Thinking of heading to Gunnison, CO late August. Wondering if anyone out there has an opinion on the best route from Texas. I could go Interstate 25 to Hwy 50 or go further into New Mexico and go up 285 to Hwy 114. Colorado Hwy 50 and 114 both have a pass. Which road is better 50 or 114? I will be pulling a 30 ft TT.

Hubby and I just did your trip plan in reverse September 2012. On our way to Gunnison we took Highway 50, because we started at the Royal Gorge.. On our way out we took Highway 114... The biggest difference we found in the routes was Highway 114 is a narrow 2 lane road through the mountains... Highway 50 is wider and takes into account the traffic on it. We also experienced snow on Monarch... Highway 114 was beautiful with all of it's fall colors... Monarch pass is much higher, although taking road differences into account a better route... We are driving an old 1990 35 ft Class A (460 Ford) with toad.
