Our holiday trip was organized und scheduled to visit part of british columbia. Because of cirrcumtances there were no motorhomes available in BC during the time we want to go. Our travel agency has made the proposal to rent a motohome in the USA. The renting company was El Monte, located in Farndale, south of the border Canada - United States of America. We have agreed to take this option. Everything was organized properly between Canasa our travel agency and El Monte. As scheduled El Monte (a nice and very well organized Lady) has pick up us at a hotel close to the Vancouver airport. The Lady moved us from there to the El Monte Service Point. To pass the border it has taken a bit , until all the necessary things had been done. At the El Monte service point everything was prepared to take over the motorhome as it was ordered. When ever i needed support i got it. Always, the staff of El Monte was friendly, reliable. The motorhome itself was almost new and in a very good shape. Little issues: in some corners a bit of dust was still there. When ever i needed support i got it. Always, the staff of El Monte was friendly, reliable. When our trip was finished, to bring us from the El Monte service point back to the Vancouver International airport. Also that was organized properly. The motorhome itself was almost new and in a very good shape. Little issues: in some corners a bit of dust was still there. The sleeping mattress was a bit worn out, nothing for a bad back. A large floor mat should be part of the basic equipment. That would help that you don't carry the dirt straight into the motorhome. We met some others who rented motorhomes from the compatitors and they were more than disapointed for variuos reasons. From our point of view, it was a very good decision to take a motorhome from the El Monte company. Many thanks Bruno & Elke

Plus: Staff were really friendly, they were helpful and told us a lot of useful things about the RV, because this was out first rental. Neg: The rental place is not very convincing, its quite dirty, we even saw roaches and a rat. The 26ft Sunseeker we rented was in OK condition. There were some minor damage to the inside but it was mainly aesthetic damage.

Route 66 America's Main Street RV Vacation Itinerary

Route 66 - America's Main Street RV Vacation Itinerary

 

Route 66 is a legend. Since 1926, it has provided the way for travelers to follow their dreams. No other highway has been immortalized in song, prose, and film. This journey involves driving on Freeways and stopping at places where the old road still exists.

Destinations

Day 1 Chicago to Springfield, IL 199 miles - 4 hours

Chicago to Springfield, IL

Day 1
Chicago to Springfield, IL
199 miles - 4 hours

180 miles on Interstate and you will ery soon get used to driving your motorhome. Headed for Springfield, Illinois' State Capital, you'll get your first sight of Route 66 there (www.visit-springfieldillinois.com). Pay your respects at Lincoln's Tomb and visit the New Salem State Historic Site where costumed guides re-create the 1830s town where the future president lived and worked. We suggest you stay southeast of the city, at the Springfield KOA (www.koa.com). Don't leave without getting your kicks on Route 66! You'll find a museum, shops, motorcycle races, antique car rallies and a drive-in diner.

Day 2 Springfield, IL to St. Louis 124 miles - 2 to 3 hrs

Day 2
Springfield, IL to St. Louis
124 miles - 2 to 3 hrs

Cross the Mississippi River east of St. Louis. The state line is in the middle of the river so you are leaving Illinois and crossing into Missouri. Head for West St. Louis and the town of Eureka for tonight's suggested campground, the St. Louis West KOA, located right on Historic Route 66. Also in Eureka is Six Flags St. Louis with its thrilling roller coasters, high-speed thrills, family rides and even gentle rides for the little ones.

Day 3 St. Louis to Springfield, MO 148 miles - 3 hours

Day 3
St. Louis to Springfield, MO
148 miles - 3 hours

Stop off at Lone Elk Park, a 546-acre wildlife management area serving as a preserve for bison, wild turkey, waterfowl, elk, and deer.  Ten miles further on, stop at the Route 66 State Park.  Opened in 1999, the park is a well known stopping point for all Route 66 travelers.  Then move on to your overnight destination.  We suggest the Springfield/Route 66 KOA.

Day 4 Springfield, MO to Oklahoma City 246 miles - 4 to 5 hrs.

Day 4
Springfield, MO to Oklahoma City
246 miles - 4 to 5 hrs.

Before you cross the Missouri/Oklahoma state line, visit the town of Joplin.  Those famous pictures of Bonnie and Clyde, she with pistol and cigar, were left behind here when the duo had to leave town in a hurry.  Continue heading southwest and divert to Tulsa, the one time "Oil Capital of the World" where Gene Pitney was 'Only 24 Hours' from.  Here too is the world's largest, most comprehensive collection of art and artifacts of the American West.  Due south of Tulsa, come off the freeway on Route 75 and join up with Interstate 40, heading for Oklahoma City, and at Okemah, find our suggested campground, the Oklahoma East KOA. 

