Hwy 65/69 South

I'm thinking of taking Hwy 65/69 south from I90 in Minnesota south to I40 in Arkansas in a 37' gas motorhome is this a good route. Or would Hwy 63 south be better?

90 to 65 will take you through Chicago and east to Indianapolis, where you'll have to catch 70 and go back west to catch 57. Unless you like driving out of your way to fight through all the road construction, I would catch 39 near Madison, WI and head south and avoid the congestion. Just watch out for the traffic around the Wisconsin Dells area.

63 is a better road than 65/69. It has been updated in many parts it is 4 lane. However as with most Hiways that are not interstates, it has its moments! I have not traveled it to the north of I80 for several years and cannot give good advice there. From I 80 to the Branson area it is generally good.
My assumption is you are attempting to not drive interstate. I35 would be better and 71 south of KC is good road as well. Below Carthage I have only been on 71 once and cannot remember it.
Not knowing your final destination I can also reccomend you look at the Avenue of the Saints. That is St Paul to St Louis. It consists of Going thru Waterloo, Ia and down thru I318 skirting Cedar Rapids, South on 218 to Hiway 61. This will get you to I70 about 40 miles west of St Louis on very good HiWays that are mostly 4 lane.
