my advice is not to do California in the summertime. the weather is great in the spring and fall, so no need to have to compete for campsites and deal with crowds in the summer.
if you have to do the summer, make sure you get reservations 5-6 months in advance.
and just realize that the West is BIG and make sure you don't push yourself by having a limited time to make the trip.

our longest trip was a 4000 mile two week trip from Maryland to Yellowstone and back with stops at the Badlands and Mount Rushmore. It was quite a trip in a popup but we had a blast.

Last summer was 2000 miles: Home (in CT) to Outer Banks NC, Mrytle Beach,
Shenandoah NP, then home.

This July we are taking 5 weeks to travel roughly 7500 miles: From home to Albuquerque NM, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Yosemite, Redwood NP, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and finish the trip with 3 days in Cedar Point Ohio before returning back home.

I threatened the wife that we would put National Lampoons Vacation on continuous 24 loop in the DVD player....."Holiday Road!!"
