Insights Needed - 101 on OR coast

This week we're headed from Seattle to Depoe Bay OR, then planning to continue down 101 along the Oregon coast to Redwood NP in CA.

Any inputs on 101 in OR? How small/curvy and suitable for a 28' AS?

Appreciate any insights or advice.

We take it every year down from BC - my wife's favorite part of the trip!
We do it in a 31' Airstream and have no problems, but I do have a 100 gallon Aux. fuel tank in the back of my TV - so I don't have to go to gas stations - just truck stops every 1500 miles or so.

Oregon Coast

The wife and I have been going there every year since the 80's From Astoria south to Ferndale california is the most beautiful part of the left coast . Try and take some extra time to explore if you can . Many of the best areas are away from 101 Have a great time We are headed to Winchester Bay / Reedsport Oregon sept 4 for Salmon fishing and crabbing then on south to Gold beach Oregon and the Rogue river We will be gone a month So good to be retired We have a 30 ft AS limited which is actually 31 ft long plus some with the Hensley Arrow and we have never had a problem on any of the oregon roads

We did it north to south last fall with our 28' and had no issues at all.
Wonderful area and a great trip to take. Your also going to be going the right direction as all the pull off are on the ocean side. So going south is a large advantage as you don't have to cross traffic to get into them.

Good luck and have fun.

We just did that road, no problems whatsoever with our 25'.

Safety Tip: Do NOT stay at "Sea and Sand" in Depoe Bay!!! Let me know if you need more details.

Just got home from a trip down the 101 in Oregon. One of my most favorite drives anywhere. You will be just fine. There was a lot of road construction south of Newport all the way into California. Several places where we had to wait for one lane roads. Just plan some extra time and enjoy the scenery!

We live in Oregon and have done the trip a number of times. I love the Oregon coast. Some towns are better than others. Astoria / Ft. Stevens is great. Same with Cannon Beach and Pacific City.

Just please be aware that the road does get narrow at times and there can be some long stretches where you can't pass. You'll be sharing the road with commercial traffic, logging trucks, vacationers, locals, and - more importantly - cyclists. Drive safe & respectful and you'll have a fantastic time.

Have done the Oregon coast highway many times. Its a nice trip.

As others say just take your time - it will not be hard to do as you will find that many who are not towing are also taking their time. It is not nearly as scary a tow as the California section of the coastal highway can be.

Nehalem Bay State park and the little surf town of Manzanita are one of my fav spots as is Beach Side State park.

While towing, avoid "Three Scenic Route" between Pacific City and Netarts.

Enjoy your trip!

We did 101 last year from Cannon Beach almost to San Francisco. It was awesome. Not a fast road, don't be in a hurry. Expect plenty of twists and turns, lots of up and down. Nothing we and our rig couldn't handle. Rocinante is a 27FB (28' long), towed with our RAM 1500. It was a wonderful experience. You'll love it!

I think the above refers to Three Capes Scenic Drive. We just took our 23FC along 101 and also avoided that stretch until we dropped the AS. I was glad not to have the AS behind me on those routes, but the routes are worth it if you have time without the AS..
