Ernest, what are planning to drive on the trace?

I've driven on it several times but don't know if I have ever seen a Class A on it.

The rules say nothing over 1 and 1/2 ton

https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-20...l1-sec7-43.pdf

but their website say it can accommodate RV's up to 40,000 lbs.

You might can call one of the offices to see to make sure.

Last July, I drove the Berk up the Natchez Trace from Jackson, MS to around Williamsport, TN; where I swung over via US-412 to I-65, and then to Nashville. Did 320 miles of the Trace.

The trip was very peaceful, not much traffic, very scenic and with pull-overs as previously posted. We stopped at the Kosciusko Museum along the Trace. It had had parking for the Berk. Would do the Trace again.

I ran the Trace a couple years back. Looking to do it again. We did it when Gov. closed down , nothing was open. We are 52' total length. No problem. Very nice ride!
