Sedona to Las Vegas with Class A

Back in rainy we(s)t coast, dreaming of our warm, dry first Snowbird winter and already thinking of plans for upcoming trip south later this year.

Next season we plan to travel north from Apache Junction and spend a short time in Cottonwood - near Sedona area - as we are Thousand trails members and they have a campground there. We would like to head from there to their campground near Henderson, Nevada, just off Boulder Highway, Hwy 95.
After that, we would slowly head our way north west, back to BC, Canada.

Question 1 : has anyone travelled this route in a Class A with pulling a car?
We are not sure of the condition of Hwy 95 between Cottonwood and Henderson/Las Vegas and would be grateful for any personal experiences.

Question 2 : any suggestions on good routes from Henderson/Vegas heading north west?

Don't know about 95, but we did 93 and it was great. 35 ft pace with toad.

1. I've done both. You cannot go wrong either way.

In the last week or so we took 95 out of North Las Vegas to Tonapah, NV; and then west on 6 to Bishop, CA; then north on 395 to Reno, NV; then west I80 to Sacramento; then north on I5 to our current location in central OR off I5. No problems save the rough road on I5 just west of the Sacramento Airport, (Conaway Bypass)... Batten things down as the seams will jar all but the most securely fastened away from the major lump. We lost at least a hub cap and who know what other bits... the cat is still hiding somewhere in the motor home but we can't find her... Holed up now at the Monaco factory in Coburg, OR for repairs.... And I hear the ASPCA is eager to talk with us too....

Highway 93 from Kingman AZ to Henderson, NV is good road and probably a few miles shorter than going over to 95. From Reno I'd suggest 395 to Susanville and then across 44 to 89 to I-5 near the town of Mt Shasta. Very pretty mountain route and good spring or summer road.

watch out for the "speed traps'' in beatty, tonapah and goldfield, nv. when the sign says 25 mph, do 20 mph. my radar detector was alerting constantly.
we saw a lot of trucks pulled over and getting ''green stamps''.

So glad to hear from those of you who have "been there and done that".
The news here in Western Canada is full of the report of the couple from here that were travelling from here to Las Vegas and got lost in the backroads when their GPS led them through a "short cut". She was found, luckily alive, after 7 weeks in their van. No word yet on her husband, who struck out on foot March 22nd to try to get help.
No more relying on GPS alone for me!!!!
