You can rent a 19' RV (pictures in the following link) for 2 weeks and 1,400 miles for under $1,300 (+taxes and surcharges?).

You wouldn't spend the extra 2 days driving to get there (and another 2 days back) plus zero wear-and-tear on your truck. If you figure 25-cents per mile wear-and-tear on your truck, at 5-6,000 miles (my guess on your round trip), you would be close to breaking even on renting an RV. The airfare seems to be running under $400 round-trip from DC to DEN. 4 extra days of driving vs. $400...
I'm done with flying. The hassle I went through just to get a 13 year old girl on and off a plane last September, and what I have heard about TSA recently leaves me cold.

The trip would be a "look at things" trip with no real itinerary. I now live alone in a 4500 sq ft house, and, if all goes well, I will be homeless by the middle of the summer. I plan on doing a bit of traveling before deciding what I want to do when I grow up. I am now 73.
