Per ususal Mapquest et al gives a variety of routes from Las Vegas, NV to Cathedral City, CA and there seems to be only one overnight stop, Barstow. We seldom like to drive over 2 -2 1/2 hrs in a stretch in an 36 Class A with Porsche toad and dogs. We have learned you are the BEST source of info..what route should we take? I 15 and 10? Any other places to stop for the night other than Barstow? We would prefer to stay pretty close to the hwy so we make our RV reservation in Cathedral City . Many thanks

My personal preference would be 95 South to I10 staying on the California side. Reasonably good two lane road with minimal traffic. Best overnight would be around Needles. You can check out the park reviews for Needles at RV Park Reviews

Iwould take I-15 south to 247 in Barstow to 62 west in Yucca Valley to I-10 east. I took this route a few times one a couple of weeks ago going to Desert Hot Springs. It's a good road all the way. 247 & 62 are 2 lane, not much traffic at all. From our house in Las Vegas to Desert Hot Springs it was 297 miles.
Have a safe trip.

Balfre, another choice would be to stop at the KOA in Yermo, CA, next to the Ghost town off the I-15. It's about 144 miles from Las Vegas. Then, you will have another 126 miles to Cathedral City.

From Yermo you would continue west/south on the I-15 to the 215 to the 210 to the 10.

There is a KOA just east of Victorville also, or once you go over the pass on the 15 and start down the hill Glen Helen county park is a couple exits down.

As far as the alternate routes depends on what you want to do. I like exploring different ways to go the same place. If you want to go the quickest, 15 to 10 is probably it.
Enjoy the trip one way or the other!

If you feel adventurous get off I-15 at the Nipton exit and go thru the Mojave Reserve. The route is pretty well signed now; two right turns head you to Cima (old Boxcar post office), on to Kelso (historic train depot/hotel) where a left turn heads you to the I-40 crossing and down to US-66. Another right turn runs you through Amboy (a ghost town trying to come back). After that the first left turn puts you on the road to 29 Palms (RV park there). Then, go west on CA-62 till it hooks up with I-10.

The road is not perfect (some is rough, some is whoop-ti-dos, some parts are out of cell coverage) but it will definitely keep you alert, and there is not much traffic. I've driven it several times in a Southwind, and have met quite a few RVs (DPs and 5th wheels) while doing it.

On the map I 15 to Barstow then CA 247/62 certainly looks the shortest distance (saves gas) and avoids all that San Bernadino traffic, any reason not to take this route??
