I would love to hear y'all's opinions about the most appropriate type of rental car we should use for our trip our West. We are taking a 2-week trip, making a "circle" from Las Vegas, and our route is the following: leave Vegas, drive down to route 66 and Peach Springs... Flagstaff....Page...back to Grand Canyon south rim....Monument valley...Moab.....Torrey, UT....scenic rt 12 to Bryce Canyon...Springdale and Zion...back to Vegas. This route is now fixed due to the reservations we have made. We want to take advantage of scenic opportunities enjoyed via drive up overlooks, and we are aware the road conditions on this route will vary, and even be a challenge in places. Would you please share your recommendations on vehicle type? We were thinking of minivan, (we are a family of 4: hubby, me and 2 older teen daughters), but is an SUV needed instead?? Also, would you share where you think we will have the bigger challenges, and offer suggestions. We are on a budget, and are trying to be frugal with the rental expense. Thanks!
