best rt to Yellowstone w/RV-from Rawlins or Casper?

We are coming from Nebraska to Yellowstone...which route is "easiest" if we are pulling a camper? From Rawlins (US 287) or Casper (US 20/26).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated...we are headed out in mid July.

Thanks!

Both routes are pretty flat to the Riverton/Lander area, where the 2 routes meet.

Thanks. What's your opinion on the east entrance vs south entrance to Yellowstone w/ a trailer?

Not exactly. It describes it fairly well..."The east is the mountainous one..." Does that mean really tough on pickups and trailers? I have driven over Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado and around the Durango, CO area...is it comparable with that? Is it too much, that I should enter yellowstone from the south?

The road from Cody to the east entrance goes through a pass, but it's hardly hazardous mountain driving. The incline is pretty gradual, and there are no scary drop-offs, especially coming from the east. It's a lot easier driving than the roads north of Durango, like the Million Dollar Highway.
