BTW, if you have hookups where you are going you won’t need a lot of water in your fresh water tank…….water is ~8 lbs per gallon….

Thanks phil I appreciate your advice. We are not towing and I will be careful of weight and was already studying up on the gear management so I’ll take all that into consideration thanks so much and by the way were 33 feet… So you’ve eased my mind a bit thanks again.

It is really hard to say without knowing the GVW, horsepower, and how you are going to load the MotorHome. Weight is a big deal for a gas coach. So I assume you have a larger Ford or Chevy engine and the coach is around 34 ft long. A coach larger than that might challenge the engine.

I don’t think the elevation would stop me as long as I was careful of my weight limit and I managed the gears appropriately. Towing a vehicle might be an issue if there were no auxiliary brakes on the tow vehicle to help manage speed downhill.

Message Body : my Winnebago brave is 15 years old with 27000 miles – it was owned by my parents and taken very good care of – however, Dad is very concerned that we won’t be successful taking the trip we are planning to Lake City Co – some of the route is at or above 13000 feet. We are gas powered – should we go – does anyone have a tried and true route in the motor home vs a car trip – Any advice?
