We are traveling south on I-25 in New Mexico from Socorro to Tucson. I can go through Las Cruces to I-10, or I can save almost 50 miles by taking NM-26 from Hatch to Deming. I use the Trucker's atlas and they don't show this as a trucker's route, but when I look on Google Earth it looks like a good road for a 42' motor home. Has anyone taken NM-26 in a big rig? Thanks....

I'm from Las Cruces - absolutely nothing wrong with 26 between Hatch and Deming - and the Mountain Directory has no warnings on it, either.

Use it all the time. Good road with light traffic. Only drawback is it is two lane, dead straight most of the way. USE YOUR HEADLIGHTS!

I just drove it Friday as I have relatives in Deming. Worst issue will be Semis traveling slow pulling hills and few places to pass safely. One slow down area at Nutt to 55MPH & NM State Patrol does work the highway as does the Deming police on their end. The travel plaza in Hatch has some really good Burritos, DEF at the truck pumps, & a free dump station.

I always use the Hatch route. BTW, Hatch chilies are the best anywhere. If you go through there Thurs-Sunday stop in to Sparky's restaurant.
