depends on which section of Highway 1 you're talking about.
it varies widely, section to section.
the sections most often advised for long RV'ers to avoid, is the section between Hearst Castle and Carmel and the section between Fort Bragg and Leggett.

That would NOT be enjoyable, unless you were stopping at many different locations to camp. It gets too tight and you may have a lot of clearance issues with branches, etc.
That being said, I'd do it, but I'd have to have a really good reason...

Don't take Fort Bragg to Legget but the rest of it is doable though there are better options. While the views are spectacular it would be better to drive 101 for parts of it and cut over to Hwy 1 to camp and sight see that area in your truck. There are always people sight seeing on Hwy 1 so getting a spot big enough for a 5er can be done but don't expect your first choice on a weekend. It is some of the most beautiful scenery to be found. Enjoy!

We are in Sacramento. We are seriously considering moving out of Cali. After I retire.

We left Sacramento in 2005 and never looked back.
We are in Surprise AZ now but we do go back and visit.
