driving blue ridge parkway

good afternoon Hey I am planning going to Virginia was wanting to drive the blue ridge parkway. I have a 2011 access cab prerunner with 6
cylinder automatic no pulling package but I installed a transmission cooler. will be pulling a 17ft casita. weight loaded around 28 to 2900lbs. total weight around 7500 lbs. I was told that there are a lot of steep hill on that drive was wondering if anyone has driven it and what they think about my driving with this set up thanks for the help

lots of curves and lots of inclines/declines. I haven't driven the VA portion but have been on the NC portion several times. Not sure if it's similar terrain though.

The VA section does not have as much elevation change or anything as the NC section, especially the southern/Middle NC section. I think you would be fine just pacing yourself. Just be ready to get honked at and yelled at for going under the speed limit. Have a blast if you do it. It is one of the most beautiful areas of the country IMO and truly a gift so enjoy. I lived there for 2 years so know it pretty well if you have any other ?'s
