I know the OP never said what Redwoods he was interested in. Just to illustrate the scale, it is about 550 miles from Sequoia National Park to Redwood National and State Park. There are many Sequoia/Redwood Forests in between as mentioned above. I have been to many of them over the years but I still think the area by Humboldt is the prettiest.

Two thumbs up for Ancient Redwoods! Very nice and great access to old growth forest.

If things work out we will be bumping around California for about 3 months starting in December. I have yet to fill in all the blanks between New Years Day in Pasadena and arriving in Indian Wells on 2/27.

I took a look at Weather.com and for someone who avoids snow and mountains, it looks doable.

What is the weather really like in January and February in Redcrest, CA?

With any luck it is wet, wet, wet. The storms usually roll in and work their way down the coast. The bigger the storm, the farther down the coast they get. It's why those Redwoods have lush undergrowth. Usually does not get down to freezing (35-55). Should be after the fire season. Bring your rain suit and boots.

Klamath Camper Corral. We've stayed there many times. George and his family live on site and are great!

Rain is not a problem, seems to follow us on our journeys.

Seeing the coastal redwoods in the rain is great -- the smell of the forest is very intense, and the colors deepen, too. I'd recommend the James Irvine trail at Prairie Creek.

If you are feeling adventurous, combine a winter trip to the coastal redwoods with a winter trip to the Sequoias. (It is a two day drive to get from one to the other.)

Maybe stay in Three Rivers (Sequoia RV Ranch) and then drive your non-RV vehicle up to Giant Forest. Seeing the Sequoias in the snow is just magical. (Three Rivers is below the snow-line.) It's about a 45 minute drive each way.

If you can find snowshoes to rent (or bring your own), you can spend the whole day (or two!) wandering amongst the silent giants in Congress Grove.

We have done exactly that several times -- really fun. Just take it slow till you are accustomed to the altitude.

Snowshoes?

It sounds funny, but it looks pretty good in person! These Sequoias are in Freeman Grove, a fair distance south of Congress Grove. But you get the idea -- the world's biggest trees, with no one else around for miles and miles. Absolutely silent:

I should add that in that shot, DW is intentionally lifting her snowshoe so that it can be seen. We don't actually walk around with our shoes in the air. Snowshoeing is exactly like hiking -- not a bit difficult, from a technical perspective. But it is great exercise, especially in deep soft snow at high altitude.

I just drove from Point Arena to Stewart’s Point in NORCAL yesterday. It’s an amazing drive along CA 1. While 1 is fine, getting there can be challenging for anything towed since this is a very rural and remote area, and many of the roads are very narrow and twisty, and some have sections without pavement. These are usually marked “no trucks or trailers recommended” and you should believe them.

'Curvy' is in the eye of the beholder or the tow vehicle First Officer in this case. Heading up there in two weeks - can't wait!

If you’re looking for Redwoods a bit further south, check out the town of Felton, CA. It’s a few miles from Santa Cruz. Felton has three RV parks. We stayed at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort a few weeks back and had a nice time. The RV park is small and sites are close together, but nice.
