Just returned from LA area to western NC. Used I-40 and had no problems. Good drive. Took 6 days and stayed in KOAs. Believe it is a little shorter than the I-10 route.

I'd stay on I40 THROUGH Tennessee to Knoxville/Ashville...then down I26 to 74 and 85 into Charlotte...Avoiding Atlanta entirely. Have DONE this. It is fine and a nicer drive than I10 & prolly quicker too.
Suggest you also look at CrackerBarrel as an alternate to motels if you want to save some bucks...many have RV spaces and almost all are off an interstate. Buy breakfast & hit the road!
Welcome to NC!!

X-2 never had a problem in rest areas
Welcome to NC 2 hrs to mountains, 4 hours to coast

CA to BC

I would do I-40 to NC 301 near Hickiry NC to I-85 you would avoid a pretty steep grade in I-26, but either works, welcome to NC we mostly camp at the beach but there are lots of choices mountains, low land and beaches

I would take I 40 to Hwy 321 down to Gastonia to I 85 to Charlotte.

Anyway you go is less important than your actual relocation to NC. Good move for you.

Perhaps he decided he would rather have California earthquakes to deal with than NC hurricanes.
