Nevada route 6

We are planning the next leg of our journey, from Ouray, CO to Mammoth Lakes, CA. We will be taking NV 50 but instead of going all the way to Carson City we are considering route 6 from Ely to Bishop, CA. How is this road and is it RV friendly? Our rig is a 38' 5ver. Thanks for any advice.

We took Nevada 6 to Bishop about three years ago in our Axis. A bit of a grade but next to no traffic and the road was in good shape. You won't have any problem with it.

6 is fine, but know that you are going to go from Ely to Tonopah and then North on 95 a bit and then across to Bishop. Also its a 160 plus miles from Ely to Tonopah with no fuel in between there.

I live 50 miles north of Tonopah and it's actually a really good road, just be prepared for a relaxing drive and stop in Tonopah for Mexican food at El Marquez restaurant

Well did you enjoy the drive, and Mexican food? We're leaving tomorrow for Yellowstone, Glacier and flaming gorge.

Passing through Tonopah

We did and it was better than expected. We hit a bit of construction, with gravel, on NV Rte 50 and then on NV Rte 6 south of Tonopah. But overall it is a very good RV road. We stayed at Tonopah Station, hotel with RV sites in back, which was ok if a bit noisy. We did see a Hotel / RV park just west of the city (on Rte 6 / 95) which would have been a better choice.

Have safe travels!
