Class A on Highway 50 from Reno to Ely?

Is it advisable to take our 38' Class A DP towing a Jeep on this stretch of Highway from Reno to Ely? Or should we take the longer route via Hwy 80 instead?

This would be our first long trip towing our 4 seat Jeep. I would like to see the territory along Highway 50 but we aren't so sure this is a good idea.

U.S. 50 through Nevada is an interesting route, and is certainly okay for your rig. As desert country goes, it is a very scenic route. I took that route from Colorado to California several years ago on my motorcycle. U.S. 50 through that part of the U.S. is known as "the lonesomest road in America" for a reason. Towns are scarce and far apart. Plan your trip accordingly.

I believe that is the Hiway known as the lonliest road in the USA. Not much out there. We drove our truck and 5th wheel over it a few years ago. The best thing it had to offer was it was a different route than the familar I80.

I like it, and you won't have any issues. More interesting than I-80, that's for sure.
