Planning on 4 days 4/8-4/11 but we will have mostly newer riders and dual sports so it wont be very challenging for better riders.

Jeep Safari is 3/27 - 4/4. That's the only window you really don't want to be in Moab - although Green River is usually OK.

Regardless, at this time of the year, with the type of winter we (Utah and Colorado) have had, it's going to be busy. Weekdays are radically better than weekends, but it's a big place and there's room for nearly everyone (esp. if you stay away from Slickrock).

Avoid the Safari (in Moab) and just go. The next time it's not going to be busy is after Memorial Day when temp's are usually in the 90's.

When is spring break in Moab?

X2 ???

I've been riding there since the 80's and never run into "spring break". It get busy the weeks before and after Easter for jeep week. Again during the car show weekend, and the occasional bike/marathon race. Avoid jeep week and you should have no problems if you are bringing an RV. I usually go at least once or twice a month from April thru Oct. If you have a week in mind, drop me a pm and I will be happy to show you around a bit.

I just went to moab for my spring break from the 13th-20th and it wasn't bad at all. Most colleges should have either had SB or are in the middle of it now. Slickrock was busy, but that should be expected. A couple other people said avoid safari. That is pretty much all that matters. You shouldn't be in town much anyways.. you should be on the trails!

Don't forget 15 cent wings at the moab brewery bar from 4-6 mon-wed. Thursday is $5 burger night too.
