We are new to rving and will leave on our first extended trip aug.5th.(about 6000 miles)
We have an '07 Allegro Bay 35ft.Workhorse/8.1 pulling a Saturn vue. We plan to make a stop in Jackson Hole Wy,on the way to Idaho and are concerned about Hwys 191 & 287 being too mountainous for a gasser.
Any info on these or better routes would be appreciated.

Hi Cap'n Krazy,
We are presently beginning our trip south on US191 from I-90 in Bozeman, MT. I'll be happy to give you my evaluation when we arrive in Idaho Falls tomorrow night.

I have no experience on 287. However, from previous trips I can tell you that all the highways in the Tetons, to and from Jackson, WY are good roads for any type RV.

Until tomorrow night.

Hwy 1191 is less mountainous, but quite a bit of traffic from Rock Springs to Pinedale.

Hwy 287 is more scenic and easy grades. There is a couple of areas of construction between Dubois and Moran Junction. Enjoy your trip to Wyoming.

You'll have no problem on either of these. I've done them with a 33' gasser and a 40' DP. I'd much rather go with 287 though. It's a much nicer drive and very scenic as you go through the Wind River Range valley.

Our trip south on US191 from Bozeman was a beautiful drive... unfortunately, our Idaho Falls GS park didn't have very accessable WiFi last night.

While I have no experience with US287, it appears to be similar to US191, which has good pavement, primarily 2-lane and reasonably wide shoulders except where it crosses rivers.

I'd say go for it and enjoy the trip.
