Did it in 2015. Km 131 on the right ( headed north) is a great spot to overnight. Showers and wi fi at Eagle plaine and a camp. Carry a tire patching kit that uses plugs. Just in case.

Are you going all the way up to Tuktoyaktuk?

We are a couple of weeks behind you.

Aim is to get to Tuk provided the road condition is reasonable. My Class A doesn't like too much washboard and pothole

Check this article from CBC, Tuktoyaktuk mayor says little in place for tourists travelling new highway

"Although the road is under a weight limit restriction of 5,000 kg after it was shut down for nearly three weeks in May, Gruben says there are still RVs and campers rolling in. Some are overweight."

Note: 5,000 kg = 11,022 lbs

It's just for the new Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk road.

A friend drove to Tuk today. She said the road is good although there are some soft spots.
