Thanks everyone! We'd be coming from Denver area so we would be coming up I-25. Some nice ideas here, I'm tempted to pack a tent and just go at it alone here soon [emoticon] As mentioned steep grades don't bother us, but roads that are too windey do. So perhaps 14a isn't the best bet while towing.

Below is a picture of the sign at Burgess Junction that shows both 14 and 14a between there and Cody. FYI, the steep 10% grade on 14a is beyond Bald Mountain campground so no issue with towing that far. The section of 14 between Dayton and Burgess Junction is not shown, but is similar to the grade and curves on the west side of 14 to Shell.

No, I would not recommend it for most RVs as it's 10% grade and hairpin curves. But if you get a chance to drive it in a toad or TV, it's worth the trip.
We went down 14A with our trailer and I barely touched the brake pedal. That is what low gears and an automatic diesel exhaust brake were designed for.

I took a Class C built on Toyota one ton down 14A. Using first gear I rarely had to touch the brakes. I now have a TT and F150 and ocassionally have to apply the brakes. The EcoBoost may pull like a big engine going up but it is still a 3.5L V-6 going down so the engine braking is not as good. I still had no problem with going down that grade. It is one of my favorite roads in the entire country.

Highly recommend Tie Flume.

At the risk of making it harder for me to stay there in the future, here are photos :-)

Last one involved a climb, before drones.
