I've done the ALCAN twice and both times in the winter. 1st trip was Feb 03 and 2nd was Nov 09. Pulled a 30ft TT up with a 7.3 Powerstroke Excursion and 2nd trip towed a 40ft triple axle with a Dodge 3500 dually with 5.9 Cummins.

Traveled with 2 children, wife and yellow lab and we had a blast. All Super 8 hotels on the ALCAN take pets. We traveled about 300-500 miles per day and just took our time.

Get a Mile Post book before going. It is a great tool to have with tons of info.
If towing a trailer make sure you have a stone guard on the trailer or big mud flaps on your vehicle. A radiator screen would be a good idea for summer travel as well. We didn't have rock/stone issues because everything was snow covered, but summer/spring travel will be different.
2 must haves would be money and a mile post.
Stop at the Laird Hot Springs.

Great info Doug! My wife and I will be towing our travel trailer as well. Thanks for the Laird Hot Springs recommendation.

I took the road less traveled. Now I'm LOST.
