Red face Traveling US 16 across Wyoming

We're camping in West Yellowstone, Montana and are wondering how dangerous US highway 16 going to Buffalo, Wyoming is. We have a 35" class A motorhome pulling a tow dolly.

Not dangerous at all if you take it slow and gear down.

If you are concerned about the hills, you can cut down to Thermopolis on Rt. 120. Take Rt. 20 in Shoshoni right into Casper. That is my prefered route but I have done Rt. 16 a few times.

Didn't have any problems with out 32' V10 towing a Ford Explorer.

Beautiful drive if you are not in a hurry. Was a little slow going up the hills but I don't usually drive fast anyway. I like to see everything.

Came over 16 in July and stayed in Buff for a month We love it there. 16 is good road. Long grade up on the West side with some curves but not too steep. Plenty of turnouts if you need to let it cool off. Last five miles on the east side right before Buff are steep downhill and curvy with few turnouts except for truck run-away ramp, so take it nice and slow and use engine brake if you have it...lower gearing if you don't. There was constuction at the top of the pass above Ten Sleep when we came thru...gravel road for a couple miles with a pilot car, but that might be done with by now. Very pretty drive. Hwy 14 and particularly 14A I do not reccommend for RV. Some folks do it but I've been over it on the bike and I wouldn't take my RV threre. We pull a 40' FWTH with an HD 2500 Dura/Alison. If you happen to be in Buff on a Thurs night, try to catch the local blue grass/country music jam at the Occidental Saloon. It's great...sometimes as many as 20 locals playing. Get there early tho. After about 4:30 p you won't find a seat. Food there is good also.
