With a heavier Airstream I wouldn't attempt it. It is conspicuously marked against towing anything longer than 35 feet combined vehicle and trailer.
Did not see any signs. Stopped at a rest area above Cottonwood. The trailer brakes were hot but not smoking.

There are signs there, 40' limit on length. I was ticketed there resently in the outskirts of Jerome for speeding at 35mph in my old porsche. They have. 20 mph limit from the very beginning of town limits.
While writing the ticket the cop mentioned that oversized vehicles was the other common tickets he writes. They have it so well set up to collect your $$s. That you can call in with a credit card and pay over the phone.

I guess since the mine ran out the town needs some income. Beware !

89A is a great sports car road, but there is an easier and safer and quicker route around the Mingus mountains to the south if you are heading from the Verde Valley over to Chino Valley/ Prescott area.

Cheers Richard

I've seen a 60' flatbed semi roll thru Jerome from Prescott. It was sporting two DPS (Highway patrol) front and back.

The sign I saw had a picture of a single truck, not a truck trailer combo. So is the 40 foot limit on the trailer, or the truck trailer combo?

Good question. You could call the courthouse to find out, if you are intent on driving that way.
I do get it about wanting to check out this route, the views from Jerome looking out over the Verde Valley are great. I'd suggest driving that way in your truck first. Unless you just can't resist a challenge. BTW. The ticket was over $200, my first moving violation ticket in decades. As I mentioned , they have got to do something once the mine played out.
An even more interesting route in the area is going south west out of Prescott on 89. Heading towards Wickenburg, even better views and the transition from the mountains onto the desert floor is fastenating . A bit easier road for larger vehicles too.

Cheers Richard

I did a virtual drive through Jerome using Google Street View and the only signs I saw regarding length restrictions were these in the pic. They are posted West of Cottonwood and East of Prescott on the stretch up to Jerome.

I'm smell a rat. There is no way a semi can make the hairpin turn at the top of the hill in jerome. Just saying

I live east of Chino Valley, just over the hill from Jerome. I’ve driven this route several times but never with my AS. Do yourself and the rest of the cars on the road a favor and take HWY 169 around to the south. It’s actually a faster route to Prescott. If you want to see Jerome, park your AS at the bottom of the hill and take your TV to Jerome. Parking is limited in Jerome so I would get there before 11:00am. If you can’t find a place to park in town take the narrow road on the right side of the fire station back about ¼ mile to a large parking lot. You’ll have to walk back to town. There are a lot of good restaurants in town. We like the haunted Hamburger.

I (motorcycle) met this rig above the Haunted Hamburger where the retaining walls narrow to the road. Down the middle, and swung wide at the fire dept.
Remember this was one of the main roads from Phoenix to Flagstaff before I 17.

My Sis and I drove over to Jerome today. On the way back over the mountain back to Chino Valley. We came across a couple of RV trailer rigs heading toward Jerome. Looked to be a 27'or so airstream. And a 30 ' sob. It was a busy sat.
But they didn't seem to have too many car or motorbikes stacked up behind them.
I didn't notice the signs for length limits today.

Sure is a popular weekend area.

Cheers Richard
