Wolfcreek pass is not a problem, 4 lanes, great new road, and the grades are rather modest, 6% I think. Where are you staying in Durango?

I would ride north from Durango to Silverton then onto Ouray, then head SW to Telluride and continue to finish the loop. From Ouray back to Durango is a nice relatively flat ride. Most interesting part is from Silverton to Ouray. Be sure to take some time in both cities.

We also enjoy the Bar D cowboy show in Durango.

We are doing the very same triip in August. Durango for a few days, then Ouray for a few. Looking forward to a week in the high altitudes. Will let you all know how the Jeep trails are doing. Some of them are still closed due to ice or snow. One of the reasons we chose August. Will also be taking the Durango-Silverton steam railway. Looking forward to the trip.

Thats awesome. I'm leaving Tuesday headed to Telluride then onto Jackson to pick up friends then on to Pinedale, Wy for a backpacking trip. I'm in a Redhawks 26xd and this will be my first real long trip. A little nervous but excited too!

I'm happy to say that the rig performed quite well on our trip to Durango. Wolf Creek Pass was a challenge but I was able to maintain 35 mph through the toughest grades near the summit. With a full load in the camper and towing a Jeep Wrangler, I'm pleased with how she performed. I left my friend pulling a 5er with his Powerstroke and stayed with my other buddy pulling a 5er (16lbs) with his Cummins. I had some friends drive the jeep back and going over the pass without a toad was incredibly easy. I have never been a Ford fan but I have to say I am impressed with the V10. Heading to Buena Vista this weekend pulling the Jeep, then off on an 800+ mile trip to ND the following week. One other thing, I have been very unhappy with the tankless water heater (mostly boondocking), but we had 4 people in the camper for 4 days and I have to say it worked quite well using city water with good pressure. As long as I have an unlimited water supply and decent pressure it works like a champ.
