Going To Death Valley

I will be traveling from Rachel NV to Stovepipe Wells Village CA and ask if anyone knows about Nevada 374, Daylight Pass Road CA and Scottys Castle Road CA. It looks fine on Google street view but does anyone know if my 32' Winnebago Aspect 30 motorhome will have any difficulty negotiating those roads? I will be traveling in November, 2013. Thanks,

This is an interesting question that I took as an exercise in 'OK how do you find this sort of information'. My first idea was find road type topographic information and there are such things but more for main routes. A USGS topographic map would probably give some information but then I though, what the heck just call the rangers office and ask Death Valley National Park Information on Hiking, Camping, and Activities I know for a fact they find folks where they should not be and occasionally dead from following a GPS on roads that they should not be on in a vehicle that can not do what it needs to do.

Can't speak for the first two but you shouldn't have any issues navigating Scotty's . Rode Death Valley 10 years back and it's decent enough road baring you don't do it during a bad winter. The lower valley floods and is impassable if it's bad enough as water runs into the valley from all the surrounding mountains.

Not totally sure about Nev 374. Seems like the many times I traveled on it was OK. Nov is a great time to travel in Death Valley. Drove my 34 ft motor home there hundreds of time on thankgiving when I lived in so Cal. Never had a problem.

Daylight pass road to beatty and the beatty cutoff that saves a few miles to stovepipe wells are both fairly wide decent two-lane. 267 into Scotty's from the NE is decent as well. No issues for virtually any motorhome.

You do have to be very cognizant of current road conditions. Desert roads are just asphalt on top of the ground. They buckle and wash out easily when it rains. The panamint valley road between 190 and Trona is currently washed out and I believe 190 east of the hotel and 178 between Pahrump and DVNP are washed out as well. Check with the NHP or CHP for the real info. Washouts out here make for looooong detours.
