Anything north of San Francisco (US 101), Sacramento (I5) and Lancaster (CA14 and then US395) will avoid all the CA traffic issues. Personally I like US101 north of San Francisco when headed north. If you want a good private RV park for a base to explore the Redwood Highway & Avenue of the Giants, try ANCIENT REDWOODS RV PARK in Redcrest.

If it were us and only heading to the redwoods, I'd probably say US-60, US-93, I-40, CA-58, I-5, CA-20, US-101. While going up US-101, get off and drive Avenue of the Giants in the Humboldt Redwoods. Getting through the Sacramento area will probably be your biggest pain. You will have to deal with narrower roads, curves and hills getting over to coastal northern California.

I would agree with the advice to avoid Calif gas prices, except for the fact that US 395 along the Eastern Sierra is so spectacular. I guess it depends on whether scenery is more important than economy. Choosing a Nevada route would be a lot cheaper -- I bet that you could come up with a pretty good estimate of the probable savings.

I know that the gas situation could change by April of 2023, but the difference in gas prices will probably remain about the same.
