Central AZ to NE AZ

Hello,

Anyone experienced with:

Hwy 191 North to Safford, AZ
Hwy 70 West to Globe, AZ
Hwy 77 North to Show Low, AZ

Is it doable/advisable with a 35' Class A with Jeep Wrangler Unlimited tow?

I see some switchbacks on google, but would like to hear from experience first hand if I can get it.

Thanks.

It's a pretty ride and all doable in your rig. There are some steep grades going through Salt River Canyon that will slow you down but I did it without a problem.

I think 191 was the old rt 666. It's pretty twisty but you just need to slow down and enjoy the ride

That is the sort of thing I was wanting to hear. Thanks!

I sent my reply on the Escapees Forum. Yes, the roads are good.

We came back from Payson last Fall and did your route from Globe to Safford to IH10, pulling a 43' 5th wheel. No problems there. Looks like 77 to Show Low may be the most questionable.

Thanks for all the replies! Sorry it took a few days to get back here, had to deal with some heavy rain/flash flood issues.
