I haven't been on it myself, but according to the following CalTrans site, it's okay for coaches up to 45'

Take the 80 as the other choice has some challenging parts. Scenic but!

We're taking the same route in several days. We're in a 38ft fifth wheel. Any more details? Too windy? Narrow?

It's 2 lane.. not to windy but lots and lots of up and down... some kinda steep.. Nothing along the way like gas stations.
80 is only in bad shape as in bumpy, tore up pavement at and near the summit... other wise it's a good 4 lane Hi-Way. It's the way I go

Hwy. 44 from Susanville to Redding is just fine for a 45' MH towing. Prettiest part is over on the Eastern 1/2 of this route, but you'll not have any trouble. A very pleasant drive.

Have made the trip many times in a 40ft motorhome towing a toad. It' about 125 miles of good two lane road. There are a couple of steep spots but nothing really bad enough to worry about since you won't hit snow at this time of year.
