I used to be stationed at nearby Fort Irwin. While there, I went to Death Valley several times and thought I had seen almost everything that Death Valley has to offer, but I had never driven up to Dante's View. What a mistake that was. After having taken the 13 mile drive from CA-190, I can honestly say that the view from Dante's View is one of the most photogenic of any National Park. I came to Death Valley to say that I had been to the lowest spot in North America, but the highlight of my visit was Dante's View. You should go too.
Vehicles over 25 feet and trailers are prohibited from the last couple of miles on the road and you should heed that warning. There are a few tight spots where you could easily become stuck. Ther is a spot where you can unhitch and park a trailer.
