Not only do you have to worry about motorcyclists but you have to worry about bicyclists too. Nothing like going around a curve (doing the speed limit) and there is a bicyclist in the middle of your lane. They do not ride on the shoulder.

The parkway is a great drive. The tunnel clearance is at the white line at the edge there's plenty of room for big class a motor homes, tour buses travel the BRP every day. Yes there are bikes and bears and deer as well as hikers. Like any other back road you travel be careful and watch the road. The speed limit is 45 MPH with plenty of pull outs, to me it's less stressful than I 81. I've always gotten into one of the camp grounds and had happy camping

We have driven it many times in our RV. The biggest was28', the last one was a Winnebago View 25' Sprinter Chasis. The Sprinter drove like a sportscar, comparatively.

Our last night on the BRP (10 mos ago)was spent at Peaks of Otter campground, on the Parkway. As we got closer to the campground, toward the end of the day, the fog started setting in. When we finally got to the campground, the fog was so thick, we only had about 30 feet of visibility, I never lost sight of the road stripes, and, there were no other fools on the road with me. We set up, had a glass of wine, and walked over to the lodge for a great meal- we have lots of good BRP memories -going back40 years, most all of them in a motorhome.

I think the BRP is the best part of our RVing memories

Also while there aren't restrictions on the BRP some of the access roads do have restrictions. People need to be aware of these or they could very well get hung up.

Bump has the right attitude. It can be done in a large RV, but because it CAN be does not mean it SHOULD be. Think about the other vehicles backing up behind you and the safety of their passengers as well as yours. Do it in a car or Jeep and leave the MH in the CG
