Crescent City Ca to South of Sacramento

We are traveling south from Cresent City Ca to Rio Vista CA (south of Sacramento). I think I read that hwy 101 was a narrow road for a RV. Is there a better way to go or is 101 the best way? We are traveling in 40' motorhome with Jeep towed.
Thanks for any advice.

JMHO; 101 is ok unless your passenger is a nervous rider , because the drop offs on the roadside can be very distracting . Highway 1 , should be avoided with an RV.

Just came up from San Fran to Trinidad in a 45 ft. Hwy 101 is a pretty good highway without RV length restrictions. It is very hilly but scenic. Some grades around 5 - 6%. Stay away from US-1 except for using the toad.

We've traveled 101 from Crescent City to the Golden Gaye Bridge in a 40' with toad. Great road.

No idea of where you have read 101 was narrow - I think maybe you are thinking of hwy 1. I've traveled 101 from north of Crescent City south many times and it is a good highway.

Crescent City, South to Klamath is the narrowest, crooked and worst shape of the entire road. The are always working on that 20 or so miles and it was closed 4 or 5 times this Winter.
When they are working on that part of the road, they put up K-rails and reduce the road to one lane and it is a narrow one lane, but usually only for 1/4-1/2 mile at a time.
