Hwy. 101

Leaving Desert Hot Springs with a 40 foot Class A and toad.

Want to head up I-5 to Hwy 20
Take 20 to 101 and then head north.

Any problems with this route?

Thanks

We've done it with our 40' MH. I would recommend stopping for a couple nights just north of Leggett on 101 at Ancient Redwoods RV. It's good for big rigs and you'll be able to check out the big trees in the area via lots of nice easy trails.

OK... left Crescent City and heading north to Lincoln City.
The GPS (Garmin RV) tried many times to get us off of the 101.
Ignored this and just kept going north.
Got past Florence and GPS trying every street to turn us off.
Not quite to the Sea Lion Caves and the GPS warning came on
'SOLID RED' telling us a height restriction of 11'5".
Our coach is taller than that but I had entered 12'3" into the GPS.
I was able to turn around just before the Caves.

QUESTION..... Is there really a bridge or tunnel with that low of clearance?
If so, where is it?
Had to divert around it and come back to 101 via Hwy 34.

I went up 101 last summer all the way into Washington. There were no bridges, tunnels, or anything else to route us off 101. I can't imagine there would be anything now. My mh is at least 13 ft tall. Enjoy the route and especially the sea lion caves. Oregon coast is beautiful country.

There is a tunnel just north of the Sea Lion Caves but I don't know the clearance.

Simply stated your GPS is inaccurate. I've traveled 101 in our motorhome and have not encountered any "low" overpasses etc. Large commercial trucks us 101 every day without problem.

I have traveled 101 from California to Washington many times and never had any problems and I am at 13 feet.

Anyone else know of this????
I saw no warning signs on the highway.
This warning only came on my GPS.

There are two, but they are both 14ft or above for the travel lane.

We drove back (in the car) to see what was going on.
We saw the two measurements and wondered why the
Garmin RV GPS would only read the "shoulder" height.

Will contact Garmin to see if this can be changed

We were through there earlier this week with our coach at 12 ft 6. Everything we seen was 14 ft. plus. If it were not for the DW the Garmin would have gone out the window. I didn't find the route that RV friendly when you are going north. There were no really good places to pull off and enjoy the view unless you crossed over to the other side which was not so safe due to not being able to see what was coming at you. I tried pulling into a visitor center and there was nowhere to park there as well. There are lots of areas to pull into but you are going in blind not knowing what you are faced with. It is a very beautiful drive and the scenery was awesome.

It is the route I always recommend. Once on 101 there is nothing that will be an issue in my experience. 1 is a whole different story. People often get them confused on the forum.
