I am hoping for some advice from all the seasoned pros out there!
My boyfriend, dog, and I are moving from the west coast (Vancouver) to the east (Ottawa, Canada). We will be making the drive from mid to late December in a 1998 Toyota Camry pulling a fully loaded UHaul trailer. We are staying within our towing capacity (2000lbs) but will be right on the edge of this.
Given the weight of the trailer we would like to avoid hiways that are going to be a challenge for our car to get up, and want to avoid too much of a snow risk to keep things as safe as possible.
We are willing to travel south but don't want to go so far south as to add too much time or cost to our trip.
Any advice on route (mainly for the western portion/mountains) would be greatly appreciated
