We're going to Moab from Denver and road 128 seems to follow the Colorado River. I imagine there is some spectacular scenery on this road.
Lots of horizontal twisties and probably many vertical ones too.
Has anyone drove this road with 35' MH and motorcycle trailer?

I know someone who goes that route from time to time cuz he camps on blm land along that road. He pulls a full size 5th wheel. Have never take it before so I can say more than that. 191 is very scenic coming into moab and south of moab.

I have done that stretch a few dozen times in all manner of cars and motorcycles but never an RV.

We will be tackling that in the "new" Newmar Kountry Star this spring break (March).

This is a great stretch of road.

Starts off in the high desert but as you get closer to the Colorado River you dive into the river valley that essentially forms the southeastern part of Arches National Park.

The same type of erosive environment that forms this whole area including the Grand Canyon.

Truly spectacular scenery. 400 foot cliffs abound along the Rio.

I will have no problem dropping the 38 footer in there.

In fact, I have seen many Class A rigs plus large trailers towing rafting boats etc. You will have no problems.

Make sure you stop by Fisher Towers and stop by for some wine at the Red Cliff Lodge.

Awesome places to camp all along this stretch.

You will have a blast. Far more entertaining than the 191.

Safe travels....

Gossen

Wow, Gossen , you made it sound like 'lots of fun'. We'll have to go that way. Were going either the week before or after Jeep week at Moab. We have dirt bikes
We gotta see Fisher towers since we are the Fisher family. Are you going to Moab for some outdoor fun too?

Greeting Max!
You will have fun.
Especially, if you have dirt bikes and other good toys.
We will be out there with a whole Krewe over spring break. 3/24 to around 3/30. Got four class A's and a few Airstream Trailers coming out. We will circle the wagons and have a blast.
Feel free to pull up for a couple of cold ones!
Enjoy the sites!
Gossen

SR-128, or "The River Road" as the locald call it, is a great drive. Ever since they replaced the Dewey Suspension Bridge it's very safe for an RV. There are lots of scenic places to pull over and you will be driving with beautiful red rock scenery on your left and the Colorado River on your right. Quite a few westerns were filmed in this area and if you stop at the visitor's center you can get a brochuyre explaining where all the sites are.

Took that route in September w/ 40' MH towing 2 ATVs on a flatbed trailer. Had no problems! Can't wait to do it again! We stayed at Arch View campground - about 9 miles out of Moab. It was fabulous and there were ATV trails running right out of the camp. Had to trailer the ATVs to get to Gemini's Twins (highly recommend that view) but it was a short ride to the staging area and a long beautiful ride on the ATVs to the Twins - there were dirt bikes on the trails as well!

Cheers!
Michele

I take that back - we did not have to trailer the ATVs for Gemini's Twins. Just had to follow a trail along the highway and cross the highway. Sorry about that!
