Travelling from ON Canada to San Francisco in Dec

Hi there folks we are planning a trip with our 5th wheel this winter to visit our daughter in San Rafael for Christmas to mid Jan before heading back to Tucson for the rest of the winter. Im sure a few of you have done this trip to SF in Dec and I am seeking any tips such as best route that time of year and things we would need to be aware of. I dont anticipate we will ne sleeping in the RV much until we get over the mountainss.

Thx Les Hicks

All I can tell you is we drove from Chicago to the SF Bay Area, in November, on I80.
NEVER again towing a trailer!
December would be worse.

Can't suggest a north to south route from Ontario but you need to take I10 west or I40 west and then head north to San Rafael, once you get to California.

Thanks I guess the only areas of concern on I-40 would be the Texas Panhandle and NM
