Anyone out there have a suggestion once I get back to interstate 80 in Wyoming on how to go over to Moab to see the Arches. I am pulling a 30ft travel trailer and would like to avoid any passes.

OH brother, their are some nasty passes ya really want to avoid.
We just rolled through there this past spring.

All I can recommend is stay on Highway I 15 as much as you possibly can and you'll be slap-happy.

Nice to pass through Jackson and drop down from there, but the passes are very steep and murder on your rig and nerves.
If we did it again towing or in a MoHo I'd skip the Tetons routes entirely and stay on the I 15.

We did the Rally on the Rocks in Moab and it was off-the-hook fun.

The plan right now is to take 80 from Wyoming over to I 15 then cut across on US 6 E to I 70 and then down 191 to Moab. The passes you are referring to were they on US 6 E? If I stay on I 15 all the way to I 70 seems like I am going way out of the way, but I do want to avoid any passes.

Yep,,, that's the correct route.
We did it 3 years ago and you'll be better off compared to other routes.
It is probably the most breathtaking and beautiful drive in the world.
The I 70 is about as good a knock-out scenery as it gets.

This past trip we took a few weeks ago we dropped down from Yellowstone South on the 89 thru the Grand Tetons,, and it was a tough go from South of Jackson to Brigham City. Just murder for a big RV rig.
