We only have a 19' Bambi but tow it with a 2007 Tacoma...and have towed both routes with no issues... Both are beautiful, but I agree that if you miss the Million Dollar Highway you will be sorry. It's spectacular. Good luck and have a great time whichever way you go...take your time and enjoy the high mountain towns while you are there... I second Ridgeway State Park, by the way.

There are no bad roads if you are on the main roads. If you can stay between the lines then drive any of them since semi's do it all of the time. Driver might not get to enjoy the scenery as much since you should pay attention but it's just a two lane road.

Use common sense up and downhill. If you have TV that is marginal on power watch for overheating going up and use lower gear downhill with light use of the brakes.

If it was as difficult as some folks make it out then the landscape would be littered crumpled RV's.

Easier to drive Colorado than through Boston or New York City street

Personally, I won't tow the RV over it. Lived long enough and experienced enough that I don't bother with such any more.

Drive just the truck over it? No problem. Better still is the MG. (We had a fun race over Slumgullion pass one time. MG vs. Miata. He killed me in the straightaways; I killed him in the curves.)
