Thanks for the advice guys. We have big drives with nothing to see at the start and end (Birmingham AL - Carlsbad at start, Bad Lands - Birmingham at end). Thought about the Alamo but I'm the only one that cares about stuff like that.

Its going to be peak season so thought we would need to reserve spots in all our stops forcing us to hit our distances each day. General itinerary:

Carlsbad Caverns
4 Corners
Grand Canyon
Hoover/Lake Meade with overnight in Vegas
Death Valley
Golden Gate/Alcatraz
Salt Lake (I think)
Jackson just outside Grand Tetons
Yellowstone (2 days)
Devils Tower/Mt Rushmore

Want to camp in Yellowstone for sure. Thoughts on apps that show all the campgrounds instead of just the KOA/Happy Sam? Getting the national park pass.

Need to re-evaluate how we planned on splitting the drive each day based on your feedback. May need to cut out SanFran/Tahoe and turn up to Salt Lake from Vegas instead. Wife doesn't want to stay long anywhere but Yellowstone.
