don't see why not, if you're staying on the coast.

only areas i wouldn't take a MH are on parts of Highway 1: from Hearst Castle to Carmel, from north of the Golden Gate Bridge to Bodega Bay and from Fort Bragg to Leggett.
unless you have a short MH.

Highway 101 will be fine for any length of MH.

Well, since Hwy 1 is a California road and does not go into Oregon or Washington you might try Hwy 101 instead!

I agree with bikendan that some area are not suited to a MH, but your's seams to be short enough not to have too many problems. Northern CA on up the roads can get very twisty along the coast with sharp ups & downs. As to your tow some smaller towns (Carmel, etc) there would be no place for your MH and you would need the tow to site-see. I would make sure there are good skids under the back to protect your drain pipes...
Good luck with the trip!
Thanks, Bob
