best route from Winder Ga to Pigeon Forge Tenn in a 33 Ft Class A

Taking a trip In Oct and its taking me up 441 n/ga15 n towards the KOA Campground there, is this a good route ? I will be driving a 33 ' Class A and it shows a tunnel as i get closer to Pigeon forge on this route and looks like a very close and windey road in places ? I live near athens Ga which is only about 45 mins from the SC line. Any help would be appreciated,

You are right about it looking winding. Just looking at Google Maps, (and not having been north of Franklin on US23/441) I would seriously consider going on up US23/74 to I-40 and crossing over there. My little View is short and great on winding roads, but it don't like steep grades. You are enough longer that winding roads are probably not the thing to do.

I drove US 178 North thru the Jocassee Gorges Wilderness Area on the SC/NC border a month ago. After hitting a decent straight stretch in NC I passed a Class A headed south whose driver waved and gave me a big smile. I thought to myself that he would not be grinning in a few minutes.

Wanted to add to this, quoting from a post on a different forum, someone who lives in Tennessee, so hopefully he knows what he is talking about.

"A word of caution on 441 and Cherokee NC....its quite "hilly" and has some pretty good grades and turns. I also caution you if you think you can go through the Smoky Mountain National Park on 441. If you are not experienced at true mountain driving while towing then DO NOT GO THAT WAY. Its steep and twisty....first up....then down. I see RV's with burned up brakes every time I go through there. I-40 out of Waynesville is the way around it and that's still hilly through the "gorge" but not daunting. You can handle it. "

I'd also add that PF is one of the ugliest places I ever visited. The worst city planning I've ever seen.
