395 north out of Reno, first night at Goose Lake State Park on the OR/CA border or approx 150 miles further at LaPine State park. Continue 97 north to I82 and I90 into The middle of Seattle. If your leaving soon, stop and say hi. Were hosting at LaPine right now.

We like to go up 97 and cut over to I-5 at 58 which connects with I-5 just south of Eugene. Then a straight shot through Portland and to Seattle.

Plan your time right going through Portland (mid day) and same with Olympia, JB Fort Lewis and McCord and Seattle to avoid the heavy traffic times.

If you want to get there in the most direct route possible (and maybe the least stressful), go 395-County road A3 out of Buntingville to Standish, then back on 395-299-139-140-97-58-I5 to Seattle. This is a truck route, no problem on length or roads.

If you want something else, then telling us about it can help us help you.

I don't remember all the highway numbers but I go up 395 to Susanville then cross over to (maybe) 44, then 89 to near Mt Shasta on I-5 in northern California then I-5 on north.

You have many good options with your 38'. We've done them with our 40'. Just work your way over to one of them: 395, 97, 101 coastal although if you're returning the same route, save 101 for your return. The Oregon coast will be convenient to see from pull-outs on the passenger side and you will have an easy time to re-enter 101. Lots of excellent state parks or RV parks along the way. All are beautiful routes and doable with your MH. We, ourselves, would stay off the boring interstates.
