advice heading west from Vancouver Island

We will pick our 17B up in mid-July. Planning some time in BC. Heading back to Ontario from the island we are looking at the ferry to Anacortes, then straight east to Big Twin Lake Camp Ground. I'm wondering what this road is like hauling a trailer ?
From there we plan to stay on the US side until probably Sault St Marie. Any advice on that route, places to stay see etc. We are not in a rush to get home. Enjoy driving secondary roads as well as interstates, I try to avoid traffic and cities.

Based on your thread title, I thought that maybe you were barging your Escape to Asia!

By all means, take a detour north of Duluth at least as far as Grand Marais. Stop and enjoy all the wonderful state parks with their waterfalls and trails, the Palisade Head overlook of Superior, the lighthouse at Split Rock, and Artist's Point at Grand Marais.


Of course, Glacier NP is smack-dab in your path so you ought to spend some time around there, too. Plan on seeing plenty of wildlife. I stayed at the private Glacier RV Park a couple miles west of the W entrance, but for dry camping Apgar is nice too if they have a space. MacDonald Lake is pretty, the wildflowers should be abundant, and the hike to Avalanche Lake is pleasant if you are up to the steady 2.5 mile uphill trail. You can't take a trailer over the Sun Road, but it's worth the drive. Take the Escape around the S end of the park. More good scenery and CGs on the east side, too.
