There most definitely was no cheap rental that fit my needs picking up on a Sunday from Las Vegas and returning back to Las Vegas during the week of July 4th.

I've never seen a cheap RV returning to the rental location. For these cheap deals you need to be willing to do one way.

Picking up Sunday can be hard to find period, deal or no deal.

Nice of you to hijack my trip report thread - I thought there was a new motorhome thread or have you forgotten.

If you think you are so smart, let me tell you that you most definitely are not. I also know how to get a motorhome for next to nothing. However, good luck finding a deal like that during the week of July 4th.

I'm rotf at your foolishness.
Mind-boggling why the fact that I got a good deal ticks you off like that. But in any case, I'm not that ignorant and am very well aware of the narrow terms and dates available of the deal. Although...
-1
There were deals like that available the week of July 4th. (I was planning on doing one myself but it didn't work out in the end.)

That being said, just because there were such deals available doesn't mean there was one that fit your specific needs...
Anyways, that still doesn't preclude me from getting a kick out of how little I paid (or how much you did), and that's not something that should get someone enraged either.

And what's this whole business of "hijacking your thread"? Did Dan start leasing out threads here?! I thought we're on a public forum here, PCMIIW.
I liked your TR and thank you again for your help, but TR's are not private blogs or diaries; they're always open to public comment.

You're welcome
Indeed! Credit where credit is due! Thank you! :)

Hey OP, looking for some advice. Looking to do a similar trip less the RV. What I mean is, I am looking to rent a house with a pool somewhere out there and use it as a home base and do day trips to all these places with a day or two break in between to recuperate. (Did something similar this summer in Yellowstone and it worked out great for my family of six.)What would be a centrally located place. Preferably with a minyan, but it's not a deal breaker.

I am thinking Vegas, but would love to hear your input.

Kanab, Utah is 1-1.5 hours away from Bryce, Zion, Page, and the Grand Canyon North Rim.  However, don't expect a minyan.  Las Vegas is way too far away.

Have an opportunity to drive an rv from Midwest to California on Wednesday with family for free.

Is 2 days enough prep?

Which route is suggested? I am totally overwhelmed with all the different possibilities.
