Hwy 20 CA compared to Hwy 50 CA

Can anyone compare driving California highway 20 Willits to Fort Bragg with highway 50 Sacramento to South Lake Tahoe? (Grades, number of turnouts, shoulders, etc.)

Mountain Guide shows no warnings on 20, does on 50. We've done 20 in a 32' Class A pulling a Grand Cherokee. Slow & twisty but doable.

Those two sections of road can't be compared next to each other. They are very different. Hwy 50 you're getting into the High Sierras so it's going to be steeper.

We've driven Hwy 50 many times with our 40' motorhome with no issues. There aren't many places to pull over on the steep parts. It's a popular route with RVers and I'd avoid the weekends for driving it.

We've only driven Hwy 20 to Fort Bragg in our vehicle, mainly because we didn't want to drive on Hwy 1 with the motorhome. We just did a day trip in our car. It is very curvy but not necessarily steep.

We have driven Hwy 20 from Clear Lake to I-5 with our motorhome with no issues - curvy in sections but not steep.
