Very suitable. Once you get to where I live.. and north.. it's a fantastic drive. I'm in the wine country on 101.. once you get there.. it's grapes for quite a while.. Then, the giant redwoods and some great state parks to stay at and explore the huge beauties. As 101 goes further north, it gets closer to the coast and there are some fantastic state parks up in the north before you hit Oregon... Go for it....

The 101 is a highway, a beautiful drive, accommodates large vehicles, and should be trouble free for the RVer. It has fewer large fueling stops than major routes like the 5 or even the 99. But with a little planning, like beginning to look for fuel when at the 1/2 mark takes care of that worry. Many people confuse the 101 with the 1. The 1 (one) is a scenic drive, with cliffs and tight turns, beach traffic and narrow lanes.
Enjoy, and Happy Trails.

It's quite a way from 101 to Seattle - the Olympic mountains are kinda in the way. Beautiful trip all the way round, though. If you do go all the way to the north coast of Washington, you'll probably end up on a ferry to get back to the mainland. There's an excellent web-site for the ferry system at
