Hi we are traveling from Salt Lake City to Reno Nevada in a 34 foot motor home. We r pulling our car on a dolly. The motor home is an older one so my husband is very worried about hills/steep inclines. Any suggestion in a flatter route . One is showing us just 80 the whole way. Another shows us 50 to 80. Any suggestions for best rv route? Thx so much.

As I said earlier I 80 should be easy drive and I have driven a big part of it from east and west.

Take I80. Easy run I have done it several times.
Biggest hill WB is Park City-Salt Lake, but the road is engineered for trucks/ large vehicles. Couple of hills near Elko, but, again it's set up for large vehicles. If you're not needing fuel or ready to stop in Winnemucca, then fuel up in Fernley, fuel is much cheaper than in Reno.
50 is known as the loneliest Road In America, and has a hill near Austin that isn't all that "friendly".
