Steamboat Springs to Kremmling

I am currently in Vernal Utah and will be driving on Hwy 40 to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It has been really hot with temperatures up to 97 degrees lately. I have a 39 foot Class A Workhorse gas and am towing a Suzuki Grand Vitara. I am worried about how to get over the passes to Kremmling. Colorado. The most direct route seems to be stay on Hwy 40 and go over Rabbit Ear Pass and Muddy Pass. The other choice seems to be to take Hwy 131 and 134 which goes over Gore Pass. I was at a Visitor's Center in Dinosaur, Colorado today and the gentleman there recommended the second choice. What do you guys recommend? I need to make this trip on Wednesday. Thanks!

We did rabbit ears in our PA gasser and did fine, slow down and let em pass you, nice comfortable ride as long as you keep the speed down.

I'd vote for 40. Good road, and the passes aren't all that bad. As others have said, enjoy the scenic ride, go at a comfortable pace, and leave a bit earlier in the morning to benefit from cooler air, although weather forecasts indicate it will be a toasty week here in CO.
