Leaving Cortez Co. for destinations in the west, was just wondering if it is doable for us being what we are, a long bed Ford DRW towing a 14 ft. utility cargo trailer on a 42 inch extension which enables us good maneuverability for some very tight spots. Our truck camper is a Arctic Fox 992 on a 2012 Ford DRW 6.7 diesel.

Does the state restrict length? If not, I go. Did CA 4 once with a trailer. Interesting.

You should be OK however it will be a good pull with the load you have. The road was used originally for 18 wheelers hauling uranium ore so it is much wider than I expected and the switchbacks are not real tight.

I came down it in my Jeep Cherokee so years ago.

Yeah, should be fine...
I'm in a 10' Flatbed and while I wasn't towing at the time, I was surprised at just how easy it was compared to all the warnings.. just have to make one or two WIDE turns.. and since your there, don't forget the lookout point at the time. There's a dirt road, fairly nice at the time, although washboarded.. but slow n easy will get you there.. a little tight turning around but should be ok...

Muley Point is also a good free boondocking camping. The road to Muley point is somewhat washboard but worth the drive.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

I had to look up what it was, but this is what I found. Sounds like you should leave the camper and trailer at a campground or RV park.

https://bluffutah.org/mokey-dugway-muley-point/

The State of Utah recommends that only vehicles less than 28 feet and 10,000 pounds attempt to negotiate the dugway. The remainder of US-261 is paved.

We went up the Dugway a few years ago. You’ll be fine, just take your time. Road is fairly wide and in good shape.

Yep saw this and am asking here. My thoughts exactly but am on a one way trip here.
Truck is 26 feet and trailer is 19 foot and can easily fit in a 30 ft spot hehe!!

Thanks for your responses.

I unhooked my Jeep to climb up with my 2004 F350 dually diesel hauling my Lance 1181. Without difficulty. Disappointed that I had to hitch a ride back down to fetch the Jeep. It would have followed behind effortlessly. Just do it.
