Best Route NE to Central Florida 41' 5th Wheel

We will be traveling from New Hampshire to Central Florida in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on the best route. Would like to avoid NYC and DC if possible. Also is there any issues with having propane or should I empty the tanks first?

The way we travel up to your area and back in the summer is :
Get on the Mass Pike, go to I-84, go to I-81, go to I-77, go to I-26, go to I-95.... then depending on where you are heading in Fl, if you are going to the east coast, stay on 95, if you are heading to the west coast, get off I-95 and get on US 301 which will hook you up with I-75. This route avoids the messes around NYC,DC,Maryland. No issues with propane either .

This exactly the route we take when we leave the Seacoast of NH going to SWFL. We are 45' long and pulling a truck. Another possible alternative is to cross the Tappanzee and take 78 to 81. I will never go 95 or cross the GWB again in a motorhome.

I know there are two other threads going on this right now but I don't want to hijack them. Here are the routes I've come up with, please tell me what you think.

I would suggest two changes.

1. Don't go 84 out of Hartford. Take the 91/691 bypass which goes through Meriden to 84 and on to Danbury. It's shorter in time and the road from Harford south is narrow, twisty and very crowded.

2. Don't go through Washington. If you want to pick up 95 sooner rather then later go past Winchester, VA and take 66 east to rt 17 to 95. We do that occaisionly, but the traffic on 95 south of DC can be bad for quite some distance. You may be better off going down 84 to 77 to n26 to 95.

Are you related to the Huff moving people?

Here's what we do. I/84 to I/91-691 to I/84 To PA. If the weather is fine stay on I/84 to Scranton and take I/81 south to I/77 in Wythville, VA. Then I/77 to I/26 to I/95 in SC. If the weather is "iffy" get off the first exit in PA (53) and take US 209 to PA 33 to I/78 to I/81. This avoids all of PA's mountains, fog, ice & snow, or at least it's a flat ride. It also takes the same amount of time.
