You will have to get off 95 and go around Baltimore on the beltway (695). Either way (the west or east would be fine though going East would get another toll when you go over the Francis Scott Key bridge there). Rush hour would be very slow no matter which way you go.
There is no weight restrictions that I am aware of, but I think they have the big trucks use the ez pass only lanes located on the right end of the toll plaza. I see the trucks going through those all the time. I would just follow them if you are not sure. I have used those lanes with just my car, so they are not truck only lanes.
We started out the trip planning to use your advice re: 695 but I think my wife may have gotten mixed up.
Thanks to all who replied with their suggestions.
We used 695 on the return trip and it was a pleasure. I didn't get to see much because it was dark and misty. Virtually no traffic, at times we did not see another vehicle heading north with us and not much heading south bound.
From now on it is 695 if in a rush but I plan to try the route suggested by Unduh camping and Flybob next time.
The Good Sam/Rand McNally GPS still wanted to take us through that tunnel on the way back. I also noticed that it thinks the speed limit is 55 and not the posted 65 on long stretches of highway.
I want to mention that my Sunseeker 2250 on the Chevy chassis was flawless on the trip and exhibited perfect road manners.
Thanks again for your timely help,
