Thank you Robert, will do for sure. We still haven’t marked out the dates. We are going some time over the summer break just not sure if on the front end or back.

I agree but when I went there it was 35 years ago. I'm glad it is still a good place. We really enjoyed being there.

Something to remember. Long portions of CA 1 have a 40 ft vehicle max length restrictions both north and south of San Francisco. http://www.dot.ca.gov/trafficops/bus...busmap-d04.pdf. Links on this map will show where 40 ft restrictions apply in other areas of California

Thank you Craig for that information. I am glad we did this trip in our 35, since we cannot make it in the 42. I downloaded all the maps for the whole State and will have them in the coach. There are 12 districts that cover the whole State and I have checked we can still visit all our favorite campgrounds .

There was a time when you couldn't legally get to Eureka from the south with over 40 feet, but they changed that restriction through Richardson's Grove. Didn't change the road, just the restriction.


I've always gotten a kick out of the fact that you can drive a 45-footer from Mendocino through Ft Bragg, and for the first 4 miles east up 20, but you can't get there by any road. I don't think the port at Ft Bragg could handle a boat that would bring a 45-footer in, and the Skunk Railroad down from Willits probably couldn't either. You can use it but you can't get here from there!

Default Driving the Pacific Coast Highway

Linda and I were discussing our trips along the coast and our first RV trip was in the early 90's with a 28' rental SOB. At that time we had to share the road with the logging trucks roaring along the same road, and we remembered some of the bridges are only wide enough for a truck or motorhome single lane. At least now the logging trucks are a rare sight but there are a lot more bicycle riders that take a whole lane even on blind sharp turns.

Back in 1972 I drove a small semi (27-foot single trailer) from Redding to Eureka and then down 101. The thing I remember most was how unhappy the logging-truck drivers with me, in terms of my speed. The road was a lot worse then.


I went looking for videos of Richardson Grove as it is today, and found this one from 2014:

Great map and resource thanks for posting. Do you know if this is combined length of motorhome and towd. I’m just pulling a Subaru Forester.

I’m really psyched to do this trip.

Just the Motorhome. Combined 65-foot limit applies to both 40 and over-40 sections.
