Or did I get it wrong, did you mean what you posted & I made incorrect assumptions?

I am confused. Are you staying in an RV? Air BnB?

You are in an RV so where/why do you need airbnbs and hotels? OR . . . maybe you mean you have the RV parked and are leaving it in place (Yes, it is San Luis Obispo) and are taking 2 and 3 day trips by car from SLO?? Otherwise I'm not really sure what you are asking. Also do note that in many communities, especially in the LA area and on the coast short term rentals are either strictly regulated or illegal.

I don't really understand the Airbnb comment when you say you have an RV. Maybe you have some place to park it for a month in SLO and thus you want to do perhaps overnight trips elsewhere? Forget the whole Airbnb thing, it doesn't make any sense at all for someone doing a day or two elsewhere. Since you are so fond of that company, I presume you've used it and know how much time and trouble it takes versus just booking a hotel (and how much riskier it is in lots of ways).

SOme suggestions of overnights from that base:
Cambria
Santa Barbara
Ojai
Monterey (I'd add on at least another day there)
Carmel by the Sea

Anaheim only has about 250 or so legal short term rentals and most of them are not in a convenient location to walk to the park, so you will need to look into taking the ART shuttle ($5pp per day) or driving to Disneyland and parking ($15-20per day).
Look into a suite hotel like Residence Inn, Clementine Suites (formerly a Residence Inn), Springhill Suites and similar which have a cooked breakfast and either a full kitchen or kitchenette

We are on a cross country trip across highway 10, down to big bend, to San Diego for the last 2 months. We parked our RV for a month here (Obispo) and will move our RV to Palm Springs for a week and then Pt. Mugu for 2 weeks in April to pick up our grandchildren for week. We Will use hotels in between; San Francisco’s, Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Disneyland for the kids. What to see and where to stay in all of the above, please.

You really need to do some research on those places on your own to see what interests you. Then come back and ask specific questions.

San Luis Obispo? Cali?
Channel Islands so staying in Santa Barbara?
Your post is not very clear or easy to understand.
Please ask more specific questions, one location at a time, in order to receive help from posters here.
