Route choice Harrisburg, Pa to New Castle, Pa

Traveling between Harrisburg, Pa to New Castle, Pa on 23/24 June. Good Sam route shows either Turnpike with $27 tolls or from Harrisburg, Pa take US-22 West / US-322 West towards State College. Like the idea of no tolls but wonder what US22/322 driving is like. Pulling a 35 ft V-Cross TT with Ram 2500 diesel.

Toll road 4 1/2 hours, 277 mile, $27 tolls
Non-toll road 5 1/2 hours, 315 mile, extra 4 gal diesel

Anyone know or travel this route towing a trailer? How would the hills/mountains on US22/322 compare to I-80 hills/mountains?

Enjoying God's creation each day.

2015 Ram 3500 Laramie Limited with 6.7L Cummins Diesel

Haven't ran Us22 but have been across Rt322 from Woodland just East of Clearfield to Harrisburg. The hill called 7 mile is Between Philpsburgh and Port Matilda. My choice of route to take would be I 76 from Carlisie to Bedford (rt 99) North to Hollidaysburg (rt 22 to Ebensburg (rt 219) to rt 422 to New Castle.
I drove Semi for 33 years and have gone this route many time's You will have one good pull heading West out of Holidaysburgh put other than that not a bad route.
You will be ending your trip just South of where I live. Here's a link to Google Maps of that route. Happy Trails!3e0
