This may be a dumb question...but have people taken their teardrops over Sonora pass (northern CA)??? For info, we have a 5x8 TD with brakes and we tow it with a Ford Ranger pick-up.
I know trailers are not 'recommended', as I have driven the pass in my car and seen the signs, but is it safely do-able with the TD trailer? I have researched online about taking trailers across HWY 108 (and alternatively HWY 4/Ebbetts Pass) and have seen the 'oh my god no freaking way' response and others who have done it in large 5th wheels!
We had to drive on 120 through Yosemite on a Saturday in June coming back to the Bay Area from the Eastern Sierras and we would prefer to NEVER have to do that again. Between all the clueless drivers that just slam on the brakes for no reason or swerve into on-coming traffic and the pedestrians just walking in the roadway, it was a very stressful drive! Plus, the 30-45min wait in line just to get into the park!!! It was bad planning on our part, but a learning experience.
HWY 108 is the next best option for the Bishop/Bridgeport/Big Pine area we like to frequent, so I was hoping for some feedback from those with experience.
