20 from Fort Bragg to 101 would be my suggestion.

I have towed a 32' 5th wheel all the way down HWY 1. It is not too bad, just take your time, not that you could hurry. Be sure to take the exit to Avenue of the Giants. The huge Redwood trees are awesome.

You're thinking of highway 101, not highway 1.

Visitors often don't understand that highway 1 sometimes joins 101 and leaves and then rejoins again, over and over up the California coast.

I will be traveling up from San Francisco to Seattle pulling a 30ft 5er and would like to see as much of the coast line as possible

You shouldn't have a problem in Oregon at all. To me living in Calf. for 25 years in SF. My wife's family is from up there Two years ago went up the coast pulling my trailer, I also think the Oregon coastline is prettier. Lots and lots of pull outs. Make sure you stop at Gold Beach. I'm not sure anymore but I think it turns into 101 up there. If it were me I would start at Bodega Bay. But as been said Ft. Bragg is easier but Bodega Bay is due able. Google it to see the route from above.

I believe 101 is the coastal route in Oregon. Some one correct me if I'm wrong. Lots of Redwoods on 101 in northern Ca. Ferndale in Humbolt county is a nice stop..just a few miles off 101...old Victorian town with several artist shops.

From the California-Oregon border to Seattle, it's very doable with your setup.
But from SF north the coastline isn't as accessible.
Much of Highway 1 is narrow, very twisty and slow.
The sections just north of the Golden Gate and north of Ft Bragg are not for the less experienced RVers.
