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's 2 I-40 stay south your still will have to go through Albuquerque NM. which believe it or not is a higher elevation then Denver. But you really don't know your climbing, I went from Virginia to Calf. 3 years ago. Be ready for culture shook, I moved from SF to Clarksville Va. The Charlotte area is nice, but it is NOT CALIFORNIA...Good luck on your move..
PS: you can make it 5 long long days, but I would plan 7 if I were you...
