Embark on this journey for a unique combination of Yellowstone and other spectacular National Parks and world-famous icons: Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge, Rock Springs, Old Faithful and Bear Lake State park. Enjoy all of that with the freedom only an RV can provide!
Travelling by motorhome is the perfect choice if you want to explore at your own pace, staying overnight in incredible parks, at sites where the nearest hotel is literally miles away. A motorhome is also very good value for money, particularly for families or a group of friends. Each motorhome is fully equipped and designed to provide optimum comfort and practicality.
Hiring a motorhome to see America truly is an exceptional experience. The great outdoors is just waiting to be explored. Wake up to the sound of birds and a view of a vast mountain range. Step outside and take a deep breath of mountain or sea air. Relax and eat breakfast in the sunshine. Then head out to your chosen destination for a full day of fun. There is never any rush…and it doesn’t get better than that.

What is touring in a Motorhome really like?
Freedom…Stay in one place as little or as long as you want. No set times for breakfast or dinner. No unpacking and repacking every day.
Flexibility…Chose either to follow one of our suggested itineraries or design your own. Not so keen on a place when you get there? No problem…all aboard and on to the next location.
Access…When visiting places such as the Grand Canyon or Zion National Park, you are able to overnight within the grounds of the parks and usually at a minimal cost. Aside from the National or State Parks, practically all of the tourist sites and sights that have drawn you here have welcoming Motorhome Parks right there.
Nature…Wake up to the sound of birds and a view of a vast mountain range. Step outside and take a deep breath of mountain or sea air. Relax with the family and eat breakfast in the sunshine. Then head out to your chosen destination for a full day of family fun. There is never any rush…and it doesn’t get better than that.
Cruise America offer four different types of motorhome:
T17 Truck Camper: Sleeps 3 people, length 6.15 metres
C19 Compact Motorhome: Sleeps family up to 3 people, length 6.15 metres
C25 Standard Motorhome: Sleeps family up to 5, length 7.3-7.6 metres
C30 Large Motorhome: Sleeps family up to 7 people, lenght 8.8-9.1 metres
All Cruise America’s motorhomes have a refrigerator and freezer. They all have a hob and a microwave and cupboards for food storage in the kitchen area. All have a shower, basin and flush toilet. Waste water from the bathroom and kitchen goes into two on-board holding tanks when you are not hooked up to mains drainage at a campground.
Cruise America also provides a Personal Kit with personal bedding and towels and a Kitchen Kit of pots and pans and crockery.
All Cruise America vehicles come with power steering, power brakes and automatic transmission. If you drive a manual vehicle at home, it will take you seconds to get the hang of forgetting your left foot and just using the on/off pedals – the power and the brake.
From our own experience, the vehicle length has never been a problem – it just seems to follow
you! Just be sure to make your turns wide. The vehicle width takes a little while to get used to,
but by day two you will be driving your motorhome like a professional! You don’t need a special license – all you need is to be 25 years of age or older and possess a valid driver’s license and a major credit card.
Campground rates vary based on time of year and what facilities they offer. Generally you can expect to pay between $10 and $50 per night.
A partial list of commonly found facilities would include: electric, water, sewer hook-ups, washer, dryer, swimming pool, playground, BBQ pits, on-site convenience store.
If wanting to stay near big attractions – Disney, Universal Studios, Niagara Falls – or close to popular cities or in the National Parks, we would always recommend advance booking for campgrounds. Otherwise, if travelling in July and August booking ahead is a very good idea also.
