i know they repaved the pass, but can someone tell me about the grade percentage and length of the grades coming from beuna vista to taylor reservoir. we have a 33 foot gas motorhome towing a jeep. don't want to beat up the rv climbing long grades. thanks

Not sure how to answer, but it's a 2 lane pass. My last trip was several years ago in a 5er. Nothing to pucker up about, but I was very respectful of the decent and gearing down.

You can take Hw 50 to 135 and avoid the pass if you're worried.

Went over it last summer and there’s nothing really steep… but it’s over 12,000’ which makes a gas engine struggle. If you’re worried about it, drive the jeep separately.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
