We have a 28' AS and extended bed P/U. Is that within restrictions for this route? About 50'

I would have thought you would have long since finished this trip. I listed reasons for going the route through Page. I googled for you and the answer is 40' for a single vehicle and 50' for a tv and trailer - good for round trip within 7 days..... Enjoy

We had to replace our Dometic Frig and that took TWO weeks at Camping World. Many mishaps. We are right at 50' long. Would love the scenery but still not decided. Leaving GC in about 3 more days..great stay!

Tunnel

My husband and I drove our 23 foot silver dream to the Zion Mount Carmel tunnel last week. And it was awesome!

Great information! We'll be making the trip out west later in the year from Florida. What about a campground to stay at while visiting Zion NP? Recommendations?

I'd recommend the Watchman campground-- with a reservation if you plan to be there during the high season, which is April through October. The electrical hook-up is a bonus. We seldom run our AC, but made an exception in Zion one September-- it was so unrelievedly hot. The South Campground has mature shade trees, but people start lining up at the entrance to it to bag sites very early in the morning.

The tunnel is no problem for any but the really big rigs, but there is a fee (including for our sixteener) and they allow only one-way traffic through it most of the time. It is regulated by rangers at either end of the tunnel.

Again ... great information! I'm glad I found this thread. The information everyone posted on driving to/in Zion & accommodations will be very helpful come October. I also just checked information in the MOUNTAIN DIRECTORY WEST for mountain pass information as well. This is one area on our six week South West trip that had me worried ... the 'unknown'. We should be set to go now! Fingers crossed we can still pull this off.

Also badkat ... let me know how your travels went thru this area ... road conditions & where you stayed. As we have a similar set-up.

THANKS everyone!
Alice

We traveled on hwy 12 three years ago pulling our 27ft A/S and it was a big surprise when we got to the Escalante staircase area. Very scary road. Check out youtube videos on hwy 12 the scariest road in America. We made it okay but it's a 16 percent grade no shoulders huge drop offs both side.
