Doug, I grew up in Cloverdale. My parents owned the bakery in town.
That was back when 101 went straight thru town.
Now 101 bypasses downtown.

Great town to grow up in.

We second the recommendation for Flying Flags in Buelton. My wife and I have stopped trying to do San Francisco to Long Beach in one day as of years ago. Flying Flags is one of the best RV parks we have ever encountered, and is only a few hours' drive into the greater LA area. Dine at AJ Spurs, but fast for a day or two before hand. Great food, and lots of it. US 101 is far more restful than grinding south on I-5. You will want to start fresh the second day on your way to Anaheim. LA area traffic is brutal every hour of every day, especially when you are towing. Avoid the I-405 South if you can. Traffic simply crawls past the airport, and the aggressiveness and rudeness of the other drivers is unbelievable. We usually take 101 south from Buelton to Ventura, then cross over to the I-5 via SR 126 - a pretty drive, and no hassles, but a few miles longer than the more direct routes. It usually makes it easier to keep my blood pressure down!!

If you're going down the 5 we use Santa Nella RV park, it's quick and easy - full hook ups and they usually give us a double spot so we don't need to unhook. It's not a place I'd stay in for more than overnight.

I heard the camping world in Bakersfield has free camping with 2 hookup sites. Bear mountain rv park off the 99 looked decent as well. $27 per night for full hookups near the freeway.

Coalinga, depending on the wind, can have a strong taste of beef ranch in the air. Can also be beef ranch cloudy in the Harris Ranch area.

We drove from SF to Los Angeles yesterday and today. We ended up going down to Castaic, CA and stayed at Valencia Travel Village. It set us up for a nice short drive today- about 70 miles and about 2 hours of driving (including a fuel stop).

I'll have pics at some point...

That's the most recommended place for LA visits.
Also near Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Close is an understatement- you could all but throw rocks at it from the campground.
