    Hi, all,

    Has any of you out there towed a trailer from the Scaramento area to Fort Bragg? I'm wondering which is the best (least bad?) route to take.

    I've driven hwy 20 between Willits & FB. That doesn't seem very inviting route for dragging a trailer. There's hwy 128 out of Cloverdale but I know nothing about that road. The coast route is pretty but very crooked. And, there're few places to pull over to let traffic pass.

    FYI, I'm pulling a 23' Extreme trailer with a '08 Tacmoma, 4.0 V6, auto tranny.

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    -Bob

    I dragged my Fleetwood Evolution E-1 over Hwy 128 from Cloverdale to the coast a few weeks ago, had no problems. Same vehicle, but an '09. Local advice said to NOT take "Mountain View Road" from Booneville to Manchester, however.

    We were coming up via Hwy 101, however. Don't know about Hwy 128 out of Sacto.

    Santacruzer,

    Thanks a bunch for the info! We'll take 101 north to Cloverdale. Out of curiosity, have you taken hwy 20 from Willits to FB? It's so crooked, you almost rear-end yourself!

    Cheers,
    -Bob

    Never been on that particular stretch of Hwy 20 from Willits to FB. Would probably try it w/o the trailer first, though.

    I've done both Hwys 36 and 299, from I-5 to the coast, with a trailer, although it was a smaller one than I have now. Hwy 36 is a real trip!

    HWY 20 is fine I drive it to my store all the time. It has pull out spots to let people pass and big rigs on it so people know to wait for the pull outs.
