Renting a 26 foot RV to drive out to SD. Staying 3 nights in Custer state park in RV campground and making day trips. Planning on hitting all the major sights near Rapid City / Rushmore from there -- furthest north we'll go is Deadwood, and would like to do some driving in Black Hills for part of one day, but will not go too far (will hit Badlands loops on way back east).
My question is this: Does it make sense to rent a car in Rapid City for day trips, or should we just haul around in the RV for everything we want to do? Thinking it will be easier / faster / safer to use to get around? My husband is a great driver, but this is our first time taking the family out and about in an RV . . .
Any perspective on this would be very much appreciated!
