Planning a trip from Salt Lake City to Brookings on the Oregon Coast in September. Route planners suggest taking NV/OR 140 from Winnemucca to Klamath Falls and Grants Pass. I've not driven 140 before. Pulling a 30'travel trailer. Any issues to be aware of? I'm in no hurry.

I can't recall driving that highway---however, check on Google Earth. You can see the elevation, road surfaces, curves, etc. Most highways around Klamath Falls are pretty good.

We made that very route a few years ago, towing a 34' fifth-wheel. I remember it as an interesting route and we encountered no problems whatsoever. Just know that it has some long, lonely stretches so be prepared with fuel. I would not hesitate to take that path again.

Good highway, lonely at times, and be sure and fuel up at Denle as that is the ONLY fuel that I recall between Winnemucca and Lakeview.

Nothing hard about that route. Just remember there is nothing out there. Keep your fuel tank filled up. Going over the Cascades will slow you down some west of K Falls.

I took it in March with a 30' trailer, not a problem. Nice drive.

There is one major grade near the state border - down heading into Oregon. The view may be more unnerving than the actual grade. Otherwise the main issue is distance between fuel stops. It's one of the longer stretches in the lower 48 without fuel.

Regarding the issue of fuel stops.....is this a concern for the Sprinter and Transit RVs that only have a 25 gallon tank....but do get 13-18 mpg?

If I remember correctly the sign says "NO FUEL NEXT 140 MILES" as you leave Winnemucca.
