In a couple of weeks we're considering leaving on an RV trip up through Eastern Oregon area.

Anybody have any road condition info on Hwy.97 from Weed to Klamath Falls?

We've never been through that way thought we'd try this time.

We're a 40' diesel with a toad.

Thanks!

Should be a pretty easy ride. 97 is a good highway. I travel it with a fifth wheel with no problems at all.

Hwy 97 is a typical two lane road that follows the railroad thru the mountains. We did it with a 45' plus toad and had no problems. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to really enjoy the scenery and stops along the way. I assume you're going to continue on 97 to see Crater Lake. If not, you should.....Dennis

When we go south that the way we go, never had problem other than the normal maintenance.no big hills or hard pulls.
And it is a much more relaxed drive than I-5

Yes. Hiway 97 is a great road. I drive it at least once a year and avoid Interstate 5 at all costs.

97 is great 2 lane road. Does not have all the hills - up/down that I5 has.
