Driving from Sequoia NP to Pfeiffer Big Sur with 25' trailor

My family and I will be travelling from Lodgepole Campground in Sequoia National Park to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park towing a 25' trailer.

From what I can see, we could depart Sequoia either heading north on 180 or south on 198. If we were to take 180, we would eventually reach the Coastal Highway (route 1) in Monterey and then make our way south to Big Sur. If we were to take 198 we would connect with 41 then 46 and eventually reach the Coastal Highway near San Simeon. From there we would proceed north to Big Sur.

I've heard that 198 is a tough one, as well as driving south on Coastal Hwy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure if I would attempt it. What are you driving? I travelled it in a camper truck which was fine and beautiful! I would never even contemplate doing it in a 42ft MH towing a 12ft trailer. There are lots of options and I hope you get to experience it as it is my favorite place I have been to so far!

I'm towing a 25' Evergreen Element with a VW Touareg. The information I've gathered so far is very ambiguous. Some people say it's fine, others that it's a nightmare. I'm trying to get specific information from those who have traveled the sections I'm considering with similar vehicles. I've traveled the Rockies, Yellowstone and Grand Teton as well as the White and Green mountains of NH and VT with this rig with no difficulty. I just don't want to find myself in an unwanted situation.
