whenever we do a long trip like that, yes - we plan how far we go each day and have reservations at each stop (but we are not set up to stop overnight at a walmart or cracker barrel parking lot). if you can do a parking lot overnight, you may be able to do a bit more freewheeling. we plan for 300-350 miles per day.
