Anyone been on the road to Chaco lately? I did it years ago in a rented motorhome and almost shook it to pieces. I understand there's only one way in and out now and the road is still described as 'rough'.

I want to take the Casita in there but not at the risk of shaking it apart. Very slow may be the only way over those washboard roads.

I'd appreciate any first hand accounts. We're not going'till Sept.

We did some tent camping in Chaco last summer. We love it! We would also be interested in how the Casita would do. Our rental car made the trip fine but the road is rugged. Check the weather before you go. Rain makes it especially difficult I understand. We just bought a Spirit and would love to take it to Chaco. It's hot in the summer.
