Any advice on the interstate that drops into the valley? Sounds scary!
Since you mention Thousand Trails, I realize you are planning on staying at the RV park just off the 260 going from Camp Verde towards Cottonwood.
When driving north on the I-17 towards Camp Verde, there is a downhill grade as it approaches Verde Valley, but its hardly scary unless you allow your speed to build up too much. Pulling a trailer I wouldn't go above 50-55 and make sure the trailer brakes are adjusted properly (i.e. to come on just before the tow car brakes to avoid a jackknife).
My opinion on Thousand Trails is its OK, but nowhere near as pretty as Ranch Sedona.
