If you are looking for a neat way to make the trip take the Garden State Pkwy to the bottom and cross the Delaware bay on the Cape May/Lewes ferry it's about a 1 1/2hr trip. Call ahead to make reservations. There is no problem getting on or off the ferry. I've done it several times with my 43' and toad. Considering the tolls I save, and the gas I don't use, it's almost the same cost as driving. Also there is no traffic this way. Plus you get a nice boat ride.

Agree, Tony, that's a nice way to do it if you're headed to Bethany Beach or Ocean City MD area. Just make sure you check the schedules - if you miss the last boat, it's a long night..

I agree with TonyDi the Cape May / Lewes Ferry is the way to go. You can check the fares and schedule at Cape May-Lewes Ferry Home. When you make a reservation you still have to get there an hour ahead of time but generally the RV's and any Tractor Trailers are loaded first in the center bay and you get off right away. The fare might seem to be a little steep but like Tony said it works out to be close to the same. Even more savings if you are going further south coming from the tolls in MD and DE on I-95 it is a nice trip through Delmarva and over the Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel bringing you to I-95 just above the NC border.

That's a very interesting idea. Not sure I can get there from home in one day to make the ferry, but maybe a night on the Jersey shore. Any idea of cost, is it just by length? (Been looking at their web site)

It is by length - towing a dingy you should be in the 45' to 60' rate which includes the driver - you have to pay for each passenger and the rate depends on the season. Plenty of campgrounds in Cape May County - for a quick list try this link Cape May County, NJ - Official Website

I learned a long time ago that the best way to vaca with an RV is to book an extra day which when you factor the cost versus stress is reasonable. I leave early like 10 pm at night so the traffic is much lighter than during the day. I get to the site but late on the extra day I booked so I am there the night or real early the day of my actual trip. I keep the truck connected and get some sleep then setup camp and I have the rest of the day to have fun instead of being tired. It does depend on you and whether you care about traffic, etc.
