Driving to Long Island

We've been invited to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with relatives who live in South Bay Shore, NY. Now, being a transplanted Jersey boy, I've driven most of those roads, bridges and tunnels in the past, but never with my 33ft Allegro. Last time we were up there in the car, we took the Verazano Narrows Bridge, South Bay Shore, Belt Pkwy, etc out to South Bay Shore but I can't take the rig on most roads. I'm considering going on the GW bridge, then the LIE, but have not made up my mind. We would drive the car, but there is not enough room in the house. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

My son in laws mom lives there and she has offered to install a 30 amp plug to use, which is a nice thing. The son in law knows that I baby my rig and don't want to take it to the vicinity of the Big Apple, but he says that the big trucks use these roads all the time. How can I argue with that!

The GW bridge upper deck allows propane, so that is where you want to be. I continued to the LIE, that was fine. I was going to Oceanside, so I had to get off a lot sooner than you would and had to take local roads which had clearance for our MH. I could not use any of the parkways because of their low clearance, but you may have better luck. The local streets (at least on the way to Oceanside) had lots of traffic and many unsynchronized traffic lights, so it was slow going.

If you do plan on attempting the parkways, do yourself a favor and measure the height of your MH so at least you will know exactly what clearance you need.

It also may help to use Google street view to do a virtual drive on your planned route.

Good luck, and have fun!
