I've driven from central Mich (Clare) to Daytona/Orlando and back at least 10 times pulling a 3500lb trailer. At this point we don't care about scenery. I-10/I-75 has good road surfaces, is the shortest and fastest for us. I-95, I-26 is more scenic and of course the grades are much steeper and more of them. It's been 2 years since we went that way, but the roads seemed good. As you already stated, Atlanta can be a nightmare, as is Cincinnati. We leave Fl on a Friday and stop short of Atlanta for the night. Last trip we did the speed limit all the way through Atlanta Sat morning with no delays. Stop short of Cinnci for the night, sail right through Sunday morning. Of course if you take I-275 to I-74, you by-pass Cinnci.
If you are considering I-24 out of Chattanooga to I-65 and home, don't. I-65 will beat you to death! IF they ever fixed it, I would prefer it to I-75. Haven't ran I-74 out of Cinnci, but I-69 is fine out of Indy to BC.
