      Rich & Pat Tardell 3 hours ago Slow down, if you're tired and it's too much work, you're moving too often for your comfort level.  And try thinking about your trailer as your "Home", not a vacation trip.  Find a campground/RV park within reasonable driving distance of your pr...  more

      wannabervin 7 hours ago 40 years!  Downsizing/decluttering must have been a bear.  We were 33 yrs in our house and that was overwhelming.  Looking back, I can't believe we did it,

      LarandSus August 15 We drove it on our car a couple months ago. Wouldn't want to with the RV but DH thinks it'd be ok. No way would I during the season where there was danger of ice or snow on the road. Do you know where the name of the road came from?

        Michael&Marilyn August 15 It cost a million a mile to construct.
      • Bill & Marian
        LarandSus August 15 The other answer is that a local wouldn't drive it in winter if you paid them a million dollars.
    • Bill & Marian
      Larry and Tammi Swyers August 15 Its a serious drive with a trailer of any type. But very doable. Some steep areas with tight turns. If heights bother you may reconsider
    • Bill & Marian
      SouthParkSteve August 15 I did it as a relative newbie towing a 24' travel trailer.  As long as you take your time and use the turnouts (you will want to stop and take pictures anyway....) so that others can pass you, it is really not that difficult.....

      Robbie & Alice August 16 LarandSus, I attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, and home town was in Aspen.  I drove those passes many times in the winter in  a passenger car.  Later years, driving an RV over them was easy....I also drove semi trucks as a young man.

      John & MK Harpel August 16 No, no, no. Barely able in car or pickup. Did it once in a ford van. Found another way back. But hey, if you’re immune to stress and have zero fear of heights get someone to hold your beer and give it a shot.
