I've been told there are issues near Buffalo on I-190. On one of our stops we plan on going to the Niagara KOA off there. Any issues on I-190?

I live in lower NY and travel a lot in PA, NJ, MD and VA. Stay away from all parkways in NJ and NY. Also for convenience and cost savings. Look into a EZ-Pass. They don't cost you anything and if you are up here for a while it will save stopping at tolls. The governments up here love toll money. If you stay on any o the main roads/highways. You wont have any issues.

The only issues you may have around Buffalo would be if you were to be on some of the city streets of Buffalo itself. There are several bridges that are less than the NYS minimum of 13' 6". Those bridges are pretty well marked and it would be highly unlikely you would be in any of those neighborhoods with an RV. As long as you are on the Interstates you will have no issues. There are no low clearance issues going to the Grand Island KOA as it is right next to the I-190 with easy access to Niagara Falls.

If you are going to go into Canada, remember passports, no guns, and pet rabies shot information. Most tourists prefer the view from Canada, but both sides are spectacular.

We drove this route--
http://goo.gl/maps/MMipc

Columbus OH, to Four Mile Creek SP in NY in June pulling my rig and
had no issues at all.

Nice little park BTW. Nothing fancy but an economical place to stay while
we were "doing the Falls area".
We have no kids so didn't need all the whistles and bells of a typical KOA.

Thanks Guys.
My other areas of concern are the DC area (going be staying at the Cherry Hill RV Park) and Philadelphia area (Timberlane RV Park in NJ is the closest I could find). I know going around DC and Baltimore are going to have issues (tunnels and such); just not sure how many though.

The only issue in this area are both tunnels on I-95/895 in Baltimore- NO propane is allowed. You have to take I-695 in either direction. I prefer south, but there is a toll with the Key Bridge. North just takes too long.

No issues around DC nor getting to Cherry Hill park.

I live in the Hershey/Gettysburg area. No problems in our area if you stay on the main roads. There are plenty of low bridges, but they are all on secondary roads.

With the RV market booming and all, you would think it would be easy enough to find on the net...
I live in Virginia, There is no problems with the tunnels, they are all 13'6" or more. It is true that they make you stop before entering with propane, but you just turn it off go through and then pull over and turn it back on at the other end. There is easy on and off at these spots, most of the time you have to wake the guy up. Never a back up at the station. All you have to do is VDOT and they will give you any restrictions they have for any highway you ask or tunnels and bridges. Do not let that scare you off it is really only a 5 min delay and like I said easy off and on at each end with alot of space to do it in.....

Travelled from western Michigan to Lake George, NY last summer on New York thruway (I90) with no problems except usual construction area situations found everywhere. Only area of concern were the toll booths on the turnpike in Ohio (scraped my new coach). Have heard from others that Ohio booths are tighter than most.
