Guide to a Southwest RV Road Trip

The United States is filled with amazing scenery and adventure opportunities that many people seek out. When you own an RV, you’re either letting it sit in your driveway, or you’re actively using it. If you’re one of those people who let it sit in the driveway getting old, STOP DOING THAT!

The first thing you should do is upgrade your RV. You may want to consider updating the RV siding and entry door. The outside should get a makeover before you start using it again. After getting your RV cleaned up, you should pick an adventurous road trip!

Try a 10-Day Trip:

A 10-Day RV trip in the Southwest gives you plenty to do. Riding around in your RV through Monument Valley and stopping at the Grand Canyon are just two of the things you’ll get to do on this trip.

Where to Start: Hemet, California or Los Angeles Area

Day 1 and 2 – A recommended first stop is Joshua Tree National Park. This is a place where you can spend a couple days at exploring, hiking, stargazing, and sunset watching. This will be a great start to your road trip.

Day 3 and 4 – After spending two days here, then you can make your way towards Zion National Parkin Utah. You will first pass through Las Vegas, Nevada before you reach Zion. Zion offers fantastic views from several of their hikes. You can go down through the Narrows or hike up to Angels Landing.

Day 5 – Spend two days at Zion, and then head over to Bryce Canyon National Park, which is just under a two-hour drive. You can spend the day here exploring the amazing canyon trails.

Day 6 – What you’ll want to do is wake up rather early on this day to head down south to the Antelope Canyonwhere you can get a guided tour by the Navajo. After visiting this wonderful place, hop back in your RV and head towards the Grand Canyon National Park.

Day 7 – You’ll have the opportunity to spend a day and a half at the Grand Canyon. There are plenty of tours you can go on exploring the breathtaking views.

Day 8 and 9 – These days are meant to drive a little further in the direction of Los Angeles. It’s always fun driving in the desert stopping along the way at small campsites watching sunsets, cooking out, and staring into the night sky. This is a great way to end the trip on while resting your legs.

Day 10 – The last day of the trip is meant to make a wild card move. If you’re planning this trip for the Spring or the Fall, we recommend hitting up a Dodger Game, or doing something eventful. It’s the best thing you can do after a long trip on the road.
