Nothing real close on the west side but there are a couple of places close to the state line in Alabama.

Excellent choice of times. Straight through on I-20 just watch the speed on the area between the 75/85 Connector and I-285. Lot of quick little curves that you cannot see what is ahead because of the median wall. There are several truck stops between Atlanta and the Alabama state line, or the Welcome Station as you go into Alabama allows overniting

West Georgia Campground

About the only campground between Atlanta and the Alabama state line is the Yogi Bear Jellystone campground. It is at exit 9, Bremen exit. If you are a Good Sam member or a Passport America member you can get the info in their directory. Passport America or Good Sam discount. They have 62 pull thru sites. The only other campground between Atlanta and Birmingham that accommodate a MH is the Kudzu Campground near the Talladega Speedway and requires reservations but can accommodate any size MH. Also has Passport America discount. Check with the dealer where you are picking up the MH and they should be able to give you directions.
Good luck, I hope the weather will agree with your travels. This time of year it can be iffy.
I almost forgot. You said you will be coming through Atlanta in the wee hours of the morning. There is a Pilot Truck Stop at Exit 19 and a Loves Truck Stop, exit 9, the same exit as the campground. And Walmart Supercenters at Douglasville, exit 34 and Bremen, Exit 11.

Back to Arkansas

Are you planning to take US78/I-22 from Birmingham to Memphis. It is a couple hundred miles of Interstate highway. I've driven it a number of times and doesn't have as much heavy truck travel. It isn't quite complete to I-59 in Birmingham. It has been a couple years since I traveled that route. It lacks about 5 miles of being complete, mainly the interchange at I-59. Scheduled to be open around September 2014.

To get on US78/I-22 in Birmingham go north on I-59 to Exit 264 (41st Ave). Go west on 41st Ave about a mile to Coalburg Road and go north about 5 miles and you can get on US78/I-22 west from there. It should be marked. Get a good map. The Alabama state map sucks.

If you take it just check your fuel supply as not very many interchanges are developed yet in Alabama. Once you get into Mississippi it shouldn't be a problem. The bad part of this route is when you cross into Tennessee. The divided four lane ends just as you get to Memphis and your are dumped off onto city streets and traffic lights.

Rather than go straight into Memphis you may want to get off of US78 at exit 2 in Mississippi and take Route 302 west to I-55 and then North on into Memphis to miss the city traffic (fewer traffic lights). And then from I-55 north to I-40 west and home.

I presume the total length of I-22 will be quite a while away for now. Plans are for it to run diagonally across Georgia to join I-16 at Macon, GA.
When that happens it will be a very heavily traveled route because of the cargo coming out of the Port of Savannah. It will take a lot of travel time off of the truckers headed to the Midwest.
