Going from Dubai passing Ras Al Khaima was easy and without difficulties we did reached the border. FYI: as a resident / expat in UAE you have to pay to exit UAE: AED 35 per person and AED 50 while entering in Oman / coming back you have to ensure that you have the stamp in your passport (exit Oman / arrival in UAE).
Ras Al Khaima - as a city is under construction and if you are not familiar with the city might be a little difficult to find your way towards the border (an easy option: ask a taxi driver to be in front of you / very cheap and not stress or your GPS can be useful).
On the way to Khasab - Bukha village - the is an old fort which can be on your list to visit.
Petrol stations are available and 1/2 price compare with Dubai.
We had a great time while visiting Khasab / Oman. We had a day trip by boat offered by Khasab Tours - for AED 180 per person with lunch and refreshments included (drinks i.e. coffee, tea, water etc). The Crew was very friendly and did a an excellent job. Captain Khaled did his best to cover the entire area showing us the main points of attraction. The weather was excellent (in Dubai was very dusty and foggy) / was a big plus for us going out of Dubai.
We did rent a villa with 3 bedrooms ( 5 adults and 1 child) very good location, clean, with all facilities available (kitchen, every room with shower and toilets etc). Lulu Supermarket is an excellent option for guests who are travelling on budget / next to Khasab Castle (museum - good place to visit).
The mountains - you can use 4x4 to have easy access (however I was able to drive quite a stiff ramp and enjoying the view with a smaller car VW Golf...attention ! do not take unnecessary risks).
Have fun and enjoy the day...
