#2 from Montana to Idaho too crazy?

I want to take my 45' MH with toad from northwest Montana through Glacier National Park on the #2 to Idaho. I'm very confident behind the wheel and my rig can turn on a dime. I'm I crazy?

JMHO: I did travel towing a fiver the #2 years ago , can't think of anything that would be an issue, on the #2 .

BUT !!!!! Depending where you're heading in MT. Stay off the 49 .
there is a section marked no trailers

That road you'll be able to read your toad's rear license plate.

US 2 is fine for your rig. I have driven from Western Washington as far east as Browning Mt.
Class A 39 ft with toad.

We've driven Hwy 2 from Washington to Michigan.... a wonderful drive with no issues. However, Hwy 2 doesn't go 'through' Glacier. It runs along the bottom edge.

We did this same trip a ouple of years ago, 35' gas with a tow dolly. I actually prefer it over the freeways.

Have fun.

I did that same trip last summer from Glacier N.P. on Rt.2 to Coeur d'Alene, ID and I loved it. I had no problems in my 43'. Mostly quiet rd. and it's a scenic drive.
