Is Colorado 114 from Sillsville to Saguache OK for a 35' motorhome towing a car?

I have to admit I've never heard of "Sillsville" but I have towed from Gunnison to Saguache several times. I consider it one of the easier passes in Colorado. From US 50 to the the pass you go through a very pretty canyon--twisting roads but no problems for RVs. The trip down the pass toward Saguache is a long straight descent, not too steep. It is a good route.

HHhnnnnnn Gonna watch this one. I do not know the area was thinking of taking this as opposed to Monarch on way to CaƱonCity. But understand it adds about 50 mi. (small TC)

We have driven 114 to and from Gunnison many times. Some turns but it is so easy that even I can drive it, and I am a big sissy when it comes to mountain driving.

Had to look up Sillsville and finally found it on a topo map.

CO 114 is one of the easiest ways across the Continental Divide in Colorado.

Thanks all for your input. I found this to be an easy pass, too. It should be mentioned, though, that there are no shoulders, and no pull-outs. Traffic was light early on Saturday, so no tailgaters. The first 20 miles going south are very curvy.
