  1. Sometimes the literature spec rates are bare bones.... meaning no awnings, for one thing. So your weight may be higher.
  2. Oops.... guess I didn't understand the questions. If you just want to rent a car then call a car rental just like you would do anywhere. San Francisco area is large.... there are probably lots of car rental places. Google. A toad is a vehicle you hook onto the motorhome and tow behind. That's what I thought you meant.
  3. Google? You would need a tow package already on your RV and rent a vehicle that can be towed 4-down that already has the tow equipment. I don't know if this is possible for renting. You need to do some investigation.

    AZ: Canyon de Chelly, Nat'l Mon.; Pipe Spring Nat'l Mon.; Sunset Crater at Flagstaff - stay at Bonito national forest campground by the entrance gate. . lovely. Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood to tour Sedona, Jerome and Prescott, Petrified Forest Nat'l Park; it might be too hot to tour the Phoenix or Tucson areas but lots to do there UT: Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (no kill) by Kanab, UT - sign up for the amazing tour in a beautiful red canyon setting. Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is a good place to stay. You won't believe the color of the sand! Monument Valley
  5. I just Googled and only found this one article. I don't think anyone knows about this. I do know people buy collars and leashes as a fashion accessory and nothing more. I would never rely on looking at the color and guessing what it meant. That's ridiculous. https://www.petsplusus.com/pet-information/lifestyle/meaning-behind-colour-coded-dog-leashes-and-collars
  6. You might want to look into Venture In RV at Show Low, AZ. I believe it's a Thousand Trails/Encore park if that helps but I would guess anyone could stay. We have friends staying there and the park is very active. From Payson to Springerville, AZ is where all the Phoenix/Tucson folks go to cool off! It ranges from 6,000 - 8,000' elevation. https://www.rvonthego.com/arizona/venture-in-rv-resort/?utm_source=yext&utm_medium=directory&utm_campaign=Yext Directory Listing Personally, we didn't care for Ruidoso, NM but that's just us. You may find it different.
  7. 5 days with drive time from Phoenix for cool? Anywhere from Payson to Springerville.... with Springerville being the coolest. Lots of national forest campgrounds along the whole route
  8. June trip - 8 days - I'd recommend: - anywhere from Payson, AZ east to Springerville, AZ - North Rim Grand Canyon - Cedar Breaks Nat'l Monument, Cedar City, UT - Bryce National Park, Utah In June you don't want to go to any of the Maricopa County parks in the Phoenix area (where you live) You know what the temps will be! The Colorado River areas in Arizona will be 115 deg. Sedona and Prescott can be hot
  9. Sorry.... we didn't stay a summer but it was in the 90's when we were there before heading up to Stanley, ID
  10. Caldwell/Boise area is very hot in summer. The OP wants to get away from heat. I'd recommend Red River, NM, Eagle Nest, NM, Pagosa Springs, CO.
  11. We wintered in or around the same area and that's where we established our primary care. We didn't have to stay in the same place but we stayed in the same state where we could easily get to him, if needed. It works just fine if you're not being monitored for something serious although we have known travelers on dialysis who seem to manage. Occasionally we needed an urgent care for simple things as we traveled different states and once we had excellent care in Jasper Alberta Canada for a gallbladder attack. We did have to pay directly - no insurance but it was extremely reasonable. She even called as we were traveled across Canada to see how I was.
  12. January through March will limit you to the southern states. Don't try to drive north with a RV. I wouldn't even recommend traveling along I-40 highway. Stay in the vicinity of I-10 for your touring. Campgrounds are found nearly everywhere. They can be RV parks, national parks, state parks, county and city parks. Here is one site for finding campgrounds. There are many more. Just plug in the state and city and lots of options there or in the nearby vicinity will pop up. https://www.campgroundreviews.com/ Have fun planning the trip!
  13. 287 in Oklahoma is only approx. 40-50 miles before entering Colorado. Not doable? I guess that wouldn't be enough to avoid it for me. Drive slower.
