I have a 38ft Tiffin towing a car. How is the parkway above? any bad turns?

Mustard,

We ran the entire Blue Ridge a few (like 10) years back in our old motorhome. It is a slow road so none of the many bends were all that exciting. Do take your time.

Going through tunnels, hug the yellow line to maximize clearance. Remember are heights are measured at the white line. The shorter tunnels are all arched so two feet over there is another two feet of clearance.

Also be curtious and let the traffic around you at the overlooks.

As mentioned, the road is slow enough that there shouldn't be any issues. Just check that day for any unexpected changes or closures. Because of the lengthy distances between some access points, posted detours can be frustrating so pre planning around them (if they are known that day) can ease the drive.

You will have no trouble driving on the parkway as to roads grades, curves or tunnels above Waynesville NC . All tunnel clearance is at the fog line. I suggest a stopover near fancy gap, to explore the nostalgia of the southern city Mount Airy, Andy Griffith home town.
