Travel From Nevada to Oregon

Has anyone taken highway 140 from Nevada to Oregon? We will be pulling our 40' fifth wheel and want to make sure it is a decent road.

Thank you in advance for your help.

On google maps it looks like a straight as an arrow 2 lane road.

It's a nice trip. (We live in northern NV so we're biased)

No traffic (at least between Winnemucca and Lakeview OR, and as I recall, one curvy section I think about 5 miles long with some 7-8% grade. Last I heard there was fuel at Denio Junction, but check beforehand if that's an issue.

The scenery is some of the best in the Great Basin, and there are tons of critters out there to watch out for.

I found this video on You Tube, of a trip starting at Denio Junction and heading westbound:

It is an okay road except around the Doherty Slide area. Road sorta rough and curvy, shoulder narrow, it is totally doable. I can't recall the length of the grade maybe 5 miles. The dropoff is on the other side of the road in case that makes you nervous. Watch for fallen rock on road.

Fuel may be available in Adel also but the station may have closed since the last time I was over the road.

It's a swell road and there is a free campground with warm springs pool and shower. Also a Sapphire mine , maybe only open in the summer near the top..Not a bad grade, I've been on worse.

I think the mine is a do it yourself dig for opals. There's a day fee to dig, they use a front loader to scoop out a chunk of dirt for you to search through. Kinda cool. Either way, it's a great trip. Beautiful. Maybe stop at Spencer hot springs for a soak..