Day 5 Oklahoma City to Amarillo 326 miles - 4 to 5 hrs.

Day 5
Oklahoma City to Amarillo
326 miles - 4 to 5 hrs.

A long drive, but worth it as you head west through Oklahoma and into Texas "On the Way to Amarillo"!  One overnight suggestion would be Amarillo's KOA, just off historic Route 66.   Wander the famous highway to see local attractions such as the Cadillac Ranch; the American Quarter Horse Heritage Center & Museum, and the Route 66 historic district featuring antiques, boutiques and dining.  Drive to the bottom of Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the USA and one of the nation's most magnificent scenic attractions.  Travel the trails used by the Apache, Comanche, buffalo hunters, and early Spanish explorers.  You may prefer to overnight at Palo Duro

Day 6 Amarillo to Tucumcari 162 miles - 3 hours

Day 6
Amarillo to Tucumcari
162 miles - 3 hours

After 130 miles, you'll enter New Mexico... and America's Southwest.  Just a few miles further on, arrive at Tucumcari and the Cactus RV Park, which we suggest is a good stop on your way to Albuquerque.

Day 7 Tucumcari to Albuquerque 185 miles - 3 hrs 20 min

Day 7
Tucumcari to Albuquerque
185 miles - 3 hrs 20 min

Drive south of the Santa Fe National Forest on the way to Albuquerque where we suggest you stay at the Enchanted Trails RV Park and Trading Post.  On historic Route 66, Enchanted Trails is flanked by three extinct volcanoes.  The campground sits on a high desert mesa overlooking the city of Albuquerque.  Originally a trading post built in the late 1940's, the flat roofed adobe building is typical of the region.  The property has been used as a backdrop for several films.  Recently, their vintage cars and travel trailers were featured in a Route 66 video.

Day 8 Albuquerque to Flagstaff 311 miles - 4 to 5 hrs plus stop

Day 8
Albuquerque to Flagstaff
311 miles - 4 to 5 hrs plus stop

Headed for Arizona, you will pass through the town of Gallup, an interesting town which some say is the "Indian Capital of the World" because of it's location in the center of Native American lands.  Just west of Gallup, you will cross into Arizona and overnight in Flagstaff, gateway to the Grand Canyon.  We suggest you overnight in the KOA at Flagstaff.

Day 9 Flagstaff to Grand Canyon 73 miles - 1 hr 30 min

Grand Canyon RV Vacation

Day 9
Flagstaff to Grand Canyon
73 miles - 1 hr 30 min

You cannot come all this way and NOT visit the Grand Canyon!  You've had some long drives and this is the chance to have an easy day.  Try and pre-arrange a flightseeing trip for this afternoon and don't forget to be in bed early so you can be up for sunrise.  We suggest the Mather Campground.  It has no electric or water hookups, but it does have fine shower and toilet facilities.

Day 10 Grand Canyon to Kingman 191 miles - 3 hours

Day 10
Grand Canyon to Kingman
191 miles - 3 hours

Up for the sunrise and make for Seligman, a Route 66 town all the way.  Here you can come off of the Interstate and actually drive for several miles on the original Route 66.  Seligman is a delightful town and retains all the flavor of the old road.  A trip down Route 66 is a trip back in time to the days when Route 66 was really Main Street USA.  At the 'end' of Route 66, you will arrive in Kingman and we suggest an overnight stop at the Kingman KOA.

Day 11 Kingman to Barstow 211 miles - 4 hours

Day 11
Kingman to Barstow
211 miles - 4 hours

Come off I-40 and take a look at the Mojave National Preserve.  Natural features include the Kelso Dunes, the Marl Mountains and the Cima Dome, as well as volcanic formations such as Hole-in-the-Wall and the Cinder Cone Lava Beds.  The preserve encloses Providence Mountains State Recreation Area and Mitchell Caverns Natural Preserve, which are both managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation.  Impressive Joshua Tree forests cover parts of the preserve.  We suggest you overnight at the KOA at Barstow, quite an interesting town, being home to many museums:  Mojave River Valley Museum, Route 66 Mother Road Museum, the Western America Rail Museum and the Desert Discovery Center.

Day 12 Returning Your Motorhome 135 miles - 2 hrs 30 min

Day 12
Returning Your Motorhome
135 miles - 2 hrs 30 min

A few miles to cover this morning.  Please make sure your motorhome has a full tank of petrol before returning it by 11:00am at our Santa Fe Springs rv rental location.
