U.S. Highway 50 meets all federal standards. I would not hesitate to take the portions I have not traveled.

That's a very picturesque route for a motorcycle, nice views in a car or a pickup truck. Route 50 from Winchester to Clarksburg, WV is a two lane road that has plenty of steep grades, switchbacks, etc. In a 38' rig the drive won't be that pleasurable.

Why don't you purchase the Rand McNally's trucker's atlas that will give you the info that you need, if a semi can do so can you. I use this when I'm going on a new route that I've not done yet.

That would be a tough drive with a 38' motorhome. Many hills, twists and turns. We just drove through some of in in WV in a car.

Nice drive, beautiful, but I would not want to do in towing or in a MH.

If you are worried about that road, don't go out West.

I have done that trip a million times in about everything with wheels. Last trip was in a 40ft DP with a toad. Its sometimes steep and crooked but I have never had a problem with it. I am booked in up there June 10 just waiting on word from private camp ground.....State camp sites still have a 14 day quarantine for people from out of state. But unless you are unsure of yourself and your rig I would go ahead, the scenery is worth it.

Sure wouldn’t want to take a pretty road because of climbs and switchbacks. Gotta keep on schedule!

Cheap shot.

The guy is planning ahead for safety and you make a crack like that. You of all people should know better.

Besides that, you already commented that the road is fine. Well which is it?
