That route is all good highway and very pretty this time of year. The Astoria bridge over the Columbia River can get windy in the afternoons but still plenty wide...just go slow if you need to. You'll go over one mountain pass to get over the coast range on your way over to Kelso/Longview. Take in Long Beach WA for a short side trip. Very fun city-walk and the beach boardwalk is always nice. The town is very RV friendly with plenty of parking just one block east of the highway.

Have fun...safe travels.

Not a bad drive, a little twisty coming into and through Astoria, round-a-bouts just after the bridge on OR side. We've done it many times in both directions in 40' pulling Jeep TOAD.

highway 30 between astoria and ranier is a major highway and much easier than going down the washinton side.

Actually the WA (Hwy 4)side is a good road also. Not as we'll traveled and pretty drive you can get a lot of "crazies" on OR30 since it's one of the main roads to the coast from Portland. You see more of the Columbia River on Hwy 4 and the passes don't seem as steep. Just before you get to Ilwaco, take Hwy 101 Alt, cross the Astoria Bridge which is 4 miles long and your almost in downtown Astoria. Hertz Rent a Car used to film commercials from that bridge back in the '60's.
Also there is a great state park campground in Ilwaco (Cape Disappointment) where some sites butt right up to the Pacific Ocean
