You can travel Hwy 1 north, you do not have to take 101. Hwy 1 has some tight corners but is traveled all the time by people pulling trailers, in motorhomes etc. You have to pay attention when on this hwy. If the tight corners and sometimes narrow lanes bother you then take 101, myself i don't have a problem with 1. Hwy 1 connects to 101 and 101 goes to Oregon.

I grew up in the area and have traveled that route many times. Can you drive an MH on the road, sure, but I wouldn’t want to. Two reasons. There are nice straight (ok, semi straight sections), but there are a great many tight turns that will require some added caution while making and you will likely have 14 cars stacked up behind you. This leads me to the second reason. There are very few and very far apart turnouts on the south to north routes. The ocean and the beauty are on the other side of the road. Pulling across 1, finding a safe place to park and then getting back on the road is daunting. You will miss a lot of the stops and views. But it is doable with patience.

Have traveled north to south on CA 1 from where it diverts from 101 at Leggett down to Petaluma. It is a wonderful drive with Bodega Bay, Fort Ross, Mendocino, and Ft. Bragg. I would travel south again from Leggett with our 29 ft. Trek motorhome, but I would not recommend doing it from the south after Ft. Bragg. Leggett to Westport involves 10 mph turns and you would be going uphill. Head inland from Ft. Bragg on hwy 20.

Relax, be safe, drive defensively and you will have a great time and see some beautiful sights.
