Hwy 20 runs east from Bend, through Burns, and ends up at Vale, Oregon, just prior to crossing into Idaho. It is predominantly a 2 lans road running through high desert with nt much of anything to se except the occasional cow. Just sagebrush, rabbitbrush, and an occasional Juniper tree! The road is fine, pretty straight until you get past Burns and then follow the river where there are lots of caves, but not bad a log as you watch your speed and signage. We took this route last year with our class C towing a jeep and all was well. You should have no issues doing the trip. Watch your fuel level, as once you leave Bend, the next fuel available is Burns, then Vale, Oregon. Crossing over into Ontario, Id, there are lots of choices. Not sure where you are planning on stopping overnight, but there are not many choices until you hit Idaho.

We just did that Ontario ID to Bend ID en route to Ft. Klamath (we didn't want to take the small road through the national forest, which probably would have been much more scenic!).

No problem with the road at all, but definitely do fuel up! Fuel prices along US-20 are extremely high and stations are far between.

There is one trailer park in Juntura that accepts overnight visitors and has FHU and several pull-throughs. It's a bad looking place and many people would take one look and keep going. But it worked out fine for us and the sketchy electrical hookup worked fine too. Some people say online the food is good at the inn but we didn't try it as we had our own food onboard.
