California SR70--Suitable route for 32' class A wth toad?

I am considering using California SR 70, also known as the Feather River Scenic Byway, to get from I-5 to Reno. Has anyone out there used this route? We would be traveling on 10/10. Trying to avoid Sacramento, I-80 and Donner Pass. We are in our first year as RVers and have logged about 3,000 miles--about half of it on 2-lane roads like CA 89, 44, 36, 395; NV 95; AZ 93; so I have a comfort level with the 2-lane driving I have done so far. Don't want to freak out the DW.

This last week on Sunday I left Reno heading west on I-80. I left I-80 on SR-20 at marker 161 which is just west of Donner. Just north of Yuba City I picked up SR-70 which put me on to US-99 and into Red Bluff. Mostly very good roads and traffic was running about 60 mph in the 55 mph zones. There was no problem with my 39K pulling the CRV. As said I went east to west but going to the east will involve some big gains in elevation for some of the mountain passes.
