Route in CT

We'll be driving a 36ft. motorhome w/towd from Versailles, CT, to Waterbury, CT, but we're not familiar with the roads. The online mapping program shows taking I-395 to Rt. 2 up to Hartford and then I-84 down to Waterbury.
But, there's a Rt. 66 that goes west off Rt. 2 and connects with I-691 to Waterbury that looks shorter.
Is Rt. 66/I-691 a good road, or should we just stay on Rt. 2 all the way up to Hartford and back down I-84? Don't particularly relish driving the coach on back roads.
Appreciate any advice anyone can offer.

Rt 66 is hilly from Colchester to Meriden. Go 395 to 2 to I-84. Better roads. just watch Hartford between 7 to 9 am & 3 to 5:30 pm. JM2...

I grew up in that area. While Rt. 66 won't cause any problems, staying on the highway is going to be a faster way to go.

Thanks all. Think we'll take your advice, skip Rt. 66 and stick to Rt. 2 and the interstates.
