Convertible, Jeep or SUV?

My husband and I are planning a trip in early July. We are flying into Vegas, then driving to Springdale (Zion), Ut, where we will be based for 5 nights. We plan to take one day trip to Bryce and, on another day , we plan to see the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

Would we be better off renting an SUV, a jeep, or a convertible?

This is such a personal preference. It can be soooo hot in southern Utah in July that I would only get an SUV of the choices you list. That way, I would be out of the sun when I need to be and in comfort and air conditioning for the driving parts of the trip. Just my opinion though. I am not a sun worshipper at all.

Compact, Full Size, Luxury? I would rent a SUV although you won't need it on your trips to GCNR and Bryce, unless you decide to drive beautiful Cottonwood400 from Kadochrome Basin SP to us 89. On the other hand, who don't want to drive the West in a convertible and pretend you're Thelma and Louis(e).........with a happy end of course.

Tet-that was a great movie wasn't it? I don't remember any parts about them using sunscreen though...and how did they keep those classic sun bonnets on?

Haha, that will be the secret of the director I guess and those Hollywood stars all have eternal tan. No need for sunscreen and they also had constant conversation without shouting. Secrets secrets.
