I would not recommend it. There are some hairpin turns and sharp hills on the drive into the canyon. The drive is VERY sandy and narrow for most of the way.

We have a 25ft motor home and we barely made it. 5 miles an hour on washboard road and then in a very sandy arroyo. Not level. So my answer would be NO.

There are spots in the canyon that are large enough, but I don't know that I'd try making that drive with one. It's about 5 miles of washboard dirt road, and there's a good amount of sand in the canyon itself. And there's zero cell service in there if you get stuck. My suggestion would be to take your towed vehicle if you want to visit the canyon.
