Phoenix, AZ to Eugene, OR

We will be towing a 40 ft fifth wheel with a Ram dually mid March. What is the best route from Phoenix to Eugene. We really would like to bypass the big cities as much as possible.

March is still early for a lot of 'scenic' driving. You could take 89N out of Flagstaff to just beyond Panguitch, UT. Then take Hwy 20 to I-15 and go north a short distance to Hwy 21 west to Minersville & Milford, UT and on to Great Basin Nat'l Park area on Hwy 50, Nevada. Just west (about 15 minutes) of Great Basin on Hwy 50 is a wonderful boondocking area 'Sacramento Pass BLM Scenic Pullout on the south side of the highway. RV overnight is welcome and there are great views, tables, shelters, pit toilet. GPS Coord. : N39.12105 W114.30559. At Ely, Nevada take 93 north to I-84 and Hwy 20/126 into Eugene.

We've done this route a few times with our 40' motorhome. Keep a close watch on the weather forecast for this time of year. The only big city you'll have is Boise, ID and it'll be over fast. A good place to stop around Boise if you're ready is Ambassador RV in Caldwell just after getting through Boise.

Have a great trip!

If it were me and weather permitting (and I've done this route several times) I'd go up from Phoenix to Kingman, Las Vegas, Fallon, Reno, Susanville, across to the town of Mt Shasta where you pick up I-5. That's if it is not snowing north of Reno. If snowing I'd head west on I-80 out of Reno and then take 65 north to bypass Sacramento. I've done this route with my present RV towing and also with a previous RV - a Dodge one ton with a 36 foot King of the Road 5th wheel.

1ciderdog; That route looks good. How plentiful are stations to get diesel fuel. It looks like a route to miss the CA traffic. Being from rural southern Iowa, we dislike multi lane hiways!!! Thanks

I usually fuel up in Kingman, again in the Fallon area and then Medford. I can go somewhere between 400 and 500 miles between fuel stops. There are fuel stops along the way but I'd try to use the larger town areas for fuel.
