We just wanted to be sure there were no length restrictions as there are around the Big Sur area.
search California bus and motor home map for legal restrictions on length.

Recalled a joke with a friend who is amazed that I kept on using that narrow unprotected-bby-any-railings double ravine in Emerald Bay Road in Lake Tahoe.

My friend; You have a vertigo, how come you are not scared doing through that road?

Me: Simple, I just close my eyes.

Saw a family van who was driving in the middle of that white dividing line, lol.

Thanks @time2roll!

Restrictions are for motorhomes over 40 feet between San Simeon and Carmel.

Am interested on this and your info benefited me too as I'm planning to take that route again from Monterey to SoCall this first week of June.

I believe articulated vehicles, such as towing, are allowed an additional 10’.

Not to throw cold water on the north bound drive from San Simeon to Carmel but...the vista points are uniformly on the south bound side and with a toad it is no fun finding a break in traffic and parking. Also, there are several slow to 15 downhill curves followed by an uphill grade. That said, it is doable with patience and try to pull over and let backed up traffic pass. Many sports car drivers consider this a road to test their skill.

Those are residents and rich ranch owners with their Ferraris, lol.

I don't let myself be pressured by them by their tailgating. They can fly for all I care.

I pull along side when there is an space though for courtesy (I do that wherever anyways).

When you leave Morro Bay, you have two choices to get to 101. Head east on hwy 41 from Morro Bay to 101 or drive north to just before Cambria and head east on hwy 46 to 101. 46 is much straighter than 41. 41 will take you to Atascadero whereas 46 will go to Paso Robles. From there take 101 to Spreckels ave which is just before Salinas and bypasses it to get to 68 and then to Monterey. DO NOT take hwy 1 north of Cambria to Monterey. It is very scenic but super winding and narrow. I see the last washout has been repaired until the next one this coming winter. The mountain caves in every year.

We took a ride in our car north from Morro Bay yesterday and were shocked to see RV's heading north of San Simeon on 1. Crazy!

Thanks! I mentioned on another post that on a car ride yesterday we saw RV's heading north of San Simeon! It was tense enough in the car. We came in on 46 and thought about heading back out to 101 on 41, but given your description, we'll head back out on 46.
