Columbus, OH to Oklahoma City, OK

We just travelled Oklahoma City to NE Ohio on I-44 through St. Louis to I-70 through Illinois and Indiana. The roadways in St. Louis and Illinois and Indiana were so bad that it caused damage to the dashboard in the RV. We're looking for roads in better shape for our return trips. We are thinking of 2 alternate routes, both will be on I-71 from Columbus, OH to Louisville, KY. From Louisville, we have the following options:

1. I-64 to I-255 south around St. Louis and I-44 on.
2. I-65 south of Louisville to Nashville, then pick up I-40 through Memphis and Arkansas to Oklahoma City.

My question is has anyone recently travelled either of these routes and can provide input on the roadway surfaces?

Travelling in 37' Diesel pusher, no toad.

Thanks. Rick

IMO, I would drive I70 to St. Louis. I64 through the junction with I65 is under construction, and can get congested any time of day. This website may be useful: One Stop Shop for Traveler Information
