I don't think it's any problem at all. We've been through many times in our 40DP w/toad. Smooth sailing. In fact, 101 is fine for its entire length. Just don't confuse it with Hwy 1 (Pacific Coast Hwy). That's a different can of worms.

I agree with RickO. No problem at all. 101 is a fine road all through Oregon (and a lovely drive). We've driven it often in our 40-foot MH plus toad. We prefer north to south direction for the views (and easy access to view pullouts).

At least headed N-S, all the scenic pullouts are on your side of the road! We're just back from two weeks doing Astoria to Crescent City. Weather could have been more user-friendly. Cool, misty mornings and no real sunshine until maybe 14:00.

We tried to go south from Crescent City into the redwoods, but the fog got very thick as we climbed the ridge south of CC. There were several lengthy sections of single-lane roadworks due to slide damage, so we gave up and headed back, then 199 to Grants Pass and a meandering run home keeping within about 15 miles either side of I-5

Had an encounter with a rock wall while maneuvering into a slot at Harris Beach SP which put some minor creases in three of the passenger-side stow-bin doors. The park appears to date from the time when "big rigs" were 25' and slide-outs hadn't been invented. Neat park, though and a wonderful beach.
