SMO has provided the ideal route for you. My route was more from the DC area (easier than going that far west). My parents use that route when they travel north from NC. Thanks SMO, and safe travels

I also agree with SMO - 17 to 81 avoids all of the hassle - but am wondering if anyone has run 84 lately? The last time we used it there was a ton of construction and narrow chutes (one lanes). I was thinking of trying 78 to 287 instead?

Came up 84 from NY border a week ago lot of slow downs, speed traps, and it took an hour to get thru Waterbury. After Waterbury Hartford was a snap

Avoid the Tappan Zee Bridge, the toll towing a trailer is literally highway robbery. Instead use the Newburgh Beacon Bridge on I-84, the toll is much less. An added bonus is less traffic on I-84.

x2 to smo's suggestion.
Traveling rdtrip btw ME & Charleston, SC and recently MA to Charleston, SC things I want to avoid hauling the TT are I95 CT/NY/NJ/PA/DE/MD/DC, tolls, and cities.
We use the same trip tic as som north of Fredricksburg works great.

Happy Trails
