|We are planning an RV trip to Alaska next summer. We don't intend to take our 10 year old class A, but rent instead when we get there.|
We don't know whether to go with a caravan, which is somewhat expensive, or just go out on our own for 4 or 5 weeks. Any suggestions???

|I am planning to go up their also summer of 2004...Why not DRIVE?...I was think of driveing up there in my 1982 Crown Super Coach...Where are you now?|
|From the perspective of an Alaskan with an RV park, I would say you are better off without a caravan. Even small groups seem to diverge in interests which limits your enjoyment. |
If you are you on your own, you can go where you want when you want...Alaska is a big place with lots to do...the fewer the limitations on you the better. Alaska is also a very "close" place in that you will continually run into the same faces, so it is easy to link up with like-minded folks for awhile.
If you choose to rent over the middle of the summer, don't wait too long...rentals are limited.
|My Wife and I went to Alaska two years ago with out being in a Caravan. We had no troubles anywhere along the trip except trying to get past caravans that would bunch up on the highways and would not pull over or allow others to pass. Don't forget you are driving in Northern Canada and Alaska with a low population base, It is a wilderness area but safe to travel alone. |
Only advice I would give it to make reservations in Muncho Lake, Whitehorse and Dawson City. We were lucky that it was the year of all the Alaskan / Yukon forest fires and most campsites were empty. We took 4 weeks and never saw everything we wanted, so take as much time as possible in July Aug months
