I love that trip but when you get to California, stay on 101 and explore the coast with your toad. This will remain true all the way to Santa Barbara. Yes, there are stretches of Hwy 1 that would be OK but, especially headed south, whoever is sitting in the copilot's seat will have a very high "pucker factor" on many of the turns.

We traveled hwy 1 with our 26' travel trailer and it was iffy in some places.

Now that we have a 5th wheel, I would not even consider it, let alone a 40' motorhome.

There is a sign posted going to hwy 1 around fort bragg/mendocino that says nothing over 36' in length.

Hope this helps.
