we are heading from the syracuse are to Florida in less than a week. One of our favorite stops is the KOA in Yemassee, SC. great people and great rv park. They have alot of amenities there. it is easy on and off I-95. we try to make it there in one shot from north of Syracuse, then spend a couple days there. From there to Crystal River in FL is only about 6 hours. if you are heading down in the winter time go check out the swim with the manatee tours going on. Winter is the best time for that

I've made the trip twice and found very few campgrounds open until you're well into VA at that time of year. Either make reservations, or do the rest area/ Walmart parking lot thing. We did stay at a KOA off I-77 just south of Charlotte,NC. Don't know where you're headed in FL, but we also stayed at a KOA in Stark FL on RT 301.

In 2012 we left Oswego just after Christmas and got caught in winter storm "Euclid" in southern PA. Crawled along in 4 wheel drive at 10 mph for about 4 hours because I had reservations at a Campground south of Carlisle called Western Village. Woke up with 6" of heavy wet snow on the ground and trailer. Without 4 wheel drive I don't think I'd have gotten out of the park.

My other recommendation is to stay a long ways away from Baltimore, Washington DC and Richmond VA. We take I-81 South to I-77 below Roanoke, VA. I-77 to Charlotte, and I-26 through Columbia toward Charleston where we grudgingly finally join the I-95 rat race.
