Default Alaska Advice?

My wife and I want to do the Alaska trip. Has anyone ever heard of
ALASKAN DISCOVERY RV TOURS and if so what their reputation is?

Thanks everyone!

Nope - never have. I would save the driving time and fuel money for the Alaska State Ferry.

I don't know anything about that outfit. I do know a guy that took his rv to Alaska. He is on the HDT Escapees forum under user name "Rick & Alana." If you pm him I bet he might have some info for you. Here's his member info: Rick & Alana - Viewing Profile - Escapees Discussion Forum

For as much detail as you would ever want to know about travel to Alaska, go to the Escapees forum under "travel" then look for the Alaska threads some of which are quite long so make popcorn and read away...

Travel - Escapees Discussion Forum

the forum is for all types of RVing but it really leans 5th Wheel and long term rv'ing enjoy and safe travels, I wish it was us going to AK..

Been up and down the Alaska Highway about 18 times since the mid 70's. Last trip was for 3 months in 2010. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Taking the rv to Alaska sounds a lot better than flying and cruising. Cruise boats down again but at least they give you a voucher to cruise somewhere else lol(but no refund on your airfare)
