We are going to Taos, Santa Fe NM next month. I am still waiting for my jeep (ordered), without a toad, is it still possible to drive my 37’ Class A motorhome to visit attractions in Taos, Santa Fe and find parking?
Please advise.
Thank you!

The problem is I don't have a toad right now, so I have to drive my 37' around the town, how ease it is to find parking on the street for 37' motorhome?

If it's a major concern you could rent a car.

Most of the "old town" parts of those cities are small and tight. There's so much to see in those towns and it would be a shame to miss parts or to be stressed out the whole time. I agree that renting a car would be cheap insurance to make sure you can see everything you want to see.

That's a beautiful part of our country. Enjoy it.

Good point! Thank you!

Just rented a jeep on Turo.com, only $80/day, much better than Car Rental company.

Yup in those wonderful places, you have to understand that the downtown was laid out many centuries ago. Do not expect parking downtown for a motorhome.

But, there is some public transportation and certainly Uber. DON'T MISS THEM.

BTW, we spend summers in Angel Fire, just east of Taos. 8,400'+ makes for a very nice summer climate.
