I don't even know where to start....
We have done this both in a pass with kids and in our small vintage coach. There are so many places to see that I would have to sort them by type.

What sort of things interest you most? We can start there.
I was going to start a list of places I would like to get back to and see again.

Other question, do you need an FHU camp or can you dry camp?

One motorcycle on the trailer? (You did not use plural.) So, I am guessing it is a road cruiser. That is OK too, but we used to tow trail bikes so pavement was just an inconvenience.

x2 for this

For what it's worth, stay away from Michigan until late-August or early September... with public campgrounds closed until late June, private campgrounds are beyond busy and will likely have record business this summer.

Two of our grandkids traveled with us for their summer vacations for 10 years. We flew them to us and flew them home at the end of the summer. Great for us, great for them. They've seen 42 States. We let them choose what they'd like to see/do when they arrive. One year they wanted to swim in all the Great Lakes so we did the circle tour. Recommend this. If interested, pictures are on our blog, link below. Agree on late summer, but remember the skeeters will be out and hungry......Dennis

Any trip up the West Coast of Michigan will be well worth it. Michigan does New England better than "New England". Towns like Saugatuck, Petosky is amazing, Grand Haven, Muskegon, Ludington, etc. along Rt. 31 are not to be missed. Take time to cut over to Traverse City. Beautiful! From TC you would visit the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore. From there, a day trip up I believe Rt. 22 all the way to Northport. The towns along the lakeshore are again better than New England, and the folks are mid-Western friendly. Enjoy your trip.
