If you are headed to MainE, then going up 95 to Bangor and down through Ellsworth will save you a great deal of time at this time of year. It's all highway. Way to many tourists on Rt #1. Then again, if you are from away and have plenty of time and money, please go up Rt #1 and stop at as many places as you can and spend as much money as you can. Plan on Moody's Dinner in Waldoboro for a good home style meal. Great desserts.
Don't forget, there is also a lot to see inland and upcountry as well. It's only about 400 miles from Kittery to Madawaska!

We just spent the fourth of July in backwoods campground in Acadia. Make sure that you really are 34 feet. They are sticklers and will measure you to the inch. Anything over 35' will be turned away. Our rig is exactly 34 feet and we were greeted by a woman ranger yelling out the window of the gate house to another ranger; "If he's one inch over 35', he's outta hear!" Not very welcoming. We fit fine and had a wonderful time. The tree clearance is rather low and you will get a few scrapes on your roof.

As far as getting there. The right hand turn in bar harbor is rather tight. We have a toad so we went around Bar Harbor center to Blackwoods.

Go route 1. Lots of things to see, traffic yes, but so interesting to see the small towns and the many shops, boats, harbours, and places to eat lobster. Enjoy the trip. I95 is the same in Florida as in Maine.
