Sacramento to South Lake Tahoe

I will be traveling from Sacramento to South Lake Tahoe in late May. Was looking at hwy 50 and wanted to ask if anyone knows this road. I will be in a 45' Entegra pulling a tow. Any comments/recommendations is greatly appreciated.

Part of it is 2 lane but has passing lanes, if during the week there will not be a lot of traffic.

You won't have any issues with your motorhome on Hwy 50. It's all uphill. Try to avoid it on Fri - Sun. & 3-day weekends. Everyone is going & coming at that time.

Downshift, floor it, and go.

88 is also a good route, just have to turn left through Hope Valley to Tahoe. Used to pull fifth wheels up that way from off stockton area to Markleeville area.

88 has Carson Pass to get through. It's a biggie if I recall. Check it out first.

I was stopped by a CHP once on 50, he wanted to know how my truck was able to pull the 5th wheel i was towing up the hill at the speed limit. He was curious as he was getting ready to buy a new truck. It was over 20 years ago and it was a 97 F250 that was chipped.

You will be fine on 50, do it regularly with a 34' mg with jeep toad. All uphill to Echo summit then 3 mile rather steep downhill then you are in Meyers and South Lake Tahoe.
