If you are planning to take I-5 into Southern Oregon, I would go North on I-5 to Sutherlin, and take OR 138 West to Elkton, where you intersect with OR 38 Westbound to Reedsport and U.S. 101. You are now on the coast. Sutherlin to Reedsport is all well paved highway, with numerous passing lanes and turnout areas. Easy going for an RV. I live in Florence, which is just North of Reedsport, and have traveled that route many times in a 36 Ft. Class A towing a Jeep. There will still be a fair amount of tourist traffic next month, but slowing down.

I would just jump over from 5 at a convenient spot and enjoy the drive north.

If you are now having trouble with overheating I would have it looked at. If your's is a rear radiator coach I would suspect that it needs to be cleaned. Do some searches on IRV2 on the best way.
when you drove on 101 in 2009, did you tow the jeep at the time? we intend to drive along 101 from olympic np down to san francisco. just want to make sure no real difficulties with a 40'er + toad...

Just drove the 101 last month pulling our jeep from Olympia, over the Golden Gate Bridge, then on to Ventura. It's good road. The bridge toll was $29 however.

We have driven the 101 from WA to San Fran with a MoHo and toad and it is not a problem. Now driving through the city is not something I would do again as I choose to go around the city.

Lesson learned, stick to yellow highlighted routes in the truckers atlas.
Also remember that some roads are off limits to anything over 40' in CA. CA publishes and map and even on non-limited highways you can't go more than 1 mile from the main road. And don't forget the 55 mph limit if towing ANYTHING. I did and it cost me $465 and my first ticket in almost 30 years!

299 is not length restricted. Here's a site showing northern CA coastal highway restrictions. http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/traffops/tr...busmap-d01.pdf
