Best route from Los Angeles to Washington DC

We are planning a trip to the East Coast ultimate destination Conneticut, starting in early March 2016. What would be the best route for us. We have a 36 ft Pace Arrow pulling a Wrangler Jeep. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That early in the year I would stay as far south as I could, I 10, then as I got closer to the east coast head north on I 95. Keep checking weather updates!

Yeah. March can be unpredictable. Not sure I'd go as far east as I-95 before heading north. I'd probably pickup I-20E in Van Horn, TX., and take it to Atlanta where I'd get on I-85N which will run into I-95N south of Richmond. If you take that route I'd suggest taking I-295 around Richmond, and then get back on I-95 north of Richmond.

I hope you're making this a circular trip back to Los Angeles. That way you will be able to return in better weather and visit some of the awesome national parks in the West or go over to Washington and take Hwy 101 back down and explore the Oregon coast.

Leaving in March you'll definitely want to take I-10 across to avoid bad weather,

JONIGEEE , Was just curious, where abouts are you headed in Conneticut?
Wife and I have kin folk in a place called Milford. Current plans are to head out
in that general direction in late march / early April next year. We are coming out of a small town on Whidbey Island about 70 miles north of Seattle. We're rolling in a 24 ft Winnebago. After seeing a couple of sights we are interested in, plan to visit some folks near Omaha and in Missouri and then push on east.
Been to Milford by air and did the rental car thing. I have apps for RV parks but was wondering what your RV plans were. Didn't see many RV's while there a year ago. Also noted while in the Milford area, roads are narrow and twisty, as though left over from the revoloutionary war days. Some low over passes also.
With muy clearence being 10ft 6in gotta be carefull where I'm going when I get there. This is a round trip for us, so we're not pushing for time there or back.

Conneticut bound

We are visiting realatives in Waterbury and want to get there by the middle of April. We really don't have a special time to return back to Los Angeles so depending on the weather and urge to return home that will determine which route we take home. Should be interesting with 2 dogs, bob tailed cat and a canary in a motor home.

I know the weather in March can be questionable, but taking 81 north is significantly better than 95 weather permitting. Several options on getting up to 81, and again, weather permitting, you can cut up further west to pick up roads leading to 81 and avoid Atlanta too.

Regards

Only a suggestion but we traveled from Atlanta to Dallas and back last spring and found some of I20 can be very rough particularly parts of LA and MISS - just saying you might want to go a little farther north through some states if folks on this forum can ID some better roads. Happy Trails to you!
