Google Maps gives 3 routes & are pretty much close in miles.

1. (The easiest in our opinion) - 431 miles - 395/139/39 to Klamath Falls, OR then 140 to White City, OR; I-5 a short distance to 199

2. 415 miles - 395/44/89/I-5/199

3. 409 miles - 395/44 to Old Station/Redding then 299. 299 has too many curves for us.

We are looking at option 1. Are you picking up 139 in Susanville or Canby (395N to Alturas, then 299 to 139). Reason I ask, is Trucker Atlas does not outline a portion of 139 around Eagle Lake and wanted to make sure ok for a 43' class A plus tow. Thanks!

Agree with Two Gypsies in the order they suggest. Done all three although not with our motorhome. Did the 299 route from Crescent City to Reno last year with the MH, it's, IMO, the prettiest drive but definitely steep and curvy at times.

IMO I would take the opt. 3, 395,44,299,101, much nicer roads and very beautiful drive. You will be more refreshed at the end of the trip and ready for a cocktail. Happy travels.

We have done option 1 Fifth wheel towing a boat. NEVER again.
Option 4 is 395/44/89/I-5/42/101S in Bandon.

Just curious... why not Option 1?

Your Option 4 is almost 200 miles longer.

We did 139 at Susanville to Adin to Canby to Tule Lake to Klamath Falls.

I apologize. I meant Option 2. And I misread 199 as 299.


Yes, Option 4 is 200 miles longer but, as we are retired, miles don't matter to us. It is a beautiful easy drive.

Except for the 15 - 20 mile stretch before dropping into Crescent City.

The funny thing about Whisky Town is all the hungover people staggering around on a Sunday morning. Along one of the more epic motorcycle roads I've taken.

In an RV? I dunno. Might consider 20, which is glorious in parts, to the 101. Easy run in an RV and provides for a side trip through Humboldt, which is magnificent. If you have a sense of irony, you don't want to miss the Paul Bunyan and Babe statues. Eureka is a great town for an overnight stop, it's one of those kickin little Cali towns, you know the type. Restaurants and shops and improbably beautiful people and all. Take the run to the state line early in the morning, the elk are as thick as squirrels.

I do like Stranger's route, will add, 199 is a great road. It is, to cannabis, as 128 is to wine, if that's your bag, and the redwood forest at the end is heartbreakingly beautiful, and smells great besides. Get your redwood fix. But that part of the Oregon coast on Stranger's preferred route will haunt your dreams. That needs to be on your bucket list too. Pick a bucket!
