Route from South Jersey to Magnolia Texas.

Looking for suggestions on routes and places to stop on the way. We are traveling in August 2014 so we have plenty of time to figure it all out. We will be pulling a 29' Jayco TT. We are traveling from Tuckerton, Nj to Magnolia, Tx. Looking to make it in 3 days if possible. This will be our farthest trip to date so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Steve.

You have to first decide if you are just wanting to "get there" or if you want to see the country along the way. Interstates or state highways. Good Sam has a travel service that can help, as can most GPS units. The short route or the scenic one. There is a lot to see on a trip like that.
Good luck with it and have fun.

At 550 to 600 miles a day over 3 days, I doubt you have much time for sightseeing. Because I've done the run from Ohio to Texas so many times, I'd elect to catch I-40 from Knoxville to Little Rock, I-30 from Little Rock to Texarkana, then down US59 to the Houston area as opposed to the southern route down to I-10.

Thanks for the responses so far. Just to be a little more clear. The goal for the trip down is to just get there. We will be stopping for some sightseeing on the trip back.
Steve.

While in the area, DO NOT stay at Magnolia Country (Hockley address). What a dump a few years back.

Just remember August is a pretty warm part of the year here in this part of Texas, make sure your A/C units are in good shape :-)

Thanks for that Ken. We are actually staying on my brothers property. He has full hookup there and ready for us to pull in and enjoy.

Thanks Steve. All working great before shutting down for the winter. Have weekend trips planned starting in May and I will make sure everything is in tip top shape before taking that long trip.

My S&B is just outside of Magnolia in Hockley although I am up in Ohio right now. I recommend Rusty's directions from above as the best route to take. Ken is correct as well, but your staying at your brothers. Using that route, there is so much to see on the way back, stop by and see if Elvis is home in Memphis..... It is HOT HOT in August though! Good Luck!

After looking at the different options I think we are going to take I95 to I85 to I10. We are planning on two overnight stays on the way down. First night at Anderson/Lake Hartwell KOA in SC. And the second at Baton Rouge KOA in LA. Any info on that route or the campgrounds would be greatly appreciated.

I have taking the I10 route many of times and all I can say is good luck with I-10 in LA, it is an aweful drive with a RV!

I may not have a choice on the I10 route at least on the way down. We are planning a quick stop to see some family just outside of Gulfport ms. Can you give me some details about how bad the road is. I have never traveled that far south.
