NY/VT/NH..rt.7/9

Hello all, I am taking a trip from SC to Laconia NH this June and want to avoid the terrible roads in eastern NJ/NY and Ct. Thinking about taking 7 out of Albany across Vt. then 9 into NH. Has anyone driven a class A across this route? Any issues such as low clearances or other problems. Will be in a 37 foot "A" towning a 12' trailer with motorcycles.

You would be on 7 in NY, which becomes 9 in VT and continues to be 9 into NH. This is a scenic ride and will take some time. There should be no problems as to height. The trip from Bennington to Brattleboro has some pretty good hills, but are doable.

Another option that would be similar is a little farther north. From lake George 149 to 22 to 4 into Rutland VT and over to NH take 89 to 11 across NH right into Laconia.
Either route would be about the same type of 2 lane scenic roads.
As I recall the last time I was over route 9 it was pretty rough when you head up the hill east of Bennington but that was a couple years ago.

Yes I am, taking our Winnebago Adventurer up there to meet my two brothers, one of whom lives in CT as I used to. love the area and have enjoyed many trips throughout the Granite state on a motorcycle. This will be my first long haul trip in this RV and should be a great experience. I want to avoid the NYC/Fairfield County roads and traffic through Connecticut and that is why I am thinking about rt. 7/9. Have you experienced Laconia bike week??

No I have never been to Laconia during bike week. Have been to Aspencade in Lake George, close to home, but way too crowded for me!

Lots of nice rides in that area, the Kancamangus from Conway to Lincoln(on a bike), 302 is nice, plus lots more.

If you are not in a hurry route 9 will work hills and curves but it will be a nice ride and they just finished the bypass around Bennington which is narrow so that helps. Enjoy your trip!
