Oregon travel question

We are in Boise currently and want to head to Bend and then to Lincoln city taking Routes 20 and 26. We are concerned about going through the mountains. Any insight welcome. Our other option will be go north to Astoria although we have already gone through the Columbia River Gorge and would prefer 20 and 26. We are in a 34' Class A motorhome with a toad.

20 does have a few good pulls, but I made it without problems with a 42' towing an Explorer! IT has a tendency to be a long boring drive!

How is route 26 west through Oregon towards Lincoln City? I hear 20/26 is the most boring route so thought we'd try 26. We already did northern Columbia River Gorge route. Thoughts on 26?

26 can be narrow and slow through the fossil beds area between Dayville and Prineville. You still have a climb east of Prineville and a second one west of Sisters. 20 is flatter by far.

We just drove from Boise to Lincoln City (with a stops at Walla Walla, Columbia River Gorge and Portland). We used I84 instead of Hwy 20.

Once in the Portland area, I'd suggest avoiding 26 from Portland to the coast and going North through Astoria to the PCH instead. 26 isn't all that bad but other drivers are on your tail hoping you'll pull over, and that's while doing the speed limit plus a few miles over. There weren't many spot to pull over, and only 4-5 passing segments. To me it was a very aggressive road experience.

We pull a 34' FW with a F350.
