Highway 101

We have been considering adding a trip through Washington and down the Oregon coast on highway 101 after spending a week in the Okanagan.

I've read the highway is very tricky, however, but we are only pulling a 24 foot trailer and we are used to driving the Alaska Highway, which is also narrow and twisty at points.

Has anyone taken this route? How was it?

I have traveled on a major portion of it in Wasington and Oregon with a 28' trailer and never had a problem. I'm not sure what would be tricky about the route. The remote parts are just a two-way highway. Some parts are curvy but nothing that should be a problem.

You will be fine. I've made the full trip two times now and seen some biggun's driving fine there. 101 is also the lifeline road to the Oly Pen so all the long tree hauling and delivery trucks use it. Well paved and no riddled with bumps. This time last year was when we were there last.
No fear for you and it's a gorgeous place!
If you go up to Port Angeles, WA consider a night or two at Salt Creek Recreation Area. You can book online and they have some walk up only places too.

The best Salmon fishing is at Winchester Bay and you can fish from shore easily and catch them as long as your arm. Bring a big net with you and there's great crabbing right in the bay at the back end of your RV. An outstanding place to stay is at Winchester Bay RV Resort, this one gets 5 stars.

We have never taken the trailer across the border, I am hoping to get down to the Oregon Coast.
Most my friends have been down. The husband had a bad experience going across the line when he was younger meeting some friends down in New Mexico.
