We will be leaving from DC on April 10 and have ours trails and days all picked out. We will be towing a 40 foot RV toy hauler and plan on sleeping off the trail heads except for White Rim which is what brings me here. I see that there is nowhere I can park this thing reasonably close to the Island in the Sky visitor center. Canyonlands seem to have some rules of RV size and where you can actually park to camp (it would have been perfect at the island in the sky campground but it limits to 29 foot rv's). We ride 300 two strokers and really don't want to spend much time riding the bikes on the paved roads.
Where would you recommend me park the RV for the night so we can start white rim early in the morning?
BTW if anyone is interested we might still have two spots left in the trailer leaving from DC on April 10th and returning the 21st.

I've been riding at Hollister for 20 years but I haven't camped there in 15 years. In the past I've camped in tents but my wife and I just got our first Toy Hauler....we're planning a trip out this month to break it in. I plan to be there early Friday through early Sunday.
Any recommendations on campsites to aim for? Hoping to minimize quads trying to wheelie, doing donuts, etc. as much as possible. The wife is pregnant so I want her to have as relaxing an experience as possible. Walnut always seemed nice but I hear it's actually pretty loud? Maybe Radio Ridge?
I've been going to the races with my F150 and a 14' cargo/race trailer. I feel like it would be nice to stay on-site at the races instead of the hotel/motel deal. I can't pull much more trailer with my 150, so I'm thinking about purchasing an RV to pull my trailer. Is anyone else using a similar set-up?
Selling my 2015 CarryOn 6 ft x 12 ft Enclosed Trailer Conversion. I tow this awesome trailer with a V6 jeep cherokee with no problems. One owner on this trailer, purchased new and I've done all the work/additions with exception of the slider window. I use this rig to go camping with 1 or 2 motorcycles and a quad or two could fit inside. The dry weight is 1000 lbs. The total weight is somewhere around 1200 lbs minus toys. If you have a v6 SUV or med truck, this trailer is the perfect combination: light weight, easy to tow, doesn't take up much space, comfortable and way cheaper/lighter than the smallest toy hauler. I'm 5' 10" and there is easily another 4-5 inches of headroom since the ceiling is 6' 6". The pictures, map wall, posters etc can be taken down. Here is a complete list of what it comes with:
-Rear ramp door with cam locks
-Side RV door with cam lock & interior lock
-Window with screen and slider
-2" rigid insulation in walls, 2.5" rigid insulation in ceiling
-wood ceiling (most enclosed trailers come with open ceiling)
-Drawers, cabinets, tons of useful storage
-Countertop for preparing meals
-RV-style pump faucet and sink with drain
-Carpet & vinyl flooring
-4 D-ring tie-downs
-Shower kit with USB rechargeable battery
-LED lights & Dome lights
-Bed for one (quite comfortable, and can be folded up to fit toys or used outside as table)
-Caster wheel & sand pad
-Painted inside, grip coating on ramp door
Title in hand.
