Driving route from Colorado Springs to Oklahoma City

I am leaving in the morning heading out pulling my 5th wheel going towards Oklahoma City. I realize I will not make it in one day but would love to hear from anyone on which route is the most comfortable/enjoyable.

I see map quest suggested I25 to Amarillo then I40 to OKC.

I did post before going to Dumas TX first then onto OKC...

Any thoughts would love app appreciated

Thanks

I might try some of the surface roads and head more SE route rather than 25 south and 40 east. We did 87 through Dalhart and up to Trinidad. Flat country and the roads are wide with big shoulders. Only reason we were in Dalhart was the feed lots to check on beef cattle there. Flies were terrible but the trip thru there was interesting. Saved a lot of miles cutting NW. Lot of irrigation farming make the area more bearable than the deserts that we really dislike traveling through.

See if this map would work - appears to be pretty easy - We have generally avoided the I's - https://binged.it/32VuN5S

Best of Luck,

I live in Colorado Springs and often drive to south Texas. I go through Amarillo.

If I were going to OKC and just wanted to get there I would:
  • Drive I25 to Raton, NM
  • At Raton I would take US 87 to Amarillo through Dumas
  • At Amarillo I would get on I40 to OKC!

This shows on google maps to be about 9 and 1/2 hours. It isn't interstate all the way but it is 4 lane (minimum) divided highway all the way.

I might go another way if I wanted to sight see!

Very good choice and have made the same trip numerous times

Dumas is a good spot for a meal break if it fits
