Mass to Fl

We are planning the first long trip in our MH. Class c going from Mass to Fl. Location in FL unknown as of yet. In the past have driven the car mostly on 95. This past trip saw some of the tunnels have warning of no propane. So my question is what route to take?

Hi edrayman,
The decision all depends on how much time you have and do you want to stop along the way. Only the tunnel in Baltimore prohibits propane. Just take the beltway instead of I95 in Baltimore and you'll be fine.

There are 3 route possibilities:
1. I81 to I77 to I26 to I95
2. I81 to I75
3. I95

Sometimes it depends on where you'll end up in Florida. Sometimes it depends on what you want to stop and see along the way. I almost always take choice #1.

Ditto on Gary's suggestion of I81 to I77 to I26 to I95 if you're going to Jacksonville or further south. The Baltimore tunnel is the only one I know of that won't allow propane and you'd miss that with the foregoing route.

We've been taking a slight variation...
I84 west to Scranton, PA
I81 south to Harrisburg, PA
I83 south toward Baltimore
I695 southwest (inland Beltway around Baltimore)
I95 south from there

NOTE: you will still need to get around DC traffic using this plan.

We chose this path for three reasons
It eliminates all east coast tolls
except MassPike if needed and NY bridge over hudson
It gets us back to 95 and civilization sooner than other popular routes
It avoids most of the Appalacian mountains
except for distance between Scranton and Harrisburg.

It adds a little time to the trip but eliminates traffic delays

Good Luck
