Route from Williams AZ to Las Vegas

Can someone help with a route from Williams AZ to Las Vegas? We have a 30' motorhome pulling a wrangler.

Can you go 93 from Kingman, or do you take 68 to Laughlin, and then 95 up?

Just wondering about getting over Hoover Dam. Or is there a secondary bridge now? Most everything I have read states traffic is restricted over the dam...?

Nice bridge over the Colorado river just down stream from Hoover dam. Very easy drive from Kingman to Las Vegas now.

Kingman, take truck stop exit and go north to Vegas. No need to go to Laughlin. You no longer go across the dam. There is a new bridge just west of the dam.

This spring we took Route 66 between Seligman ( about 40 miles west of Williams) and Kingman. Much nicer route than I40 Good road, no traffic, and gorgeous. You can even stop at the Grand Canyon Caverns. Google it for details. And definitely take 93 from Kingman to Vegas.

Yep, Kingman is the best for sure. There is also a Blue Diamond wash off the highway on Andy Devine (next to McDonalds) if your rig is dirty. There are a few others a little west of there too.

Did this trip in the spring. Williams to Kingman, then north by the Hoover Dam. Didn't stop at the dam because we didn't know if RV parking was available. I might suggest going Route 66 to Kingman instead of using I-40. I have never dodged so many huge potholes along one stretch of road in my life. We now have a bent axle on our TT because we couldn't swerve around them all. I imagine that both Flagstaff and Kingman have a booming tire business. They were paving westbound, but eastbound was a mess. The blown tires on the road reminded me of roadkill alligators in Florida. Lots of semi-trailers in the left hand lanes because of the condition of the right lanes on the highway. Route 66 is much quieter, more scenic, and with less elevation change making it a pleasant detour. Have a great trip.

FYI
The new Bypass around Boulder City is open so you won't have to go thru town like in the past.
This is just a phase of the NEW Interstate 11 Route from Canada to Mexico.
This way the drugs flow freely thru and no bottleneck in Boulder City.

Opened last month. Easy driving so don't worry and enjoy the new bridge over the Colorado and see the Hoover Dam .
Enjoy your trip.
Oh Fuel up in Kingman as the fuel is still cheaper in Arizona.
