Any travel routes to avoid?

We have been just traveling from Iowa to Florida and back. We now want to do some travel to the pacific northwest and New England areas. We have a 37ft fifth wheel and were wondering if there a some areas where we might run into problems with this size rig.
Any comments would be welcome on this.
Thanks
Bob

"The Pacific Northwest and New England areas" is mighty broad territory...care to narrow the question down a little?

Stay away from Highway 58 between Eugene and Klamath Falls, Oregon, at least at night. Road closed from 8pm to 6am, I believe.

Wards Ferry road in CA is a good one to avoid.

Most RV parks are listed on internet and numerous books. Those sources will give you all the info you need. In general, most RV parks west of the Mississippi can handle large RVs.

Thanks. We will look at available sources and plan our route. We can always drop the 5er and explore from there.

If near the Smoky's, (border of TN & NC) Route I-40 just east of the Smoky National Park is curvy as _ _ _ _ (fill in the blank)

Avoid the causeways to Jekyll and Saint Simons Islands in GA. It will be better there than much of FL and save you hundreds of miles.
