I would stay in Zion

There are multiple other bucket list hikes in the park. I would pick one of those for the third day. Probably Observation Point if you still have the energy for another hard day.

Note that Angels Landing is not a hard hike. You’re up and down in a couple of hours. If you have no fear of heights.

The Narrows is much harder because of the distance and the hiking through water thing. So if I was planning my hikes I’d do the Narrows on the first day. Then Angels Landing as a recovery day. Then Obvs Point or Rim Trail.

Bryce is at least 1.5 hours away from Zion in an RV. Opposite direction of Vegas. So you’re losing time that could better used hiking an additional day in Zion.
