Nononono! No RV's on the beartooth! you'll scare yourself to death. Pi!! off everyone for 3 miles behind you, and possibly end up flying 2000 feet into the river when the brakes go up in smoke.

Plus it won't be any fun at all. Drive a car. or a motorcycle. Not the RV.

Beartooth on 21 June 2011...1st day of Summer.





And I would strongly advise against attempting it in ANY RV.

X5, just the amount of wear and tear on the RV is enough reason for me. Also, on the way up from the YNP side is a fire tower, stop and climb it if you can. It was closed when we were there (2010) for repairs.

I have driven the Beartooth wit a 35' motorhome and toad twice. Not a big issue for me. Unless one is very experienced in mountain driving I would say this is not the place to learn.

No question, the park is a real treasure and should be seen by everyone. We were there a couple of yrs. ago and stayed at Fishing Bridge. It was not a good experience. When we booked the stay we were told it was the only full hookup site in the park. When we arrived we were told that they had turned off the elect thru out the camp ground. Without the hook in hook up it was little better than a parking lot. So, check with the park service before springing for "full hookup".

This is a great link by RVcruzer to driving an RV on different routes in Yellowstone.

Nice photos, but they are Glacier NP, not Yellowstone.
