Is it SHayach to take 3 kids (including a 5 week old) on a road trip on a RV through Glacier YS and Teton?

How much time would I need?

Is it too late to plan for a trip in 2 weeks?

How many kids in car seats?  Could be a problem if more than one---I've never seen more than one spot in a rental RV that was really good for a car seat.  Otherwise, I'd say to go for it, with a relaxed schedule.

While it could be a very nice trip, here is what my concerns would be.

1. How would you deal with a 5 week old in an RV for 2 weeks?
2. How would you carry the baby through pathways, walkways etc. (Forget about hiking )
3. Depending on how old the other kids are, would they enjoy a restricted trip because of the babies limitations?

How much time would I need?

I did Yellowstone in 3 days (2 nights ) Grand Teton in a day and a half. Could have spent one more day that was enough for me. ( I had an eight month old ). But a week would definitely be enough since your not really hiking.

Is it too late to plan for a trip in 2 weeks?

No

Since sleeping accommodations are taken care of (RV) there's nothing that really needs advance planning at all, 2 weeks should be ample time for planning.

2. Baby carrier. Even a stroller would work for the vast majority of spots.

He wants to do GNP as well, so two weeks isn't too much.

And he'd still need to make plans for campgrounds, even with an RV - although it will obviously be waaaay simpler than hotels. I'd be more worried about finding available spots than anything else.

Thank you for the advice.

My kids' ages are 3.5, 2.3, and 5weeks. Are they too yound to enjoy such a trip? What are some of the activities besides hiking?

I would have a budget to go all out on RV as I dont need to spend on Car and hotel. Can anyone recommend a good company?

There are stuff that can be nice but I wouldn't say that it's the recommended age

RV through Glacier
Just bear in mind you can't take the RV on Going-to-the-Sun road.

I would say they're too young to really appreciate the trip but not too young to go.
As for activities, pretty much the same as anywhere else for that age. Pretty much swimming and playgrounds, IIRC there's not all that much more for 2-3s.

I took a 3 year old and 5 year old. They were definitely too young to appreciate it. Smart move to wait:

Marriot is a cat 7... and 500 a night
I booked the alpine motel Economy room for $135 a night.
I did bring my own towels and blanket and hope for the best
It seems to be the cheapest room in town

35k a night should be just under $250.
