Hwy 101 info

Heading North from SoCal in a few days, thinking of hitting Hwy 101 North of San Fransisco and traveling up to Washington then to I 5 and to BC. It has been many years since I traveled Hwy 101 and that was on motorcycles, I remember it being quite twisty, I am now pulling a 5th wheel.
Will I have a problem on Hwy 101 due to the road?
Thanks in advance for the replys

Not on the 101. I've traveled that road the entire way in our motorhome towing a Dakota pickup. As you probably know, the really interesting road is the CA 1 which is not for the faint of heart. Enjoy your trip.

Not in Washington you won't. When you hit Hoquim you can stay on the west side of O.N.P. or the west side of Hood Canal. Coast is a bit longer. Both are good routes. I travel both a couple of time a year. Make a res. for the Pt. Townsend ferry and take Hwy. 20 up and p/u I-5 in Burlington.

x2 on Maverick's suggestion. All easy travelling roads and light traffic. Highway 20 is almost in our backyard. I'm more familiar with the Washington Coast than the Hood Canal part of 101 but neither is a problem, even with a big DP and toad.

This question comes up frequently so I saved this. Just reverse the route when going West to east.

Take Highway 20 West out of Williams. 37.1 miles. Williams is at I5 and Highway 20.

Watch for Highway 53 as you drop down a hill after a fairly long climb. Easy climb and multiple lanes.
Turn what would be South onto 53. You will go about 8 miles. Look for the sign to Highway 29 which leads to Kelseyville. This is a nice road and will become freeway in a few miles. Eventually you are back to two lane for a short distance and will come to a stop sign. You are back to Highway 20 again. This leg is about 30 miles. Turn left and enjoy the beautiful drive right to 101

This route will bypass the two lane twisting and winding on the North side of Clear lake. If you want a good view of the lake go ahead and stay on 20 all the way to 101.
