Road to Alsea Oregon from I-5

Has anyone taken a large RV (38' DP) up to Alsea Oregon from I-5? Is that road to narrow and twisty for a large MH with a toad? We were thinking of going to the cg there but we are not sure if that would be a good idea.

I drove from Waldport on 101 through Alsea, Philomath and Corvallis in March.

I was not towing but my recollection is from I-5 through Corvallis and Philomath to Alsea is pretty wide and mostly straight. As you go West past Alsea the road through the coast range to Waldport is winding.

I have driven it a couple of time with my 36' dp and towing. It is pretty much like marvel said. Take it slow on the curves and you should have not problem. As I recall the traffic has never been bad.

I have driven that road 43' with toad. Not a problem, but typical 2 lane across the Mt range. Some log trucks, two lane, some passing lanes, and a nice ride. Take your time. Crabbing can be fun from the public pier.
