Arizona to Ohio - Best route for December

We are leaving Apache Junction, Az on December 8th and traveling to Canton, Ohio. We're looking at Interstate 10 to I20 then taking 20 to Dallas then either taking 20 to Alabama or Rt 30 to Tennessee. Does anyone have experience with these routes?

Thanks
Ron

Route selection depends entirely on the weather and road conditions the morning day of travel. It's been my experience that traveling interstates has been normal East of Albuquerque some winters, and other times anything North of the TN Southern border is questionable because some of TN does not have the equipment to handle snow/ice on the roads.
The day before, phone the state patrols road conditions hot-line and listen to the automated message.
Were it me, I would travel East as you say, and pick up I44 through OK, MO, then I70 to OH--IF weather reports permit.
For instance, last Jan 10 we headed home from Key West. Got stopped by weather and ice in Birmingham, AL, so we stayed at Dothan, AL for 2 weeks until roads improved enough we could drive to Indiana, which itself was clear of bad weather.

I've drove the Phoenix to Houston along I-10 portion of you route last December in our 36' Winnebago Chieftain. It was an uneventful drive, with no road challenges or weather issues. An excellent choice.

Sorry, can't help with the rest of the route.

Thanks, some good ideas and we appreciate it. We'll keep our fingers crossed for a mild winter!

We picked up our RV in Apache Junction also, but at the end of winter in April, 3 years ago. We snowbird up and down the I-65 corridor each year to avoid the hills and traffic of the interstates further east. Once you get to I-65 you can take it up to Louisville, and pick up I-71 to Cincinnati, C'bus, etc.
Safe travels!
Bob

I would take I20 to Dallas and start watching the weather. I30 from Dallas to Little Rock and I40 to just west of Memphis.... there I would cut north on I55 and work my way north. Just remember that southern states do not have the resources if the weather turns bad, and you could be halted anywhere along the route. Fortunately, December is not a bad weather month in the south.... most of the time.
