Red River New Mexico, anybody driven MH up there?

We will be heading there in a few weeks, with 40' towing the Enclave. We will be heading west on I40 and cutting north up 285 it looks like.

Any road advice or issues/problems? I don't know what the grades are or how to find out. Everything is flat where I live.

Considering you are 40' long, I would advise you to take 285 N to east US 64. Turn N on New Mexico(NM) 522 then E on NM 38. It is a little longer route, but, it will keep you out of Taos and away from switch-backs.

More info. on US 64. US 64 between Taos and NM 38 is loaded with switch-backs. If you want to travel the "Enchanted Circle", use your car.

That route in your first post was my plan. Just not wanting any surprises.

I have been both ways in a 42' Dynasty towing and had no problems.

Just drove last week from Cimmirron, NM to Eagle Nest, NM to Angel Fire, NM to Taos, NM to Santa Fe, pulling my Silverado toad, no problems just take your time.

Thanks.
We just got back.
Went up through Clayton, Springer, Cimarron, Eagle Pass then Red River. Beautiful up there and it was a nice drive, very easy up to the 8700'.

We stayed in the Roadrunner RV. Nice place.
