Bridges of Madison County

We're going to Shenandoah, Iowa late next week for a short stay, and then on to Nappanee, Indiana. Along that route, we would like to drive through Madison County to see the bridges. I'm trying to look up the area, but has anyone been through there - any tips or cautions for 41 ft RVs towing a car?

My advice would be to stay in Winterset at their wonderful city park. It has some pull throughs and all have full hookups if I recall correctly. IMHO I wouldn't want to try and drag the toad behind the coach and see the bridges.

We went through there a few years back. I agree with ddz1952, about staying in Winterset at the park. We didn't stay for the night but we did leave the moho at the park and took the toad to all the individual bridges. Some of them are not to far apart from each other, but a couple are and the roads are good. Most are paved but some are pretty narrow and no place to turn around a large rig.

Don't forget to visit John Waynes birth place while in Winterset.
