I have not been on that particular road, but I have been on others through Nevada so I can comment on those. The roads were all good and yes there are grades and high elevations. I came across 50 from Ely to Carson City a few weeks ag and I think the road probably averages about 6000 feet and goes up over 8000 on a couple of passes. Even though I've never done 93, I wouldn't hesitate to do it in my motorhome. Hopefully somebody who has been on it can give you more specific advice. I'm going to do it someday because I just love driving through those Nevada back roads. That is some of the most remote country in the lower 48. Not much out there but high desert and some great scenery.

Go to Google maps and look at the Satelite view. Nevada is a series of mountain ranges that run north-south. So when you go across 50 you go up one range and then down into a valley and up another. You do this a few dozen times. From looking at 93 on the satelite view it looks like it does cross a couple of passes, but for the most part it looks like it travels in north-south valleys all the way up the state.
Been on 93 several times between vegas and Ely. All good road but as mentioned it has some grades and is a higher elevation. I came back from vegas the 1st of May and there was snow in the lower elevations then and cold in the KOA on 93 just outside of Ely. But I think Ely is over 6000 feet so no surprise.

Agree with Nevadanick. We run that road every year, both routes. 318 has been recently resurfaced, has fewer ups and downs, and is 40 miles shorter than 93. One climb into Ely on US6, but not bad. No fuel stops, though.
I've come across 50 a few times and found there are many turnouts and it's almost all public lands out there so I pull off the side of the road and boondock. So no worry about finding RV parks unless you want hookups. One of these days I'm going to plan a week trip just to go out there and drive around on some of those north-south roads. I want to drive the ET Highway and get as close to Area 51 as I can. Not to mention the nuclear test site.
