Flagstaff to Zion 89 in 40 ft MH?

Heading up to Zion from Camp Verde (Hwy 17). We are in a 40ft MH with a tow vehicle and have never been on 89 out of Flagstaff to Zion. Any issues?

Thank you in advance for your help.

U.S. 89 to Mt. Carmel, UT, then UT 9 to Zion would be a 4 hour trip. No issues I remember.

Utah Heritage Highway 89

Only one problem and it is an easy fix. You will have to go East or West on 89, South of Page. If I were going to Zion, I'd take ALT 89 to Jacob Lake. From there you have a choice enter from the East: go to Kanab and take hwy 9, "I believe" into the park, which goes though a tunnel. There is some kind of a time frame for RVs in this tunnel. Or your other choice is to go From Jacob Lake to Fredonia, Colorado City to hwy 9 and in from the West/South. There are more RV parks along this route.

Also there is a Forest Service RV park and a private, at Jacob Lake. Which is on the route to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Vehicles over 19' aren't allowed into the park from the east. You can park in Springdale and ride the shuttle in or take your toad.

Perhaps you're thinking of the canyon itself, which is normally only shuttle bus except to drive to the lodge. The main east-west road has a 40' limit, and the tunnel requires an escort to take RV's of that size through.

I read the 19' limit somewhere, but now I can't find it. The Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel is narrow, an RV over 7' 10" wide (most all Class A and C) or 11' 4" high require a $15 permit good for 2 trips through the tunnel.

it is not a big deal.they stop all traffic and then you go thru the tunnel in a group using the center of the road but you will have to disconnect your toad and follow the motorhome . hundreds do it weekly without any problem

Tunnel restrictions are above 13'1" and a combined 50' length. Most RVs can fit height-wise but many motorhomes would have to disconnect the towed vehicle and drive separately. The best is to come in from the west via Fredonia, AZ on 389 to Hurricane, UT.
