Hello. I am going to be taking the MH in my sig to Vegas from Chicago. Will I have any trouble in the mountains? What route should I take. Any advice on campgrounds/ RV parks? I will be towing an enclosed car trailer back to home to Chicago too. Thanks for any help.

Don7070...
It may be pretty quiet on the board until next weekend. I have a feeling many people will be gone for the Easter holiday.We can bump this thread if you have not gotten a response by then...

It depends on the time of the year. Your rig is certainly capable. I'm assuming you'll be taking I-80 to Julesburg, then I-76 to Denver, I-70 west to I-15, and then I-15 down to Vegas. The toughest part is the grades betwen Denver and Glenwood Springs but your coach will handle them just fine. If this trip is real soon the only issue would be if you get snow on I-70, in which case you'd have problems until the roads were cleaned up once again.

I know, it's suppoosedly spring according to the calendar but we just got 15" of snow in Milwaukee yesterday.

Cruzer's advice is right on the money.

If you have not driven in the mountains much take a look at this posting.

Yes, it was written in regards to a gas chassis MH, but it is all pretty much common driving tactics to use in the mountains.

Enjoy the trip.

If you have the time I'd recommend the following side trip. Leave I-70 at exit 147 in Utah, take Hwy 24 to Capital Reef NP and then Utah Hwy 12 to Bryce. These are good roads but typical mountain driving and very, very scenic. We've done this route in two different class C's and twice in our DP with toad, no problems. Best time to go would be May.
