You drove 900 miles in one day!

How many hours did it take in your one day to drive 900 miles? It must have been a long day considering stopping for fuel,tire checks,etc.

I'm assuming you and your wife shared the driving, did any of your Sons also drive?

So jealous. This is what I have been wanting to do with my Dhaka and dd but rules at work prevent me from taking more than two weeks at a time.

That is amazing and a reason why we bought the Sunseeker! We took the Roo to Lubbock TX in April and my dh said never again. Since we have family there, that's not an option! lol. I can't wait to head back to TX in the comfort of the Sunseeker.

Here are some answers to your questions: 900 miles one day took 16 hours (6am to 10pm) it was from Rapid City to Illinois about a half hour outside Chicago. My wife and boys didn't drive, I drove all 7300 miles.

Here are the campgrounds we stayed at, all were full hookup except Yellowstone where we used the dump station upon exit. I recommend all of them except Kings Canyon, we just needed a nights stay and we didn't climb the RV several thousand feet into the park. This was located just outside the NP entrance, we un-hooked the Jeep to drive in for the day and see the large Sequoia's.
  1. ABQ - American RV Park
  2. Meteor Crater - Meteor Crater RV Park
  3. Grand Canyon - Trailer Village RV Park
  4. Lake Mead - Lake Mead RV Village at Boulder Beach
  5. Kings Canyon - Kings Canyon Mobile home park
  6. Yosemite - Yosemite Lakes RV Resort
  7. Redwoods day1 - Mad River Rapids RV Park
