There's no easy way to get from here (Illinois) to there....even with the mountains to contend with.
Any way you go will have it's share of mountains to deal with.
South to I40 and across to Cali then north may be the easiest, but way long.
The best way I've found has been thru SLC, up to Boise and to the Dalles, and West from there. I wasn't towing though.

Take 80 all the way through to Utah. Just after Evanston,WY, take 84 northwest. It merges with 15 for a while then splits off towards Boise. Just stay on 84 all the way to Portland.

I agree with bradford3454 above. Just take it slow going into SLC.

The suggested route is the best. Goes through the Columbia River Gorge very scenic and easy driving. Biggest challenge you will have is the traffic in Portland. Almost any time of the day but rush hours are terrible.
