Driving from W. Yellowstone to Estes Park in a Class C with a Toad

I'm not sure if the Class C motorhome or the General Discussion is the right place for this thread. However, I think the answer to my question might involve the kind of motorhome we have so I place it here. If the moderator thinks the General Discussion is the better place, please move it.

We'll be in West Yellowstone National Park and will be driving to Estes Park in Colorado. We have two possible routes with one route taking us through Grand Teton National Park and then onto more major roads (US 191, US 287, US 89) until we reach Riverton as an intermediate stop.

We've got the Class C motorhome and will be towing a Jeep Wrangler. Are there any issues driving through Grand Teton National Park that would make us change our minds on this route?

I just made that trip in an Axis(E-450). Cody to Fishing Bridge down to Dubois then to Fort Collins. The E-450 was great. Many RV4Rents. You should do well. Have fun and safe travels.

We did the Rawlins 287, Dubois, 26 Grand Teton, up to Yellowstone drive last summer, and while the northern part of the drive is nice, that section of road north of Rawlins is a whole lot of nothing with the occasional hill, make sure you have a full tank of gas when you leave Dubois as there are few stops for fuel between there and Rawlins and the ones that are there have insanely high fuel prices. My biggest issue on that section of road were all the idiots pulling 5th wheels that thought they had to drive 85+ mph, and the cross winds.


p.s. I don't know what RV option are in Riverton, though we did spend a few nights at a very nice place just south of Dubois by the name of the Longhorn Ranch RV park, nice water front spaces on a small river, widely spaced, etc.

Two years ago we did Jackson to Cheyenne so it's similar to what you will be doing. I would take take 191 in West Yellowstone and follow it to Jackson and stay on it until you get to Rock Springs where you can get on I-80.

Route 191 is not the fastest way, but you do pass through some beautiful country that way. You pass through some pretty neat towns too. We also love the desolation of I-80 in WY.

Have a safe trip.

We did that rip last year in our MBS Sprinter towing a Jeep. Stayed overnight in Wyoming and then went from Cheyenne to Estes Park. You should have no problem other than the “whole lot of nothing” driving through Wyoming. Enjoy the drive.
