US West Coast - Car or Camper

Jump to last reply

Hi,
We are a family of 4 (2 boys, aged 10 & 8) coming to the US mid-March 2014, for 4wks. We fly in and out of LA, and have a rough itinerary planned (LA (explore Hollywood, do Disneyland), Legoland, San Diego, Joshua Tree NP, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Yosemite NP, San Francisco, back down to LA). As you can see, nature is big for us, but also things like USS Midway in San Diego, pop over to Tjuana, Cable Car museum in San Fran, La Brea Tar Pits in LA,..).
Our question is (one of many, really!): should we hire a car or a campervan? People have said the advantage of a camper is we can stop and eat whenever we want to, we don't need to pack and unpack each day. Advantages of car - hotels usually have 2 double beds and should be cheap-ish at that time of the year, easier to find parking.
Would really appreciate thoughts and comments, as well as any other trip suggestions.
Thanks, E&T
