Easiest to drive route from Bozeman to Jackson

We are doing a meandering trip in August and have spent lots of time in both Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone so don't need to see the sites in the parks per se. What would be the easiest route to take from Bozeman, MT to Jackson, WY if we just want to do a relaxed drive that minimizes mountain passes and/or tough to navigate roads?

We are not in a rush and just want a relaxed drive. We will have our 23FB.

Have gone the backway, south on 191 to W. Yellowstone, west on 20 to Ashton, south on 32 &33 through Driggs (worth a stop) to 22 east to Jackson. There's a a long down hill grade going into Jackson. There is also a scenic loop before Ashton called the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway and a campground at the Falls if you're not in any hurry. Worth the detour.

This is the route we take all year it's really beautiful and takes about five hours.
From Bozeman head west on highway 87 to 287 south toward Ennis MT. Ennis is a beautiful little town and a nice quick stop for lunch etc. Continue south on 287 through one of the most beautiful valleys in America for about 50 miles and then take 87 once again right turn toward Island Park Idaho. After about 30 miles you'll come to Highway 20 turn right toward Ashton Idaho and continue on for about one more hour you'll arrive in Ashton take Highway 32 south to Driggs driving through the potato country with a fantastic view of the Tetons on your left. About fifteen miles south of Driggs you'll turn left on Highway 22 to Jackson and over a short mountain pass. Sounds like a great time, feel free to P/M me if you'd like more info.

P.S. we avoid 191 in the summer because it's slammed with traffic and dangerous.
