I-86 & I-88 through New York?

Are these good roads heading west or should we take I-90 west? We are pulling a 36' fiver.

I would take I-90. I-88 Between Albany and Oneonta is known for high winds.

I traveled on I-86 last year going east and found that road to be great; not a lot of traffic on it. I also traveled I-90 going west be prepared for a lot of tolls on the road. I pulled a 5er both ways a Cougar 318SAB.

I88 and I86 are both good roads 88 is no windier than any other road, both are normally light on traffic.

I88 and I86 are both fine. I90 is going to be heavy on the tolls, but with a big 5W, I90 has the big gas stops right on the roadway. With 88 and 86 you have to get off.

I prefer to pay the tolls and take the 90. On my last trip with the 5ver the tolls were triple. Toll booth operator explained that I had dual axle on the RV so 3x regular pay. Buffalo to Watkins Glen = $15 toll.
