Wow I guess I didn't pay that much attention but last month I pulled a 22' box trailer full one end to the other of my son's furniture & belongings from Johnson City TN I26 to Florence SC basically on that route & don't remember any grades or curves that were bad at all. Definitely no white knuckle areas.

I took option 2. I was concerned with pulling the mountain up into NC and then with the 6% down grade out of Asheville. This was the time pulling the 5th wheel over the mountain with our 1500. It handled even better that I could have hoped for. We are right on the verge of being overloaded. We averaged about 12 mpg staying at 60 mph. I couldn't ask for a better setup for traveling.

Are you back from the beach yet? I'm curious to know how the park is. We're thinking about going down there next year.

We camp there for a week every May before the biggest rush. It's a well kept campground with nice bathhouses and at least two paths out to the ocean. Great places on the causeway going in for bird and gator watching. Far enough away from the Myrtle Beach crowds yet close enough to go up there if you want. Brookgreen Gardens is right across hwy 17. I believe the tickets are good for at least three days. Most sites are water/electric only. I was able to make it all week without moving to the dump station with 3 of us in the camper. Plenty of places to walk and ride your bikes. Only drawbacks for us was no cable TV but antenna picked up 3 or 4 stations and the wifi is only good right around the camp store.

53jimc - This is our 3rd time here, 1st time with this 5th wheel. We really like it here - so much less congested than Myrtle Beach but with all the eminities. The beach is terrific and huge. The campground is typical beach state park. We actually get 16 TV channels, although there is still nothing fit to watch. You will not be unhappy!
