I went over it a few years ago (east bound) with my 34' MH (300hp diesel) towing a trailer (6500#) and it was slow but not a problem.

We have gone over it a few times. It is slow going while towing, so we dis connect and remove some that stress. Easy to reconnect on the other side.

Check weather just before you start. Several years ago, at the end of June, I needed 4 wheel drive for the last several hundred feet; 6 inches of snow on the road.

We went over heading east with a 38' my towing. Not as bad going down as some others we've done. Stop at the top and take beautiful pics.

We've done it both directions without difficulty with our 40' MH. Chances for snow is very, very low the end of June. It's a popular RV route. Have a good trip!
