I know your going to inundated with suggestions but here's a couple of mine.
Stay at Bay View Campground in Bourne, MA. Drive your toad to the ferry & park it or put it on the ferry ( I parked & rented a new Mercedes SUV for $55.00 on Martha's Vineyard ) You will see why the Kennedy's call this place home, it's unbelievably beautiful.
Then go north to Arcadia & Keenebuckport.

You didn't mention what time of the year. The campgrounds in the new England area start closing down late in the fall.

And you need to take into consideration Leaf Peepers. Everybody heads up into that area for the fall colors so reservations are suggested.

Cherry Hill in Washington DC area is great.

Home - Normandy Farms This place is excellent.

Not trying to hijack Steve but, heading East also this Summer, and have a question about going to Independence Historic park to see the Liberty bell, What is the best way to get there? were is a good place to park the Rv and what transportation is best to get to the park? Don't know if I need a Gc or can just park at a train or bus terminal? Going to try and make this stop coming from NYC on our way to Gettysburg.

Don't miss Annapolis, MD. Very few RV Parks but find a way. Normandy Farms, south of Boston is a fine place with a Concierge who can steer you to the Subway to Boston which is not far. Forget Kennebunkport, or just drive thru, but don't miss Boothbay Hahbah, and as long as you're out East, don't miss Cooperstown, New York and the Baseball Hall of fame. We loved the Catskills, the Hudson River Valley (Rip Van Winkle land). In the autumn, it's right up there with all of New England and almost as pretty as West Michigan in the Fall.

I'll disagree with Michguy

We loved Kennebunkport. Stayed at Red Apple CC. But he is right on about Annapolis, but don't miss West Point. They have a big parking lot for buses and RVs. You can take a 2 or 4 hour tour and keep right on going.

May want to stop at Liberty Park right across from lower Manhatten. Ferry to NYC, tors and Broadway tickets right there. Cost of about $80 per night beats $350 a night in the city plus great views from the park. Enjoy.

There is only one city, it goes from Rockport MA, about 80~120 miles from the coast to Richmond VA.

I sent a lot of my younger life in the megapolis until I got the first couple of degrees and a license. As we had family, we still had to go back from time to time. You will find that the urban areas are very non-friendly to coaches. The truck routes work, but the cities are crazy and it gets worse as you go north.

If there is someplace you want to tour, find out about local public transportation. DC, Philly, NYC and Boston are all good. For others, rent a car. Before you go, find out if your own car insurance covers rental cars, many do and if yours does, don't pay for it. Don't rent a car in RI. They used to have a HUGE rental car tax there.

DO NOT even try to drive across NYC. Go north to the Tappen Zee bridge and find your way across the Hudson with that.
