I go to Huntington from Columbia using the same basic route as option 3 in my mh. A few small towns to go through but no problems.

WOW! You're right! Thanks for responding. How is SC-151 pulling a 5th wheel? Are there any low clearances? Is this a curvy, hilly highway? Sometimes it is best to take the long way around to save a lot of trouble?

We live in Florence, SC and are in the Huntington Beach/Brookgreen Gardens area fairly often. The run from Florence to Conway is a breeze and in Conway you have two options... take 701 into Georgetown and come up the coast to the State Park (the loooong way) or take 544 into Surfside and go down Hwy 17 to the park (which will be on your left..) Either is a breeze.

SC 151 will bring you thru McBee into Darlington and then into Florence and it's an easy run from outside of the Charlotte area into here.

Hope this makes sense....

Good luck, and safe travels!

Sorry, I cannot help you with your whole route as my direct experience is across 40, down 95 exiting at Sc34 (I think, there is a Flying J and a Hess at the exit usually the lowest cost fuel). It is probably the 2nd or 3rd exit after South of the Border

That exit/highway turns into 501 and then I take 544 it is signed but you turn right after Conway National Bank)and it takes you to the Kings Highway (17) where I turn left to go to Myrtle Beach State Park and you would turn right to go to Huntington.

I always used this route when I had my 5ver.

After you turn right and pass Surfside Beach (I used to live there) there is Kroeger, Bi Lo and I think a new Walmart with good parking lots and grocery shopping.

I have never stayed at Huntington, always Myrtle Beach State Park

My biggest concern is with up and down inclines. I would like to avoid as much mountainous travel as possible. Anyone know which would be the best alternative?

I took option 2. I was concerned with pulling the mountain up into NC and then with the 6% down grade out of Asheville. This was the time pulling the 5th wheel over the mountain with our 1500. It handled even better that I could have hoped for. We are right on the verge of being overloaded. We averaged about 12 mpg staying at 60 mph. I couldn't ask for a better setup for traveling.
