We are Jim and Cynthia VanderMolen and are new members as of today.
We recently retired about a year ago and are beginning to enjoy the recreational benefits that come with retirement. We live in Michigan and spend some portions of winter in the South. Our recreational vehicle is a 30 foot travel trailer.
At the present time we are considering a vacation to Yellowstone and are contemplating whether to include the trailer or stay in motels. We have never traveled for any length in the trailer. I would like to pick anyones brain as to the roads we would be covering, altitude problems, etc. I intend to go in the south entrance at Jackson Hole. We just purchased a 3/4 ton Silverado with plenty of hauling capacity but I am concerned about the elevation changes as we have never been there. I'm willing to listen to anybodys advice.
Hope to hear from someone,
Jim and Cynthia,
My husband John and I went on our first RV trip last August/September. We went into Yellowstone from the South entrance after going thru Jackson Hole. We drive a 37 foot class A and had no problems with the altitude whatsoever. There are numerous campgrounds, so a motel room is completely un-neccessary. Plus it is a better way to meet other travelers. We drove up thru and around the park, then headed east thru Wyoming, and on to Mount Rushmore. Jogged down to Kansas to visit some friends, then over to see the Grand Canyon. Had a wonderful time, and met some great people.
This year it is possible that we may try a trip to Alaska ( still debating).
Good luck to you both, and enjoy.
