Aussie family landing in Atlanta Oct 2010

We are 3 adults (father, mother and daughter) doing a 3 week trip East to West on an organised coach tour. Part of the tour is flying back from LA to the UK via Atlanta, where we intend to jump off and do our own thing for approx. 3 weeks early October 2010. We thought a RV campervan might be the best idea and would welcome all advice regarding reputable companies, overnight sites and stuff like that. We thought flying back to Perth Australia from Houston might be our best option. If anyone has done something similar any hints and tips would be most welcome. Thanks

You are taking a bus tour from the East Coast to the West Coast for three weeks, then flying back East to Atlanta where you might rent an RV for another 3 weeks to camp/tour your way to Houston where you'd fly back to Australia. is that correct? What does the tour include as far as places/sights?

Sounds like a somewhat redundant itinerary. If I'm getting you right, you're flying to the east coast from Australia, then taking a tour across to LA, then plan to backtrack with a flight back to Atlanta, then will tour westward again in an RV to Houston (why Houston) where you'll fly back home. Depending on the route of the coach tour this might make a little sense, but overall this doesn't seem like the sleekest itinerary to me. Why not just do a cross-country trip on your own? That way you'll enjoy more freedom as to where to go and what to do, and you can save money on flights.

RVs make sense in some places and not as much in others. They're not much use in cities and even some natural areas, but in some spots (mostly out west and in Alaska) they're one of the more convenient ways to get around.
