I-77 thru Charlotte can get busy at rush hours, consider taking I-485, I prefer going towards Gastonia and on down to Rock Hill. Oh, when on I-77 at the VA/NC line you have to climb and descend Fancy Gap, fog can be an issue and it is a 6-8% grade.

I-95 thru Jacksonville stinks, too much construction and traffic. I like the Jacksonville bypass on the Ocean Side to avoid the city. I-4 in Orlando is terrible around rush hour, try to judge your time carefully.

SC I-95 will bounce you all over the place, make sure your cabinets are closed nice and tight.

The only problem I find with interstate 81 is the hills seem your either going up or down the worst part of. 95 is VA if you hit it in small hours of the morning your good to go lf you want to bypass Baltimore try US 301 look at a paper map at exit 4 in Delaware take route 896 for about 6 or 7 miles it turns into us 301 take 301 to route 50 to 495 when you get on 495 your half way around the beltway .this way also bypass the key bridge
Don't know if you have propane but if you do don't use the harbor tunnel

We live in Delaware just a short drive from the 896 & 301 route and always use that way. Also a side note just off of 896 just before the C&D Canal Lums Pond State park has redone all their sites and are full hook ups and will make for a good overnight stop, only down side is they are all back in sites so those with a toad will have to unhook.

How do you get through the Baltimore tunnels with propane? We use to take the Francis Scott Key bridge to the east, but now use I-81, I-77, I-26, I-95.

I come from North of Worcester Ma and do that route. I have even gone down the Garden state parkway when we had our older trailer, was shorter. I 2nd the idea about driving at night through the north east corridor. 2 am on the NJT is very relaxing.

I don't go through the tunnels either due to the restrictions.

We are heading to Fort Wilderness today. We will be heading down I-75, though. Only going as far as Valdosta and stopping since DH is working part of the day. Want to stay off I 4 as much as possible.
