Yes, just last summer. Beautiful drive, too bad I was the only one in our 40 foot RV to see it. Kids slept through the whole thing, left early in the morning. Air horn moved the buffallos off the road where noone else's regular horn would! Didn't wake the kids, though! lol

We've done Hwy 16 from W. Yellowstone, through the park and on to Cody. It was very doable. You will have Sylvan Pass to negotiate but many RVers do it. Have a good trip!

We just drove from Fishing Bridge YNP to Cody on US 14/16/20 (same road) on 3 June. It was a pleasant drive in our 34QFA towing a CRV. I didn't get to see as much scenery as DW, but I still thought it was easy enough, considering the grades and turns.

What is a 34QFA ? Gas ?? How about going through Powder River Pass in a 31 foot gasser pulling a Jeep Wrangler ??? Headed to Fishing Bridge in 2 days . . . . .then we want to head to Mt. Rushmore, but I see that Powder River Pass on the map and understand it has some 7% grades on there . . . .

Sorry, I forgot it wasn't in my signature. Allegro RED 34QFA, is a dp. Small Cummins ISBXT 6.7, 340 hp. I was towing a Honda CRV, appx 3500lbs. I did not go US 16 thru Powder River Pass so I don't know anything more about it than what is in the Mountain Directory West writeup.

Thanks for the thread. We are in Rapid City SD, heading for Yellowstone on June 27. We were looking at going north to I-90, and down through the park on hwy 89. Is that easier than taking 16? Another possibility is going around to US 191 at Bozeman. Or..................around to US 287 and down the west side.

We are in a 39 ft DP pulling a light car.

Any good ideas?

Tom

16 is a pretty scenic drive. There is a big pull off at the top of Powder River Pass where overnighting is ok. It's at 9700'.
