Travel from Calgary to LA

Hi

My partner and I are finishing off our overseas living with a road trip in a wicked campervan in August. We live in Vancouver and are finishing up in LA. We plan on leaving the 12th August starting with travel planned to Calgary but from there haven't made any big decisions on where best to go. We are visiting some people in Montana but wondering if anyone can recommend places to see along the way? We will plan to leave calgary on the 18th/19th August and fly out of LA on the 8th September. Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Welcome to TripAdvisor, Lisa;

What do you plan to do with the "wicked campervan" at the end of your trip ?

Yes, curious about the dropoff of that campervan also.

The route to Los Angeles can lead through Glacier NP, Yellowstone NP, Grand Teton NP and even to places like Moab (Arches, Canyonlands), Monument Valley, Page, Bryce Canyon NP, Zion NP and Las Vegas. or via Grand Canyon NP either north rim or south rim.

Wicked campers have a drop off point in LA although it does require a one way fee like most hire car companies so we will pick up in Vancouver and drop off in LA. From Vegas does anyone know what the drive is like through to San Fran? We would love to check it out but worried about the drive and where to stop off

From Vegas you can drive through the desert and Central Valley in app 10 hours to San Francisco but you'll need 2 days if you want to drive aong hw1 from SF to LA (3 would be better). A more scenic drive is from Las Vegas via Death Valley and Yosemite to San Francisco but that requires 3 days and you must check if you are allowed to drive through DVNP in summer with your CV. And finding a place to camp in Yosemite will be hard. You definitely need a reservation then.
