Best route to travel from Florida to upstate NY.

I will be traveling with my first truck with a 5th wheel behind it.

I don't know how you pick up 81 from Florida but I do know a lot of people do. I would much rather drive 81 up than 95. A lot of white knuckle driving through Richmond, dc, Baltimore, philly. Also kind of depends where in ny your headed and how much time you have to do it. 81 is a lot less stressful and a great scenic route.

I'm thinking 95 to 26 in SC to 77 to 81. That way I would off 95 before hitting all the trouble spots.

Oswego - that's the route we take 4 times a year from Oswego, NY to Ft. Myers Beach FL. Be aware that you will encounter a lot of truck traffic (they don't like I-95 either) and some substantial hills along this route. Take your time and enjoy the scenery, it's definitely less stressful than dealing with Richmond, Baltimore and Washington DC. For my 1500 mile trip, the 81/77/26/95 route is 100 miles further, but I think it's faster. The other obvious caution - watch the weather and change your plans accordingly even if you have to take I-95 to avoid big storms.

Best route

I totally agree. Take 90 to syracuse then 81 south to 77 south past charlotte. Then 26 towards Charleston then 95 south from there. Low hassle, no big cities and no big grades.
