Trip late June Moab to Colorado Springs

Looking for a route other than Interstates from Moab to Colorado Springs. M/H is 43' towing 4Dr Jeep Wrangler. Prefer route with no more than 6% up/down grades. 2 lane roads are not a problem. Appreciate any suggestions.

Moab to CS your going to hit some hills no matter what route you take.

Moab to Denver, I-70 then south on I-25 south to CS
OR
Moab to Grand Junction, south on highway 50 to Pueblo, then north on I-25 to CS

Moab to Denver your going to hit the Denver traffic, what a pain. Interstate all the way
Moad thru Pueblo longer trip, but no Denver traffic. Two lane highway most of the way.

I would go thru Pueblo, but that's me. Retired and no hurry

We would take I-70 east and drop down a little in Colorado to Hwy 50 east from Montrose. It's a beautiful, easy drive. Yes, you'll have few 'hills' but with your MH you're good to go! Have fun!!

I can get You there except for the 6% max part.

I'v done this very route a few years ago.

From Moab go south on 191 to UT 46 turn left(east) to the state line (there grades on both side of the state lines) where the route turns into CO state route 90 to Nucla CO , then take 145 to Placervile, Then 62 to east to Ridgeway , and from there go North on 550 to Montrose, then US RT 50 to Canon City where you can fine CO 115 to Colorado Springs.
Monach Pass, (also the Continental divide) is on RT 50 as well.

Do you have the http://www.mountaindirectory.com/ book ?
if not I'd recommend getting one.
