We are also planning a trip out west next summer (mid June) in our new 364, and we are just down the road from you in Tipp City. We have 3 families going as of now. We are going to take a northernly route out and circle back down through the southern states. Have to be back by July 6th for a weekend in Ft Loramie

We live in Cincinnati and took a 2 week trip out west in a Sunseeker 3010ds back in 2013. We have since upgraded to a Georgetown 351ds. You will have a blast. Below is our rough itinerary.

Day 1 CVG to Normal, IL
Day 2 Normal, IL to Badlands
Day 3 explore badlands, stop by Wall Drugs on way to Custer State Park. Awesome campsites
Day 4-5 Explore around Custer State Park
Day 6 up early to Mt Rushmore and then onto Red Lodge, MT
Day 7 Red Lodge to Yellowstone via NE entrance - amazing climb and drive. Take your time though in the RV.
Day 8-10 In Yellowstone
Day 11 travel to Grand Tetons
Day 12 head to Jackson Hole
Day 13-14 Jackson Hole - make sure you white water raft on Snake River
Day 15-16 Head home

Amazing family time! The first meal we ate out was in Jackson Hole. All other were at campsites or picnics we made for the travel day. We made a blog about the trip. Private message me and I will send you the link.

JCW has a nice plan for 2 weeks. You could do 2 weeks in Colo. and it easy to do 2 week in Utah.

Hey JCW, how was that drive up the Beartooth? Did you have a toad? I have driven it many times in a car (and snowmobile) but wasn't sure about taking the motorhome. I have aunt/uncle that live in Cooke City, and if we can visit them without taking the north entrance, would save us many hours of drive time.

Two weeks is a relatively short time out west. I have been to every state out west and most of the national parks. My advice would be to make a list of places you would most like to see. Also be realistic on how many miles per day you are willing to drive. Also try to plan how many days you want to spend at each location. For example, Yellowstone is very large and requires at least 3 days (not counting arrival and departure) to see most of it. Jackson Hole requires 2 or 3 days especially if you raft the Snake. I rafted it in late spring when the water was wild! Places like the Badlands, Rushmore, Custer Battlefield, Devil's Tower can be seen in sequence on the way to Yellowstone. From Ohio you will need at least two travel days pushing hard to get to/from anywhere near these locations. With 14 days available you will have about 10 days to see the rest, so plan carefully. You don't want to spend most of your time rushing from place to place so set your priorities so you spend your time wisely.

We did that trip, but from Texas a few years ago. AAA has some good stuff and I use RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks as well.
