Tens of thousands of folks pull or drive their RV's down that road every year. Me included. It's scenic, the road surface is good. There are probably 50 threads abouthere.

Beautiful! Easy! About 125 miles in 2 hours and 16 minutes for a car. That's about 55 mph average, so with an RV...piece of cake.

Much was repaved this summer - great drive - one note that as you cross the Desert you will catch some major heaves in the roadway - if possible catch Black Canyon NP - if you continue on to Salida be sure all is well as Monarch Pass is real.

You will be fine,

But to answer OP: GJ to Montrose is flat, mostly agriculture country. Montrose to Gunnison is mostly mountain highway, but good surface, and no difficult climbs.

Try the Mexican restaurant on the river in Salida. Great view, food, drinks.

Definitely watch out for the heaves 20 or so miles out of GC. Reminds us of traveling through the Yukon and Alaska.
FYI starting in the spring Hwy 50 halfway between Montrose and Gunnison will be shutdown daily for major construction at the LIttle Blue Creek Canyon. Hwy 50 will be open only for 2 hours in the early morning, an hour at noon, and 2 hours in the evening. It is planned to be open all weekend. Best to plan a different route for the next couple of years.

The visitor center was closed this summer, may be open now. The park itself is open so you can look around.
