If third trip to big bend have you been to bbrsp on one of your previous 2 trips. I have no MH experience but an equally important question to ask is how feasable it is to enter bbrsp with a 36 foot MH.

Never done that either, but I don't think it will be too much of a problem getting that rig to Sauceda if you take it slow enough.  There are some draws and turns that could be a problem, however, there are also a number of pretty good sized travel trailers parked at Sauceda that were hauled it.   From Sauceda you can go anywhere in the park interior with the jeep.  However, take this advice with a large grain of salt and be sure and call ahead and talk to the rangers and make appropriate arrangements.  Worst case, you can park the RV after entering the park and take the jeep from there.  Please be sure and report back.

When at BBRSP we park the MH at grassy banks and camp there...then take the jeep out exploring. Any suggestions on a route from Dallas? 67 looks to be the most direct? but wonder about the roads?
