Southwest Colorado is gorgeous and not as much traffic/people as around Denver or Colorado Springs. Pagosa Springs (soaking), Durango, Silverton, Ouray are favorite areas of ours. Also, Gunnison, Crested Butte, Taylor Park, Buena Vista.

New Mexico: Santa Fe, Taos, Bandelier Nat'l Monument area, Abiquiu highway taking you to Pagosa Springs, CO

We tend to stay in public parks (national forests, Corp of Engineers, national parks or boondocking areas.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

We love the 4 Corners area. Chama NM to Antonito CO remnant of the narrow gauge steam railroad is a state park designated by the two states. The scenic loop from Mesa Verde NP (US 160) to Durango CO (another famous narrow gauge steam train ride), then north on the Million Dollar Highway (US 550) through Silverton and Ouray over to Telluride and back to Mesa Verde by way of Delores (SR 145) is a beautiful ride of at least 200 miles. I'd suggest leaving the rv in camp and exploring in the toad or tow vehicle if you have a choice.
This year we chose Echo Basin Ranch, Mancos, CO from www.rvparkreviews.com to stay for a week. We tend to primarily stay in full hookup commercial campgrounds now.
Have a great trip. Safe travels.

How is the road from Durango to Moab? 160 West 184 to 491 to 191. We drive a 32' Class A Gasser with a tow. Thank you.

I've driven 160 *east* of Durango with my truck conversion, no problems. Also driven 491 and 191 out of Farmington into (and past) Moab, again no issues. These are 2-lane highways and they have passing lanes and generally decent shoulder width. Nothing to be concerned with.

Last August 4 lane 160 West had some construction with short delays between Durango and 184. The rest of your route is 2 lane with adequate shoulders. 184 and 491 were smooth. There is a good fuel stop at 160/184. We did not drive 191 but in the past it was an easy drive.


Have fun! Drive safely.
