Thank you very much everyone for your fantastic input!

I think that considering a trip up the east coast could definitely be an option as well. Heading up towards Vermont, Maine, etc. would be a beautiful trip. I am going to start looking into those options and see what the family thinks sounds the most interesting.

Thank you as well, Jon, for your recommendation on having them meet me out west. I was also thinking along those lines of driving out to Denver over 2-3 days myself and picking them up at the airport. We could then head west and north for our trip. In an effort to try and keep everyone happy, I think my wife would likely fly with them as well!

Moab/Arches also looks like a really nice spot as well if the western trip ends up being an option.

Thank you again everyone!

When we had limited time we would run to an area, look at everything we could in the area and then motor home. We too live in the East. I would strongly recommend Moab, one of my favorite spots, plan on a week, five day week which is enough to get the feel of Aches and Canyons, plus run up RT 128 out of Moab, amazing drive up and then turn around and head back. Not a long drive but well worth it. Then run down to Kanab, UT and while moving south hit Bryce, then in Kanab run over to Zion, take a tour of Best Friends Animal Society and then the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Four days total for all that. Then run home.

Tiring, but well worth the effort and a trip no one will forget. We have done it so it's possible, this year we did it again but now retired had the luxury of two months.

Another option is Yellowstone, Tetons and then KOA at Lava Hot Springs and a run up to Jackson WY for the day, kids will love the place. Shops all over.

As for the reservations, many of our fast trips we stayed in KOAs, easy in and out, washers and dryers, good walking for exercise after a long day of driving and most are well run and clean and accept reservations. With gas as cheap as it is I suspect next summer a lot more people will be on the roads than in previous years.
