Going 441 over the mountain

I'm going from Pigeon Forge to Cherokee. Was wondering about traveling over the mountain in a 38ft diesel pusher. The alternate route is way out of the way.

No problem at all . I've made this trip many times in 35 ft gas mh pulling a car .
Enjoy the casino at Cherokee. You can park in the parking lot free (no hookups)

I agree. Done this route several times. The speed will be slow because of traffic.

Last year about this time there was some construction going on at the top. Part of the mountain was trying to slide off just short of the NC line. It was narrow for a short distance in a couple of places, but still very doable and saves a huge amount of time and miles vs I-40 to Waynesville and back down to Dillsboro.

Just went from Gattlinburg to Cherokee on 441 2 weeks ago in a car. You will have no problem other than lots of traffic and your speed will be about 35 MPH. Quite a few tight turns but managable in a MH.

Take a break and pull into the large public parking space at Newfound Gap. Highest point on the route at about 5,050 ft. Beautiful views.
