Moki Dugway w/ TT

The road to it from Blanding is closed for construction so if one wants to camp up there you would have to drive up the switchbacks. I've driven down it in my pickup and it was a yawn. I'm sure I can tow our 21' TT up it without a problem. It can't be worse than backing into our driveway at home. That's a Cat III approach to minimums with a severe crosswind! Anybody else done this?

RE: Moki Dugway


It is gravel. To find out if you are comfortable, go to Goose Necks SP Campground, unhook and check it out for yourself. GN and MD are near each other.

I have no doubt that I can make the hairpins -
I just don't want a ticket from some officious LEO.

I think the question should be.... are you putting others in jeopardy or just yourself?

I wouldn't want to meet you on the way up or down driving my truck.

Have you driven it? Except for the switchbacks there's plenty of room for passing.

Excerpt: It's a relatively easy gravel road to drive, for the driver, but if you're the passenger, sitting on the edge and your driver is enjoying the view... Well, it can be more of thrill ride. The State of Utah recommends that only vehicles less than 28 feet in length and 10,000 pounds in weight attempt to negotiate this steep (11% grade), narrow and winding road. Most vehicles can travel the route safely. Caution is advised for motor homes or vehicles pulling trailers. There are no facilities along the Moki Dugway stretch. The road is wide enough to easily accommodate the passage of vehicles, but there are no guard-rails.

https://www.dangerousroads.org/north...ugway-usa.html

As long as you have a truck that will handle the grade while towing, the road shouldn'r be a problem.

We’ve been up and down it a number of times. It’s a great ride.

I just figured that since you have driven it too but still asked about taking a trailer up or down you had some doubts or wanted some encouragement.

You’re right about the switchbacks.

I'm a cheapskate - I just don't want to get busted.
With our 21' ORV and Tremor it will be casual.
