Take an American icon with you for the ultimate glamping road trip. The only question is, “How do I back this thing up?” (The answer: Slowly.)
 
Our trip was a throwback with a modern twist, an all-American version of glamorous camping—glamping—out to the great big red-rock canyons in Utah and back. But we didn’t buy the shimmery silver American icon; we rented it—and the GMC Denali to pull it.
