Heading to Crecent City from I-5 and wondering which route is better with a 5th wheel?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure 199 is preferred, but I want to follow this thread because I may be doing the same drive this summer.

199 is fine, just take it slow, and enjoy the view.

We don't have a 5'er but with our class C w/ toad on the dolly, we had no problems on 199, plus according to Google maps, it's roughly 1 hour 45 minutes, Vs 7 hours and 9 minutes down to Redding & up 299 .

While you asked about cutting across from I 5 at Grants Pass or Redding to Crescent City, and I agree that 199 is certainly preferred, have you thought of leaving I 5 south at Cottage Grove taking Oregon 38 to Reedsport and south on US 101? I can't compare I 5 and 101 on the Oregon Coast for scenery and camping options.

Just drove the 299 and then 101 North. Not to bad. Lots of turnouts and beautiful this time of year. We made 6 stops along the way (dogs and potty breaks) and pulled over many times for the faster traffic and made it to Crecent City in just under 5 1/2 hours. I would highly recommend this drive. Just have patience and go slow. We hit the 55mph speed limit in a few places for just a few minutes on 199. Most of the time, we under it.

There area a lot of grades but none over 7% for more than a mile. Most of them were 6% or less for a mile or two, with one or two just a little longer.

We were traveling with a dog and kid that gets car sick and neither got sick.

Safe travels.

We have done the drive from cottage Grove to Reedsport. Wanted to mix it up this time. I think we will go back 199 to Grant's Pass on the way home.

Take the long way. Make sure you do not try to follow the Rogue River.
