You won't be able to take the RV up the Cavell Road in Jasper National Park, which usually opens in late June. The road is just too narrow and the RV won't be able to make it around the switchbacks. There is a parking lot at the bottom of the road for people to drop their trailers etc. I guess your options, if the road is open when you are here, and you really don't want to miss it are to rent a car, arrange a ride with someone else, sign up with one of the tour companies for a guided-hike-and-transportation-package, or hitch-hike.

Other than this, I can't think of anywhere else in JNP where you won't be able to go. RVs do go up the roads to Miette Hotsprings and to Maligne Lake.
