Mattyd.... great info, thanks, appreciate it! We are thinking your plan to go through YS to the Tetons would be best and maybe do the Mt Rushmore/Badlands on another trip. This would allow us more time to in each area which is key. Question though, where did you stay in the Tetons, Cody, etc?

We stayed at ponderosa in Cody on the weekend of July 4 and it was jam packed. Next time well stay at the Buffalo Bill Park. Tetons was Gros ventre . Yellowstone we stayed at fishing Bridge.

In Cody we too stayed at the Ponderosa. As mentioned was just ok. I made a note and will follow eliset123's suggestion next time and give the Buffalo Bill Park a try.
In Gardiner we stayed at the Rocky Mountain RV Park & Lodge. Best campground on our trip. Cleanest showers and laundry - bar none. Good pizza at K-Bar. Good breakfast at Rosie's. Next time we will book ahead and get in a fishing float trip for half a day.
In Jackson we stayed at The Virginian Lodge & RV Park. Waking distance to downtown and such. I would strongly recommend calling the visitor center in JH for pointers and make that one of your first stops when you get there.
We spent a night at the north end of the Tetons at Headwater Campgound at Flagg Ranch. Nice enough restaurant and of an evening had enjoyable naturalist presentations in the lobby.
In YS we stayed at Grant Village and at Canyon Village. We would have stayed at Fishing Bridge but they were booked up - it was our first choice as it is centrally located. I wouldn't also mind trying to stay at Mammoth Hots Springs as well.
Now we left Ohio on Labor Day weekend and were gone for two weeks. We had no reservations whatsoever. We were determined to head west with the idea we wanted to see JH, Tetons, and YS since it all together but if the weather had been rainy we were going to head south in to CO and UT. Regardless we were going back to Custer for the second year in a row. We love the area around Custer SP. We never hurried but never stayed two nights in the same place. Our travels were not pulling a camper but rather in a truck camper.
I was told we didn't need advance reservations in YS. WRONG. They start shutting some of the campgrounds down in September so there are fewer to stay in. I would strongly suggest having reservations in YS. Without reservations we found campgrounds but we fit a lot of places being just a truck camper.

Glacier and Yellowstone

We left Glacier around 8:30 and made it to Helena (Costco) at 1:00 or so and had lunch and pick up a few things, gas up and got into West Yellowstone @5:00.

These are great roads and it was a easy drive, there is
Camp Three Forks, MT, but not very good RV Park. Just take your time and you will be glade you made it in one day.
