You should have no issues. When you get to the CA end road gets narrow and curvy. Watch for trucks! Don't be in hurry!

Just go slow. It is tight in places and curvy, but it is done by many every day, and beautiful area. Go at the speed that you have control of your rig.

The last few miles before Crescent City is curvy and has humongous Redwoods right at the edge of the asphalt. However, I've towed our 36-foot 5th wheel with no problems and no white knuckles.

Great road if you like twisty with a steep drop off on one side! [emoticon] Go slow and ignore tailgaters. It does get a little steep in spots too. If you haven't inspected the brakes on your FW in a while, now would be the time to do so...

Just so you know, hwy 199 is on the list of the most dangerous highways in the US. Myself, I'd do it again in a heartbeat if down that way.

Jeeze, it's just a country highway, if you want interstate conditions stay on the interstate highway system.

Don't mean to sound, well maybe I do. Born and raised in these mountains I would rather take roads like this any day compared to the dam interstates.

Big Rigs (18 wheelers) do it everyday. Go slow and enjoy it.

Just traveled from Grants Pass to Crescent City pulling a 37 foot fifth wheel with a dually. The trip was fine and although the road is a little narrow in places there is room to stay in your lane. In the redwoods close to Crescent City there was one turn with a redwood on the inside of the curve that obviously had been hit many times. I did cross the yellow line a little on that turn. Definitely an okay route with an RV.

Just pulled my TT through there again last week.
I know the tree your talking about, most of the missing area in the trunk was done with a chain saw so the bigger rigs wouldn't be scuffing it on the way by.

Just my opinion but 101 south of Cresent City is far worse than any part of 199
