FL: Rt 301 from I-10 to Ocala?

Going to Bushnell area in March with 40' fiver. Is 301 do-able or should I continue on I-10 to Lake City and then south on 75? Thanks!

Haven't done it (301) in a couple of years, but as I remember its a pretty good secondary road. There are some small towns along the way and a rig that big may not be so welcome. It is a bit shorter however, not much faster.

301 Will be fine. I cut through there all the time on my way north. you do have to watch the speed traps around Waldo, Starke, and Lawtey, but the lanes and roads are wide enough for your rig.

301 will be fine towing as long as you don't mind constantly changing speeds between town to town ,)

301 is a good road. Yes, you have to slow down for a few towns, but it's not bad. If you want to travel faster than 60 to 65 MPH, take I-75.

Absolutely take 301. We have traveled via 301 in both our travel trailer and now in our Class A. MUCH MUCH preferred to I-10. I believe that it is definitely shorter - save some gas and virtually same amount of time. Don't miss fighting the traffic on I-10 or I-75.

And the winner is...

Route 301! Unless there's a sinkhole before March. Thanks for all the suggestions. I kind of figured out the time is about the same but maybe as much as 30 less miles...slower...all good for saving diesel and $$$.
