Alaska RVing

June of 2013 is our 40th Anniversary. Have always wanted to see Alaska. Don't particulary want to take a cruise so was wondering about flying there then renting an RV and driving back to the States and along the West Coast. Any suggestions? Should we rent in the States and drive to Alaska then fly back instead? What kind of costs are we looking at? Thinking of a 30 day trip.  Husband wants to stop and fish!

Hi we hired a cruise america van from chicago and drove to Niagara Falls, New York back across the midwest to South Dakota, Mt Rushmore, down thru rocky mountains colarado bryce, zion and grand canyons, las vegas, LA then down to san diego back up to LA. We then drove from LA via sequoia NP, Yosemite, across to San Fran then up the entire west coast, alaskan highway thru Bristish Columbia, Yukon into fairbanks in April May 2011. We then went thru Denali NP down to Anchorage, to Whittier, Seward did a day cruise to surprise glazier very good would recommend. We dropped the RV into anchorage depot and flew back to Vegas.  Because we are from Australia we missed going to see the bears at stewart because it was an extra cold winter the bears were still in hybernation. I would recommend the drive it is an easy drive (even for us on the wrong side) up the westcoast but if you are going to enjoy everything we did on the west side definitely need 30 days.  We did 11,000 miles in 5 weeks with 3 children in a 24ft which was very comfortable, only issue used a lot of gas approx $6000US for the whole trip, benefit we slept in carparks and roadside to save but had to pay to park in larger places like SF.  We would do it all again every day of the week.
