Don't miss San Antonio! Lots of excellent Mexican food there on the riverwalk!
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
I don't think you have enough time to do all you want to do. Why not leave the unit somewhere in AZ and go home for Christmas then come back and enjoy the early part of the new year without rushing...? Just a thought.. Plenty of good storage places.

I recommend staying off the Interstate Highways. They are crowded, often torn up, and can be nerve-wracking. The older US Highway system is a lot more user-friendly for motorhomes. JMHO.
BTW- I-20 between Atlanta and Birmingham will rattle your eye teeth out. One pothole shook the steering wheel right out of my hands. I-10 at Lafayette, LA is worse.

Not overly concerned about depreciation with this rig...
What you need is multiple trips. All of the above are terrific, but my wife and I love the southwest. If you go to Phoenix, make sure to take the road down through Sedona and then back over to 17. It is beautiful.
The oldest settlement in the US is Pensacola Florida, founded in 1559 by the Spanish and wiped out by a hurricane within the year.
THE most beautiful white sand beaches , blue green water you will ever see.
Home of the Blue Angels.
National Museum of Naval Aviation is amazing to see.
Heading West along I-10 come visit us.
I would take I40 west to Memphis. Take in the Great Smokey Mountains and central Tennessee on your way to Memphis. From Memphis back track a bit and pick up the Natchez Trace Parkway and head towards New Orleans. From New Orleans I would plan Houston-San Antonio-Albuquerque. Follow that with the four corners area, Glen Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon north rim, then drop down into Phoenix. From Phoenix if you still have time head north via eastern California taking in Death Valley, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe with I5 leading you home. Your other option would be north thru Utah, Idaho and Montana. I like the Utah route for the possibility of a stop in Gran Teton and Yellowstone but you'll be push potential weather issues. I5 is a safe bet while I15 offers greater adventure.

J&R is right, I-while the leaves are turning through Arkansas and eastern OK. IF you should happen to go through Oklahoma, make sure to hit up the Cowboy Hall of Fame, I think it is the only "must see" in the area.
I also think the Mounds in Spiro, OK are facinationg, but I am guessing you will get plenty of Native American education farther west.
