Has anyone ever driven their motorhome to the top? May be passing thru without our tow car and was wondering if It is motorhome friendly ?

[Unless you have a very small motorhome...] You won't be able to drive it to the top. They will stop all over-sized/over-length vehicles at the Visitors' Center. I will add that the parking at the Visitors' Center is very limited -- we had a hard time turning around (w/toad) to leave and there was only one other car in the parking lot.

actually we drove our 40 footer to the top.
they closed the road and we followed a park service truck to the top. then going back down they closed it and we idled in 1st gear all the way down.
they will not let you take a trailer up, only the rv or just a toad.
at the top there were two tour busses and one other rv
We were toadless and asked about walking up and they said...no we will close the road.

my wife videod the drive back down....it was hair raising as the raod is narrow and the drop offs are LONG if you screw up.
I have a picture somewhere will have to look
