driving through Seattle

Hi Everyone:

We will be driving through Seattle on our way to the Oregon coast. In the past, we have always taken the I5 - but that was with the 21 foot TT.

Now, with the motorhome, wondering about taking the 405, rather than the I5.
What have been other's experinces of driving through Seattle and "best routes"?

thanks,
peter

We prefer to drive thru on the weekends early in the morning. After evening rush hour also works for us. The casino in Everitt is nice stop for rv's to prepare for the run down the corridor thru Seattle/Tacoma. Honk when you pass thru Raymond!

We avoid Seattle and I-5 during the week. There are virtually no mid day gaps in traffic anymore. I'd recommend 405 to 167 to 512 and rejoin I-5 on the south side of Tacoma.

Watch out for the natives. They can get weird.

As others have stated there is no good times, or route through the Everett/Seattle/Tacoma corridor. Early in the morning (1 to 2 AM) is the least crowded, most other times it is grid-lock extrordinaire.
