Where would you go - in Oct / Nov

We have a 2017 Melbourne 24L; we're not planning to tow at the moment. Any recommendations on where to go for about 4-5 weeks in Oct / Nov. for a trial trip with the rig. Where are some of your favorite places that time of year? We're in the Central U.S. and don't really want to go north. Thank you for any ideas.

We love the Ozarks in the fall - but don't go as it is already too crowded that time of year.

There are some great national parks in Utah & Arizona, if you are in to that kind of stuff.
Utah - Zion, Bryce, Arches, Capital Reef, Canyonlands, Grand Staircase-Escalante
Arizona - Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Saguaro National Park, Petrified Forest
Just to name a few.

Big Bend is nice that time of year. You can still wear shorts and sleep outside at night.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. Everyone on this forum is so helpful in sharing your knowledge and experiences.

jkaras7: I notice you have the same model rig; do you tow a car?

We do not tow any vehicle. We can drive the Melbourne 24L to most places we want to go to without any problems.

It's Kartchner Caverns I believe. As I recall you need reservations for the cave tours there. Lost Dutchman is another nice Arizona State park.

Tucson has some fun attractions including PIMA Air & Space Museum, Titan Missile Museum, Biosphere 2 and Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Kitt Peak National Observatory is about 60 miles southwest as well.
