April is a good month to do the Southern Tier.  If you get the ACA maps you will see lots of places to camp.  It might be a little cool in the mountains of New Mexico and Arizona but the desert temps shouldn't be too hot.  With the current rains the desert may still be in bloom when you pass through.
