I95 Corridor south bound between New Brunswick NJ And South Carolina advice with 32'

I have a trip planned to pick up a recently purchased #2'Travel Trailer in Central NJ that I would like to take the shortest route home because I have to rent a Tow Vehicle at $75 a day, I haven't run up or down I95 since 2002 anyone have any experience lately with this Area of I95 expecially towing a RV? Any advice on areas to avoid and times? Any construction I need to be aware of? I will be aproxamatly 45' Tow Vehicle and Trailer if the rental company gives me the 3/4 TON Silverado they said they would, I want to plan it out to avoid rush times and know when to avoid certain areas, so I can plan rests stops and how long I have. A lot could have changed in the metro area like DC since 2002, any information about the current conditions of my route will be greatly apreciated.

One more question any high wind areas I need to be aware of? That's my biggest concern if the weather is bad. Thanks everyone. ☺

We have been taking 13 thru Delaware and going across the Chesapeake Bridge. There are a few stop lights, but there aren't any tractor trailers or heavy traffic to fight. It may be a slower route if 95 doesn't have traffic, but the trip is more pleasant than passing closer to DC. So much less stress.

The two tunnels in Baltimore your not suppose to take propane tanks through.
13 previously mentioned is a nice ride.
I've taken 301 through DE an MD to avoid the Baltimore tunnels, there is a highway in Baltimore that goes around the tunnels. I just prefer the ride down 301

Hopefully you're not dragging a 32' through New Brunswick, NJ - my 3 sons were born there and it's a tight city to navigate with a truck/trailer combo.

Tell me where exactly you're going and I can draw of the 50+ year of Jersey experience to help you out. Also let us know what town in SC you're headed to.

Like others have said, you can't take propane through the Baltimore tunnel and you have to loop around 695 to take the Key Bridge.

I forget the exact name of the storage place it's on US 1 I was thinking of working my way up to I78 instead heading to I81 there are a lot more hills to deal with I know but a lot less headaches, I'm going to Oconee county SC about 20 miles west of I85, I remember NJ well I didn't live there as long as you I moved away in 1984, I was born and raised in Elizabeth and had relatives in Old Bridge Township, so I know the narrow roads well at least what I remember, I remember driving from Old bridge to NYC everyday to go to Apex Tech dealing with US 1-9 the Pulaski Skyway the. The tunnel of my choice into Manhattan unless I took the train . I was afraid of what may have changed up there from the looks of North Brunswick from Google Earth a lot has changed since I lived there I can't even find the street I lived on in Old Bridge, I know I wasn't far from English Town Raceway all my friends used to go there some including myself were trying to build drag cars, those were the days I miss the 1970 Dodge Coronet 500 I had then :( this is a trip down memory lane for me.

I81 - Rt 301 Maryland Eastern Shore - Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel - take time to look at the options on these three, otherwise time your trip to avoid TRAFFIC in Baltimore and Washington, DC

BOL,

Quickest way... 95 to the NJ Turnpike then take the exit for Rte 1 in Brunswick. (*noting that you must take 695 to avoid the tunnel in Maryland). Obviously, DC is always at varying degrees of heavy traffic, try to avoid at peak commuter rush hour times. I've lived in Jersey most of my life, know that area well & drive the area regularly, you'll be fine if you stick to 95,turnpike & Rte 1. Returning back, Rte 1, NJ Turnpike to 95. All major roadways, won't be a problem.

FYI, when returning from Rte 1, you'll follow the signs for the Turnpike. It will take you onto Rte 18 for a quarter mile then take the Turnpike... Easy!

Well Richmond can be bypassed, DC and Baltimore are the typical trouble spots. Try to avoid these areas between 7am and 9am and 4-6pm. Not much has changed other than there are more bad drivers
