We took I-20 Vicksburg to Texas last Nov. It will let you know what it feels like to bottom out your suspension.We tried it because last year I-10 beat us to death, I-20 not much better.

We just returned from Az. on I-10 as far as 10 in La. From mile marker 22 to 27 is a little rough then from marker 101 to 118 at the long bridge is quite rough but the rest on to exit 166 where we get off was fine. But some of the highway in west Texas east of El Paso was just as rough as 10 in Louisiana.

We just (today) completed a drive from Psadena, Ca to Jacksonville, Fl on I10 - the only rough spot we found in Texas (if I recall) was west of Beaumont, and maybe a short stretch in the far west. And it only totaled MAYBE 5 miles total. The rest of the road through Texas was smooth asphalt with no potholes, ridges, grooves, etc.

As for Louisiana there is a small section east of Slidell that is still concrete, with expansion joints that are spaced such that our motorhome was moving up and down - it was by no means uncomfortable, just a gentle motion like a boat riding on some small swells. That lasted for maybe a mile.

Now if we could just send some of this rain back home to California! We were in New Orleans for 3 days and it rained the entire time! then it followed us all the way to Savanna, Ga (so far!) - I'm about ready to install pontoons on the RV!

I live in Lake Charles and travel I-10 from Houston to Baton Rouge a lot.
From Houston to Lafayette it's pretty smooth.
There is a couple of miles on the east side of the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge that is rough due to ill spaced expansion joints.
There is another rough patch east of the I-10/I-12/I-59 Jct. just before you get into Mississippi.
None of it is enough to warrant changing your route.

If you're not in a hurry Hwy 190 is a great stretch of road (2-lane mostly) and much more scenic than I-10.
Take Hwy 12 out of Vidor, Tx, which becomes Hwy 190 after you get into La.
