Roads from Montrose to Durango

We have a small motor home (22') and am wondering how safe it is to drive on highway 550 this coming Tuesday. Is there any snow on the road. If we go slow and take our time do you consider it safe this time of year?

There's a good probability that the roads will be dry tomorrow. US 550 is an actual US Highway, and there are big rigs that manage it. Personally, I think that's pretty terrifying, but I've never driven a big vehicle!

It'll be an experience, but if you drive carefully, there's no reason to think you won't be able to make it. Check the road conditions report before you go to make sure it hasn't received fresh snow.
