Hwy 1 southern california

Has anyone driven Hwy 1 in California from Carmel to San Simeon in an RV

We drove Hwy 1 from Crescent City to McKinleyville several years ago. (BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!) Not fun at all!
it doesn't look as twisty on the map farther south. We're in a 40' Allegro Bus - towing a Jeep Grand Cherokee. as always, thanks in advance for any advice.

Yes i drove that route in a 34ft A towing a toad slow drive but awesome views took almost 3 hours to go 60 or 70 miles but worth it the day we drove it it was clear and sunny not a single bit of fog or clouds in the sky. Also i drove it on a monday morning so there was no traffic at all

It is spectacular scenery but you can also head south on Hwy 101 to Paso Robles and then cut across the wine country to the coast which is about a 35 minute drive. You come out on Hwy 1 near Cambria about 8 miles south of San Simeon.
