US 441 Across The Smokies

Sitting here in Pigeon Forge TN and looking at the map. I want to go to western NC but I am unsure about taking US 441 over the Smokies.

I have a 30ft gas Class A towing Focus. I have talked to two people about doing it. The 1st, an outfitter, said "no way". The 2nd, a Ranger, said it depended on my level of confidence. The ranger said that large tour busses traverse that area all the time and so do RV'S.

I would like some opinions from people who know the area before I make a decision.

Went over the top today in the TOAD (New Found Gap) and it is doable by motorhome. I saw a DP ahead of us doing quite well. The speed limit is 35 MPH and that is fine given the curves and hills. Also saw a gas Class A MH going towards Gatlinburg no problem.

I did this in preparation for our trip tomorrow but all for naught. We are going up to visit a friend up north in Elkin, NC. Thanks anyway.
