Well, it depends on what part of No Ca you are talking about. Hwy 1 north of San Francisco is NOT recommended for bigger rigs. We mistakenly went north from SF on Hwy 1 towing a 38' 5'r, never again. Sharp switchbacks and narrow road, you will be holding up traffic and will get many one finger salutes. Apparently we missed the sign that said over 35' NOT recommended. Check the Cal Trans website for this road north of SF, not a good idea. Stay in an rv park and drive it in the toad. Beautiful drive, just not in the rv

North of San Francisco I'd strongly suggest traveling one Hwy 101 and taking your tow car to the coast.

Santa Rosa to Bodega Bay to Fort Bragg to Willits, yep. Rest is doable, but better in the dinghy. If you consider 1 south of SF, No Cal, likewise, Monterrey to Cambria is better in a car. Likewise, we park the motorhome on 101 and take the Honda to the coast.
