Best route to Bristol TN from Columbia SC?

Has anyone driven I-26 and if it's a good route for a 32-foot Class A gas to take all the way up to I-81 and then east on to Bristol?

Looks like it could be a bit rough between I-40 and I-81 in the Pisgah Nat'l Forest.

Thank you!

McGarrett

It's a beautiful drive. There are a couple of long up and down grades between Mars Hill, NC and Erwin, TN. If you are ok with taking you time then it's a beautiful area of the country.

Easy call: I-26 through Asheville, Johnson City to I-81 then North to Bristol. It is a beautiful drive. I believe it is the highest elevation of any Eastern US Interstate at around 4000 feet. The grades are not bad and it is not terribly curvy for a mountain road.

The alternative is I-26 to I-40 through the Pigeon River Gorge. Some pretty good pulls. Lots of truck traffic and very curvy. An accident or rock slide can close it for days.
