roads are definitely a factor as this new TT being 37',I really don't want to get in to roads that are too twisty. Can't wait!

We went to Zion/Bryce early this fall (2016). And we go to the Grand Canyon a couple times a year now.

Zion/Bryce - as has already been noted you can use the tunnel in the park. Check restrictions to see if you'll have to purchase a special tunnel pass for your rig. We didn't, but did get some minor grief from 1 park ranger on our way out (she just HAD to measure us). Bryce will be about a 90 minute drive from Zion, but bear in mind it's SEVERAL thousand feet HIGHER in elevation so it will be much cooler at Bryce. FYI - the Brew Pub across the foot bridge from the Zion campground has great craft beer. ;-)

Grand Canyon - we usually stay in the cheaper campground since we're a pop-up. The free WiFi in the laundromat/showers is iffy at best. But the Grand Canyon Library has PC's you can 'check out' and use for free for a couple hours. That worked just fine for checking emails and updating FB.

Enjoy ...

Getting ready to make reservations and map out roads. Leaving from Chicago. Stopping at Little Big Horn first, then on to Glacier NP. I know I need to take 464 from Browning.

Going on to Yellowstone/ Grand Teton and staying at Headwaters Campground. So my first question. Route shows leave Glacier and go straight through, 89-287-15, has anyone taken this route, and how is the terrain through there?

Looks like we go right through the middle of these parks,our TT is 37',are these roads going to be too challenging? When we leave there we are going to Fort Collins Colorado. Does anyone have a good route for that leg?
