Yeah... the roads are real nice... and you won't be going very fast since all of the area is scenic...
I did that route on June 20th...
I stayed at the West Yellowstone KOA and I was very happy with them. If you are in a hurry to get to Jackson, then leave early in the morning... before the tourists and sight seeing buses start moving.

We were able to get reservations at Fishing Bridge in May for July, maybe someone canceled but being the only park with hookups it was okay. It is definitely not a place to hang out in, you will want to explore Yellowstone from there.
However the Grand Tetons are amazing and don't miss Jackson Hole. They have RV parking in a commercial lot with plenty of room and it was definitely a must see for us...you won't be sorry.

A very scenic campground between Yellowstone and Jackson is located at Coulter Bay on Jackson Lake. Great place to wake up very early and take sunrise photos of the Tetons with the lake in the foreground! We have generally seen moose at Coulter Bay too.

Not sure where you are going after Jackson but if you go across the Teton pass be careful. Up and down are a healthy grade. Gear down as much as you can and take it easy on the brakes.

Teton has some of the steepest grades (10%) in the USA, but a fun road with some fantastic scenery. But it would be out of the way if you are coming down through Jackson and then heading to SLC. Stay on 89 and go over Hoback pass.

Agree that US 89 is the way to go. Had no problems with it when we towed our Mini Lite through there.

There is a campground called Indian Campground with a good steak house across the street.... Right in Buffalo....
There is a KOA in Buffalo as well... many options off of I-90
From Buffalo we took hwy 16, then north on 20 to Greybull and then west on hwy 14.... to Cody...it was an easy pull...
I'd avoid the BigHorn mountains pulling something long... it's a great run on a Harley but I remember thinking I wouldn't pull my trailer through there.... that's a big hill.

Great campground at Colter Bay, they take big rigs there, just dry camping. A beautiful place

Colter Bay RV Park has full hook-ups.... Coulter Bay Campground is dry camping... Both take big rigs.... We were at the RV park last month and love it.... It's one of our favorite CG's up there.... Another about 1.5 miles from the South gate is Flagg Ranch which we also stayed at last month.... We use it as our base camp for going in and out of Yellowstone.... You'll need to make reservations for both... We've stayed in both at least 6-7 times....
