Fort Worth to Pagosa Springs, CO?
 
From Amarillo:

(In a 37' Entegra pulling Chevy Colorado).

Thanks!

Really depends on the Mission - what you enjoy - Both work, just think it might be Fun to come up from the South, as I have not done that Route Before.

A few years back I did the I-40 over to Santa Fe and spent the night there. Then 84 up to Pagosa. The route wasn't an issue. You'll climb and twist and turns with minimal shoulders. Nothing major. Can't say it's the best but that's the way I'll travel again if going that way.

I agree with Dale. We've driven 84 a number of times and it's not a bad drive. From Chama north the road is a bit winding and shoulderless 2 lane but no worse than a lot of other roads in NM and CO. St Francis Ave through Santa Fe is very busy but it's a wide street. You could go out to the 599 bypass but would take you about 10-12 miles out of the way. There's a great RV park near 599 and I40 named Santa Fe Skies if you are looking for a place to stay around there.

285/84 from Santa Fe is a very easy, beautiful drive for any size RV. A couple of Corp of Engr parks along the way. We like Abiquiu.

160 from north of Pagosa to South Fork.... you'll have Wolf Creek Pass into Pagosa which is very doable but it's a biggie. Read up on it.

Hope you're planning on doing some soaking in the awesome springs at Pagosa. Immaculate concrete small pools of varying temperatures overlooking town and the river. We always pack a small cooler and spend a few hours relaxing. They have a nice locker room and showers.

I agree with taking the US 84 route. We love COE campgrounds and stay in them as often as possible on our trips. We have stayed at Abiqquiu Lake, but like Heron Lake State Park even better ($14/night for W/E sites with the park pass included).
