last week I traveled I 40 east in Arizona and the road was terrible. I am a motorhome towing. Next week I have to travel it again. Can anyone tell me if I 10 would be better? I could take that and connect back to I 40 via I 25 later. Does I 40 get better after Arizona? .Thoughts? thx

Did you mean to title the thread "Nevada roads question"? Did you mean Arizona?

I40 only touches very little of Nevada and 10, not even a bit.

And 10 after California is one vvery very boring freeway.

What is your starting point and destination as I-10 and I-40 are somewhat parallel but with very different conditions. Often getting from one to the other can be another adventure on it's own.

Regarding Nevada roads, I’ve found them pretty good. Compared to California’s? Excellent.

After driving 7,900 miles across the US and Canada this spring, I found highways in NY and NJ to be in very poor condition. I may be biased but the I-40 through AZ is 10 times better than some highways in other states. The stretch of I-40 between the AZ stateline to where it ends in Barstow is in very good condition.

Both I-40 and I-10 are in decent shape but mind numbingly boring. After November first watch the weather carefully if contemplating traveling through Arizona and/or new Mexico on I-40.

Every year, often more than once, I-40 will be shut down between Albuquerque and Flagstaff for several days at a time. I-10 usually remains open throughout the winter months but can be subject to serious snow at the higher elevations {the Continental divide lies midway between Lordsburg and Deming}.

We spent last Christmas with our friends in Angel Fire New Mexico. Going home we had snow blocking some or all of at least one lane of southbound I-25 all the way to Truth or Consequences... check the weather - the internet is your friend.
