Pacific Coast

Can I go down coastal hwys 1/101 from Washington to Santa Barbara with a 40' motorhome and toad without problems in November? Put this request on another forum and forget where I put it. Hopefully will remember this time.

101 is just fine for a 40' MH. We wouldn't do Hwy 1 in ours.

101 is fine. Sometimes 101 and 1 merge. Just stay on 101 and you'll be ok.

But you can do 1. I've done it several times with a 28' tag, haven't in my class A DP yet but it will just be slow, and a bit tiring at times because you have to concentrate on driving vs looking at stuff. The area up around Pt Reyes is pretty twisty, and I'd skip the golden gate and go east around the bay area and pick up 1 south of SFO somewhere. The traffic downtown after the bridge is a PITA - more harrowing than the coast!

I'm surprised more people don't use google earth as a resource. Just zoom in and drive all the way from point a to point b and use street view when you want a roads-eye view.
