Crater Lake NP to Bandon, OR

Looking to take my rig (51' total truck and trailer) from Crater Lake NP to Bandon, OR this summer. The route I want to take is Hwy 62 to Hwy 227 to I-5 to Hwy 99 to Hwy 42 to Hwy 42S.

I was wondering how the roads were for towing and if it's doable for my rig. The roads look like they wind a bit in some areas, which doesn't bother me, but thought I'd see if anybody had traveled this route before and had suggestions.

No Problem with that route. After all your hinged in the middle

I take it every year from Shasta Lake to Medford where I get gas at Fred Meyer or Costco then up to Hwy 227 at Trail, to Canyonville and the Seven Feathers RV Park, top off the tank then head to Dillard / Winston, Hwy 42 to Myrtle Point to Coquille, Hwy 42 S then to Bandon.

BTW there is a scale south of Bandon a few miles on the left that you can weigh your rig on for free. Also the 76 gas station south of town usually has the lowest price.
