I will be traveling from Seattle to San Francisco in July. How is driving a motorhome on the 101. We are not in a hurry but have heard that it is very narrow in some places.

Agreed, Hwy 1 is very challenging in places. I went all the way down Hwy 1 with a 33 foot 5th wheel ONCE. It is beautiful but I got tired of looking at my own tail lights.

Hwy 101 has some narrow places, but manageable. I've driven it many times with a 36' DP with a Jeep wrangler in tow...no problem. I have no concerns about driving my 43' with a tow. I would not recommend Hwy 1 from Fort Bragg, Ca to Bodega Bay, Ca very narrow and lots of curves.
San Francisco has no freeways through the city. I would reccommend not driving the motorhome. If you must take 19th avenue just after the Golden Gate bridge to I280. It is the widest with 2 lanes of traffic each way.

The "narrowist" places on 101 are in Southern Oregon, from about Gold Beach south to Brookings. Not the entire route, just some sections. We have driven this route several times with our 28' trailer (47' overall length) without difficulty.

Of course, your definition of "narrow" may differ from mine!

BTW, don't bother to stop at the Sea Lion's Caves. They aren't in the caves at this time of year... it would be a waste of your money during the summer. Enjoy the trip and don't hurry.
