Mountains - No problem

I40 always the way I go

It's about 750 miles to Menphis about 12+ hours of driving
About 550 miles and about 8+ hours to Nashville

I drive slower than the speed limit so I usually get about 400/450 miles a day and of course stopping for fuel/lunch etc.

you can update your ''signature'' to include more info about your rv.
we usually wing it when picking overnight stops. we stop to eat and sleep on our way to a destination.
we like to stay in casino parking lots. most all indian casinos welcome rv's to park overnight. some of the other casinos welcome rv's too. there are directories for casino parking.
we use this allstays website extensively to find walmarts and other places that welcome rv's to park overnight. we always ask the store manager or security where to park.
there is a lot of info on this forum about parking protocol at walmart. use the search feature at the top of this page.
the allstays website is kept up to date by the users of the site.

Welcome aboard.
Use care and drive safel in the Pigeon River Gorge west of Waynesville. LOT of trucks and all are in a hurry. Don't worry about the tunnels, you will be fine. If the trucks make it through, so can you.
A CG directory is always a handy thing to have. Drive until you want to stop and then just find something close to your route. Give them a call and find out if they can accomodate you for the night. If not, look futher. This is just part of the adventure.

I live in Washington NC and when I travel I-40 west I turn North at Winston Salem and cross the mountains on I-77 through Fancy Gap. I then head West on I-81 at Wytheville Va. there is a Flying J at Wythville that we have overnighted at several times. It is only 26 miles futher, but is a muck eaiser drive than I-40 west of Asheville.
We have stayed in a RV park in Lebanon Tn. a few times and at the KOA in Nashville. There is a nice catfish restaurant next to the KOA. Last Summer we stayed at the Graceland RV park in Memphis. It is very near to Graceland so we walked to the visitors center from the park.
