Drive north from Vancouver up the Coquihalla to Kamloops
We are heading to Banff this July and are looking at the route options. We are looking to head to Alberta relatively quickly so not looking for scenic drives through BC. Looking at the Coquihalla but certainly have concerns on the uphill grades. We are driving a 2004 Itasca Suncruiser 33V on a workhorse chassis. will also be towing a mazda 3 on a tow dolly. Would probably plan to offload the car and have the DW drive it behind through to at least the summit or all the way to Merritt.
Has anyone driven north up the Coquihalla with a gasser and would you recommend doing it. Would plan to overnight in Hope and then get out early (6 AM) to hit it before traffic and any heat of the day.

Do it all the time, no worries ! ( Owned a 36' gasser till just recently ).
Leave the towed hooked up. You'll likely be in the slow lane with the trucks in 1st gear on the snowshed hill, but will have no problems with the rest of the highway.
