Nevada State Highway 359 to Jackson, CA

We are planning to travel to Jackson, CA in late April for the Newmar Region I rally. We are looking at going up from Yuma up 95 through Nevada to Hawthorne and try Nevada State Highway 359 over to CA 395 and then head north to Jackson. Has anyone tried this route with a bigger rig? The other option is heading up to Carson City and then cutting west on CA 88 to Jackson.

Are we crazy or should we just go up and hit I80 and go west on it?

Any suggestions will be appreciated I'm trying to minimize my travel time in California.

NV-359 itself is a good road. You will have one pass to go over, Anchorite Pass at 7,626' (Hawthorne is at 4,320#). Your biggest climb, however, will be once you get to US-395 north of Mono City and start climbing up to Conway Summit...Mono City is at 6,769#, Conway summit is at 8,143#. I wouldn't think it would be much of a problem for your DP, however.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately My rig is a gas model but it still pulls the hills good. I haven't had any problems so far.
