So Cal to Prescott first time

I have a 38 ft diesel pusher (2006 Dutch Star) and have a Honda Accord on a Tow Dolly. I have taken this thing through some high and challenging roads through Colorado, California, and Utah, etc. We are going to see friends in Prescott and will be staying in Prescott Valley, and thinking about taking the 10 East from So Cal to the 89 north. Just how challenging would it be with my set up? I don't want to get too crazy on some hairpin turns, as it tends to loosen my tow straps. If it is unsafe for us, then I need an alternate route!

Hwy.89 from Wilhoit to Prescott it restricted to 30 ft. total length. Many 15 mph hairpin turns.
The route I would suggest is:
Exit 31 off of I-10, to hwy. 60.
Hwy 60 to hwy 71, 2 miles east of Aguila.
Hwy. 71 to 89 at Congress.
Take 89 to Kirkland Junction, then left to Kirkland. Pick up county rd. 15 going through Skull Valley to Prescott.
There is a steep climb of about 5 miles between Congress and Yarnel, but it is a 4 lane divided hwy.

Or, in AZ, take the 10 to the 17 and then the 69. Easy-peasy

I have taken the route AZBOUND described many times and with your rig it should be no problem. I have never had any problem with the hill or with traffic. You will go through Yarnell, site of the tragic fire.
