route suggestions - central Indiana to Washington DC

We are planning to drive to Washington DC for spring break with our kids this year. Most of our trips with our motorhome have been relatively short drives (4-6 hrs) on the flat highways in the midwest. I've looked at the maps a few times trying to pick the "flattest" route to DC for us. We will be going out I-70, but have a choice to make when we get to PA and I'm looking for recommendations.

Would I-79 south to I-68 and across to I-70 be an easier/flatter drive than taking I-70/I-76/Penn Turnpike all the way out?

Thanks in advance,

last year we came back I79/68 route from the DC area. you do havesome mountains, but no issue. the view is great on that lower route, plus you save the tolls on the PAPike.

Avoid the tolls, my experience is that toll roads really get you in an motorhome. The hills are not that bad and the scenery is great.
