Which bridge from OR Hwy. 84 to WA Hwy. 14

Besides the 205 bridge from Oregon to Washington Hwy. 14, What bridges are appropriate for our Tundra truck pulling our travel trailer? We want to head east but also want to be able to visit a few wineries in the gorge on the WA side.
Also, how do you feel about driving Hwy. 14 versus Hwy. 84? Thanks!

One of the bridges is a toll....
84 is a freeway, 14. 2 lane hyway. Quite a bit to see.

Bridge of the Gods at Cascade Locks (toll, 50/axle (?)), The Dalles Bridge, Biggs Jct Bridge and I-84 Bridge at Umitilla are good to go. Do not try the Hood River Bridge as lane width it 9'3"

You can also drive east from Vancouver on Hwy 14. The tunnels are marked about 12"4" but it is on the very edge. You can go through but you need to tread lightly.

You've got a small RV. Any bridge is good - if using the Hood River Bridge turn your mirrors inward. Any secondary highway is good.

Great information! We have driven 84 many time but wanted a change. The tunnels are a bit concerning.

Keep in mind that 13’ - 6” semis run that highway all the time.

Besides the Glenn Jackson (I205) your next best choice is probably Biggs (US97). The other bridges are all doable. Most of the wineries are farther east closer to US97. WA14 gets a lot of truck traffic, but it a lot more hilly.

Dalles or Biggs!! As stated, no to Hood River, narrow, white knuckle when meeting other rvs or trucks!! Tunnels are mostly to east of the Dalles, and are no problem for rvs. 14 is a good 2 lane with a lot of truck traffic at times. More wineries to the east!!

How far east are you going?

For example near Walla Walla there are many wineries.

Yakima and Benton county have also many wineries.

I like WA-14 but have not done it in an RV. When going from the Walla Walla area to the Washington coast I like US-12 which shorter and less traffic.

Thank you so much for these replies. It looks like we may stay in Plymouth the first night and then visit a few wineries in Walla Walla. Thanks!

The Hood River Bridge is a little narrow, have not used it for a few years but took small MHs and small TTs over it in the past. There is a winery near the WA side.The Dalles bridge is easy and there are wineries nearby. Near Lyle, on my uncles old ranch, is a very good winery (Syncline), with and they use all organic grown grapes.
