First trip Ft Worth TX to Baltimore MD - seeking wisdom!

Wife and I want to travel this week (Nov 15) from Fort Worth TX to Baltimore MD to see kids and grand kids. Hopefully we might arrive by Thanksgiving weekend. This is our first real trip, so we have not yet traveled in cold weather. Our trailer is supposed to have a cold weather package - sealed bottom, tank heaters, etc.

Looking to travel southern route on Interstate I-20 from Ft Worth to maybe Atlanta, GA. My question is - should we head north on I-85 in Atlanta GA, or should we continue east on I-20 to pick up I-95 in Florence SC? Want to avoid mountain travel, snow and freezing temps while on the road. Seeking your experience and recommendations.

Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi, pulling a 2013 Rockwood Windjammer 26 foot travel trailer.

Thanks...Ron

Probably over to SC. Atlanta can be a bear

North or south of Baltimore? You cannot go through the Fort McHenry Tunnel with propane tanks. You have to take 695 around.

I would go over to Florence, SC and then up to MD. There is also another tunnel in Balt. that you can't go thru, maybe Harbor tunnel? Good luck and have a great trip.

Cannot use 95 or 895 tunnels with propane. You can loop wit 695 either direction and bypass the city.

Son lives in Wilmington, DE and have tried the southern routes. We go up I-81 to Hagerstown, east on I-70 and take the 695 loop to 95. Only about 20 miles further and we miss D.C. and sooo much traffic. I actually think it is quicker.
