Well, you'll get lots of mixed opinions here. We've been on that road a couple of times and both 1 and 101 have some serious twisty-turns in them. It's all doable but, how much you'd want to endure with large coach like that is up to you. There will be some turn-outs but you'll still acquire lots of back-up traffic behind you because you surely cannot go even the legal speed limit because of the design of the road.
We did it with a Honda Goldwing, towing a small trailer and it was pain in the a... even with that. Sure, there's tons of scenery but at what cost in terms of tight corners, tailgating, etc. If it were me, I'd opt for cruising that road(s) with the toad if possible and leave the coach inland someplace. But that's just an opinion. It's really a nice scenic drive but, in a M/H, I'd opt for another plan and I don't scare that easy. Hope this helps some.

I did it just pulling a pop-up and it was arduous. No way I would do it in anything as big as your rig and if you do, your going to use up a lot of front tire and brakes from the constant turning. This is an extremely twisty road and you won't be doing any sightseeing because you'll be concentrating hard on just driving.

Quote from driver #1: "The road is horrible. Last time on it I got sick and the curves are terrible. Not enough turnouts to avoid all the fast cars and it was a white knuckle experience all the way down to Morro Bay."
Quote from driver #2: " It's a beautiful drive and I take it often. You shouldn't have any problems at all. Enjoy your journey."
This seems to be he range of responses from people experiencing the state highways of northern California. If you can't relax on a 2-lane curvy highway than you may want to stick to the freeways. The way I look at it, logging trucks USED to use all of these highways in the past, so our RV's plus shouldn't have a problem staying on the road.
I did it a couple of years ago in my 32 class A with a Ford Escort toad. I wouldn't do it again. Some of the switchbacks were so sharp and low that my tow bar would scrape. Many times there were cars that wanted to go fast too and they were stuck behind me for many miles. Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful drive but it's also lot of work.
I think its more than just an opinion,.....when its plainly posted,....
"no vehicles over 30 ft advised" And for some first hand advice,....DON'T !!
In '94, I personally crashed a 24 ft MH on that road,.......admittently because I was not paying attention. On a sharp turn, a chunk of that granite just kinda jumped right out into the roadway demolishing the RH mirror, then when I jerked the wheel away from the mountain, the rear swung around hard,....tearing the awning completely off, and tore into the right rear siding, and tearing a gash in the RR window,.....total $9K damage. Not one of my best 4th of July weekends, but was the most memorable !

OK. It was in the 80s But. I did San Josie to San Diego in a Cab over trailer truck, 45' trailer. YES we made it, NO we were not supposed to be on it, Yes the trailer drug the mountain, on one side, while the tractor nearly hung off the cliff. Was it fun, Well kind of, Was ti scary? In places.
Did I drive? NO. He read the map , and got us on it while I was asleep. When ask did I want to drive? I politely said. YOU got us on here. YOU get us off.
Now there were tour busses running the road all day. So a MH should be OK I would think.
BTW Once I quit rolling around in the sleeper, and got up, and sat in the pass seat. It was a really pretty ride. I woke up going by Montery Bay, Sat big eyed thru Big Sur.
