I'd agree with most of the others, it is driveable in an RV dependent on the capabilities of the rig and experience/skill of the driver. Going downhill and other drivers would be my biggest concerns. But I would much rather drive that road in a tow car and be able to enjoy the fantastic scenery.

Nearly anywhere you go the expertise of the driver and navigator is a factor!

There is a very nice campground just before there called Perry’s RV Park and Campground in Red Lodge. Stay there overnight and then hit the road the next day and drive all the way into Cooke City, then turn around and head back. The next day you can drive around the east side to Cody WY and head into the park that way. Yes it’s the long way around, but the Beartooth hwy is not to be missed!
You can stay in Red Lodge or Cody (which has several campgrounds), Cody has a number of worth while attractions like the Buffalo Bill Center, Old Trail Town, and the Rodeo. Take a day and drive a loop of the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph Scenic Byway.

Safe travels!

Its narrow. Getting up and down is not the problem, not even the turns are.

Its getting along with other vehicles that is the problem. Some drives will be 10 feet away from the edge of the downside pavement, can't move over to the edge, just can't. Cutting the switchbacks is common, comming into your side of the roadway. Two wide body MH's will have a hard time passing.

The thing to remember is that you are not alone Some people are truly terrified of driving in the mountains and don't know it until they are there. Even motorcycle drivers are not exempt.

Some people just lose "it" in the face of fear. It can be dangerous.

In a smaller vehicle you have more control and more options and more places to put you vehicle.

I found Beartooth harder to drive, since they added guardrails. It made the road much narrower. But still do able.
