Driving a Thor Vegas 25' Moho pulling a jeep. Should I try the drive UP the Moki to get to Rt.95? It'll save 50 miles not going around thru Bluff.[emoticon]

Been up and down it 10 or 15 times. Once hauling a small RV (the first time inadvertently). It was built for uranium trucks. So make your own decision. Its no right of passage, great view tho.

Agree. We drove up it with just our TV, but it was built for trucks. It has several hair pin curves and narrow in some spots. There are numerous YouTube videos out there. Watch several and determine if you want to do it.

I've done it in my 32' MH, no problem and fun. Keep an eye out ahead for oncoming vehicles and plan for pullover at the wide spots. Take lots of photos, you'll be talking about it for a long time.

You can VISUALLY drive the route in Google maps HERE. The second to last switchback near the top appears to be the tightest plus the 10% grade.

We recently drove Moki Dugway in a 3500HD dually crew cab pickup. It can be tight when meeting another vehicle, however we had no problems. Large dump trucks and a grader were working on the road at the time. Signs state: 10% grade, towing/vehicles >10,000 lbs GVW not recommended.

Since you live in FLAT LAND of FL, Go for it. There is also a very interesting FREE boondocking camping spot (Muley Point Overlook N37° 14.053' W109° 59.565') if you turn left at the VERY top of the hill. The road to muley point is washboad, but the view is outstanding.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

I didn't enjoy driving up the dugway in my toad. of course I am not as "manly" as some of these adventurers.
