I swear in some of the RV forums the guys are afraid if there's a guard rail present on a slight hill. As I said I've only pulled west to east on 14A and it is a good climb and beautiful scenery. I did it with my 02 ecsb 8.1 towing my 24' car trailer

You guys should check out eastern Quebec. Seen grades of 12%. Get off the main highway some are 16%.

The last time I ran 16 it changed from rain to snow partway up then I caught up to a plow and started following him. A bit later a car caught up with us and stayed there until the top when the plow turned around. Within the next mi I lost that driver as they seemed to be scared to drive over a crawl on the unplowed road. By the time I got to the bottom it was rain. Driving West Mi. winter roads since 1960 has taught me a bit about driving on snow and ice

Going west to East is not the problem with 14A. Going up a long steep curvy grade is easy with the right truck. Going from East to West on a long curvy steep grade becomes a stopping or slowing down problem if you are not very careful. Not saying that it can not be done. Just saying it for safety only. If I had to go down it I could. I have some good experience going through the Rocky mountain the past few years pulling a 31', 12,000 lb 5th wheel. If you want to go that way, just be careful and take your time that's all. And by the way. I do not get flustered by snow since I was born and raised in northern Wisconsin and drive in it every year. Cheers, and happy towing!
