95 is good road but not much along the way. We've stayed in Beatty. There's couple of overnight type parks that are decent. Only other town before you hit Fallon is Tonopah One way or the other you're going to have a fairly long drive once you leave Beatty unless you stop again in Tonopah. Couple decent park(s) in Fallon. Not sure which route you're taking, but there's a fairly good RV park in Fernley...Fernley RV Park, right off I-80 at 50. If you are taking 395 North from Reno, plan your day so you don't hit the I-80 / 395 interchange at peak traffic. It's terrible traffic wise, made worse by never ending construction. It can be confusing also. You DO NOT want to go towards the airport/Carson City. You want to go north towards Susanville There's an alternate route that we really like that avoids Reno altogether. SR 447 right out of Fernely, up along the east side of Pyramid lake all the way up to Cedarville, then over the pass to 395. Good road but not much along the way in case of trouble, but then there's really not much along 395 either once you get north of Reno until you get to Susanville. It depends on how far north you're going before you head NW into ORE. We've been all the way down 395 from Spokane to Reno. It's good road (except that damn Reno interchange). Both 447 and 395 are two lane most of the way. The climb over the pass to 395 at Cedarville is short. A bit steep on the East side but not too curvy. Not sure how you're going so I hope this helps.

For what it's worth we have property near Kingman and near Grants Pass Oregon. Our preferred route heading north is up 95 to Reno then 395 to Susanville and then 36 then 44 towards Mt Shasta CA and pick up I-5. If winter that is not our preferred route, I-5 & I-40 for winter weather.
