Going back to the original question, will Cheep' have a problem with this rig towing across the mountains? I don't have a clue.
I think the easiest way to cross the continental divide is taking I-80 across Wyoming (unless you go through NM). This is South Pass and was the way of the Oregon Trail. Of course, there are many more mountains after that. I-84 would take you up through Boise and into NE Oregon I think. This goes through high desert, but the grades are probably less. Going through the Columbia Gorge would take you to the ocean (maybe that's still I-84).
