Looking for any insight as to best routes for driving a motorhome from Fresno to Edmonton at the end of March 2011. I have my route mapped out from Yuma - San Diego - Fresno (staying on the 101 AS MUCH AS possible), but looking at flat, "quick" options from Fresno back to Edmonton. Currently my plan is to take the I-5 to Sacramento, I-80 over to Salt Lake, then I-15 up to Alberta. My concern is the mountain passes on I-80 @ Truckee and I-15 @ Butte. My time is flexible and I could take the I-5 up to Seattle, but then I still have Mt.Shasta and atleast one big pass in BC/Alberta.
Driving our first RV home and would like to break her in somewhat gently and avoid any major mountain passes if possible.
Would appreciate anyone to pipe their two cents my direction in regards to these routes.
