I am towing my 40 foot, tri-axle, trailer with my Chevy diesel 4X4 from Vancouver BC to Las Vegas, and then down to Phoenix.
The trailer weighs approx. 15,000lbs. and I'm worried about steep mountain passes with poor road conditions. I have purchaced new winter tires, and tire chains, but with the trailer wheighing almost 3 times as much as my truck I want to avoid big mountain passes with windey corners.
Mapquest shows a route:
I-405 S toward BELLEVUE, then I-90 E via EXIT 11 toward SPOKANE, I-82 E via EXIT 110 toward YAKIMA, I-84 E via toward PENDLETON.
That would take me through Boise, then Salt Lake. and should take less than 25hrs.
If anyone knows any alternate routes that would be safer and easier for this trip please let me know. Also if anyone knows of good tourist spots or RV Parks feel free to leave a message. Tahnks
