I pulled the advertised 16% grade to the Leguna Seca Raceways campground in my FR3 25DS pulling a 3200 lb HHR without a problem. 25% sounds incredible! If it isn't paved, no way I would attempt it ...

Unless my RV said NASA on the side I would not try that!

25% Grade = Helicopter in my opinion . Getting there could be a problem.

If things didn't go sideways burning up a tank of fuel going up, you'd want to make sure you changed what's left of your brakes at the bottom...
I think passing on this one is the right call..

Just seen this thread and WOW 25% grade is very steep for a TT or a 5er or even a pop-up. That's even a tuff walk up and then coming down is a scary thing if all isn't perfect condition.

We camped there 2 years ago in a fifth wheel and chevy duramax...the 25% grade road is true!
I easily went up and down the road which is approximately 1.25 miles up the mountain but never was it an issue of whether we could make it or not...nervous anxiety for the first trip up, definetely!

When we got to the top, there was everything from popups, gasser class c's and a's besides diesel tow vehicles and MH's.
You will have no problem with your rig, take it slow...great campground & would not skip a visit

Getting up the grade is half the problem. When your coming down a grade your need to be able to control your speed and stop.
