I've done most of these in a tent (both as a kid and as an adult), and I remember being quite COLD at night for most of them.

There are two things working in your favor, most of those locations are at higher altitude (which automatically makes it cooler at night), and the dry desert climate cools down rapidly at night - and often by 40-50 degrees from the daytime high. So you can have 100 degree days and 60 degree nights (or on milder days, 80 degree highs and near freezing or below at night), and unlike somewhere at lower altitude where it's humid, temps really drop rapidly after the sun goes down.

David, had to laugh about you doing all the rehab and not getting to sleep in it. Guess it's just what Dads do, my Dad fixed things for me and I fixed things for my kids. It's just what we do . They will remember it with fond memories.

Thanks for sharing. Utah and Arizona are incredible places to visit. I've made 2 trips there in the last 2 years and still have to go back to see the things I missed. Zion was my favorite. The best of the best !

Thanks for sharing pictures from your trip. Those are all incredible places, many of which we've seen. Your trip report made me want to get back to them!

What an epic trip. And you really did hit some great sleeping temps, lucky lucky.

I second the comment about the 12! The beauty and diversity on that road, as well as scanty traffic, made me think I want to spend a week getting to see it slow.
I made a similar trip last September from San Diego to Mt. Pleasant MI. Camping in the back of my car during the heat wave early in September was one thing that made me decide to get a trailer. Even at elevation, the night temps were in the 80s. I am thinking of making the trip again next spring, but with my trailer and take more than 14 days on the road. I really wanted to spend more than a night at the NP in Utah and NM, but had a deadline to be back in SD in a month. As it was, I spent more time on the road than visiting family in MI! Maybe next time I can take a couple months. The west is impressive in scale, but nothing is more beautiful than the backwoods and clear waters of Michigan!

Yes! Highway 12 is beautiful. Something everyone who visits Utah should see. Highway 12 is also called the "Hogsback or Hogback" and if you google it and look at some of the bing photos you will see why. I could not take any photos because I was concentrating on my driving. The wife couldn't take photos because she had her eyes shut. Hogsback is as close to heaven as you can get when you are driving a car or truck!

The Moki Dugway highway is another very interesting drive.

I've had my trailer 2 years and managed to spend 9 weeks in Utah and Arizona and I've seen a lot but there is so much more.

Wow! Nice install!! Where is the Hitch??? Do you have the full tow package on your Oddy (tranny cooler etc) and was it all factory?

Thank you so much! This is the most clearance I've seen on a minivan. How many inches is it to the ground? Norm measured his new Oddy and he has 5" but yours looks like more. Where is the power connector? That's what I had the most trouble with on my Sienna b/c it was even lower than the hitch. Bent the snot out of it more than once on a steep incline. Had to have it repaired. Not fun thousands of miles from home
