I have been trying to find info here on whether the above is doable.
Situation: We are a family of 4 who will be renting an RV at Cruise America in July. I especially look forward to seeing Death Valley, but my wife is rather reluctant, because Cruise America says on their website that:
"Vehicles may be operated with EXTREME CARE in Death Valley and other desert areas during the months of July and August. In Summer, renters visit these areas at their own risk and Cruise America will not be held responsible for extraordinary vehicle recovery and other charges. During certain periods these areas are not habitable and could pose a danger to the driver and passengers."
So I want to ask if it's insane to drive through Death Valley in order to see Badwater/Furnace Creek. I think the plan will be to get through DV as fast as possible, because of the above warning. We will rent the 25 ft RV. I would like to get to the warmest point in DV at the warmest period of the day, i.e., between 2-4 pm. We will be arriving from Las Vegas.
Thanks in advance
