I70 Eisenhower tunnel

Planning on going to Vail and Aspen next summer and wondering if there are any restrictions on pulling a TT with LPG on board through the tunnel on I70. Tanks will be shut off. Going over Loveland, although entertaining, is not what I have in mind.

Nope, no restrictions - we do it many times a year being that "the tunnel" is between our home and most everywhere we camp. Enjoy your trip!

No, there are no toll charges on I-70 through Colorado; it is not a toll road.

The only toll is the one on your engine and your gas tank with that 8 mile 7% grade up the pass.. I have seen a bunch of videos from FastLaneTrucking.com where they take loaded truck up the Ike from Silverthrone to Loveland to get performance numbers.

beautiful but harsh..

And on the downside make sure you gear down, use the tow haul mode or engage the engine brake if you have a diesel. One of the few places that have multiple runaway truck exits on the westbound down portion.
