I-5 up by Seattle is a bad one too. We were bouncing so bad the wife made me pull over so she could put on a sports bra!

I recently got lost on our way home from a campsite in Columbia County (NY) - Wound up on a road called "Farmer Brown Rd" - Should have been my first clue. The 1 lane, winding twisting, narrowing road should have been my second clue but, we were following GPS which indicated we were just 1 turn away from being back on a main road and it was only another 1/4 mile BUT - The bright orange road sign indicating "Bridge Out 500 feet" forced a sudden sick feeling upon me!

My wife had to walk behind the camper in the pouring rain, as I backed up nearly a mile to a turn around that was JUST barely large enough to maneuver into.

Needless to say she was NOT a happy camper!

Other than that, I haven't had too many bad road experiences!

C'mon.. Celebrate New Englands frost heaves ( that never leave)
I could nominate the Sebomook road but if you are not from away you know better than take an RV on that.

The Golden Road in Maine is getting rough too.

My brother once took his 24' Jayco down snowmobile trail # 5 in Canaan, NH, so that has to be right up there. It took us 2 jacks, a ton of boards, and some creative thinking to get him over one particularly rocky section as it was impossible to back up or turn around.

The lesson here is don't always go where your GPS tells you to go!

I-22, US 78, I-55 through Memphis and West Memphis. Giant potholes and bouncing on the bridges!

Is the Cassiar Highway in BC still as bad as it was in the 80's/90's? Even in the early 90s the washboard on that "road" would make your car go sideways off the road towards the ditch. Only been on it in a car as a kid, but a family friend with a motorcoach informed us that it was horrendous up into the late 90s at least.

It's still that bad? I haven't been on it since '99 and back then it would make my dad's short wheel base 4x4 bounce all over the place, we all hated that stretch of I-5.

as of 2012 it was fine. But slow. Lots of construction going on.. It was a splendid road.

Now the Gold Camp out of Hyder... is another story

In central California highway 1/208 from Leggtt west to Fort Bragg it's extremely twisty with no shoulder actually quite dangerous. If you want to go to Mendocino the best approach is taking Cloverdale from the 101 and go up to Mendonico.
