Maryland to Wisconsin

We have a class A and are leaving for Wisconsin from Elk Neck State Park in Maryland. Any driving route recommendations or routes to avoid? We are really looking at height issues and tunnel issues as well. Thanks!

I suggest you go through Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, and Normal, IL and then head north on I-39 ... this will save you from the metropolitan Chicago traffic and tolls

In 2012 we headed out to SLC ,from about 30 miles due east of you. Took I-695 to I-70, I-70 to I-68, to I-79N into PA where we picked up I-70 again. Nice ride, piece of cake. We then stayed on I-70 out to Indianapolis, where he headed NW up I-74 to the Quad Cities for I-80. It looks to me, via GoogleMaps, that you'll pick up I-39 in Bloomington for the Northbound leg into Wisconsin.

I know a lot of folks don't like the Interstates, but my view is, if your destination REALLY is the destination, then you may as well get there as quickly as easily as possible. If you are 'touring', with no set schedule, and time to spend smelling the flowers, as it were, then the state roads are fine too.
Always remember, you're a unique individual - just like the other 7 billion people on the planet...

Do not take I94 through Chicago. I294 is a better route. The best route is I39 as stated above.

There is lots of construction happening on the Illinois toll roads this year.

Milwaukee construction is horrible! They don't like to use lots of paint to mark the lanes either. Take I39 to avoid Chicago and Milwaukee

+1 on the route as suggested by jiminjersey, with emphasis on the I70-I68-I79-I70 portion to avoid the PA Turnpike with its tunnels, tolls, and construction.
