June 2018

We are planning 2 weeks drive Boston to Yellowstone and back- and have booked lodging in the park. We have recently discovered that we love traveling in an RV and are thinking of changing our plans and taking a 28 foot Class c instead of a car and booking campgrounds vs the rooms I’ve already booked.

Driving throughout park in an RV- is it possible? I’ve heard mixed opinions....

Possible, yes. But a car for touring is much easier. Easier for watching wildlife, easier for roads designed for smaller vehicles. Not all roads allow RV's. If you have lodging booked, stick with that. Save the RV for a more RV friendly place. Yellowstone isn't.

Keep the plans with using a car to see the park. Motorhome not really a great choice. Basically to big and for a lot od places hard to find a place to park. Have a good trip!!

Is your trip 2 weeks total or 2 weeks each way then time in Yellowstone? It's around 2400 miles from Boston to Yellowstone 1 way.

Our plan is 2 weeks total. Ambitious I know... but we’ve done Florida and back a few times now... and we’re hoping to hit Akron Ohio , Mount Rushmore and Cave Winds on our way spending a night or 2. Have booked 5 nights lodging in park.

Do keep in mind you don't want to drive in the dark in the west, due to the large animals on the road, including free-range cattle! You want to be at your lodging before dark, in case you were planning on long or overnight drives.

Please keep in mind driving a 28 foot Class C motorhome is a lot more stressful and slower then a car on long trips. Way slower through the mountains.
