I am planning to go to Flagstaff, AZ in May. Streets and Trips says the best route for us is I-10 to Deming, NM then Hiway 180 to Holbrook,AZ.
NOW, the question, is it a good road? I am pulling a 30 foot Cougar 5er with a 2005 Duramax.
As y'all know anything higher than an overpass here in the flatlands of the Texas Coast can get spooky for us. Preciate the help.

I do not know about 180 in New Mexico, but in Arizona it is wide 2 lane some small grades but no problem for your rig. Have fun. Hope this helps.

We drove that route in the car about three weeks ago. Good two lane road for the most part. There are some pretty good grades in the northern part of the route in NM. You get to 8500+ feet elevation near Alpine, AZ. Take your time, watch the weather and drive with care.
