Towing a 29' TT, I'm guessing you want interstates. The following route keeps you out of the Washington, DC area where there is always construction and heavy traffic.

I-70 Breezewood to Hagerstown, MD. (several grades)
I-81 to Staunton, VA (wait for gas until VA, not MD or WVA)
I-64 to Richmond, VA (one long grade)
I-295 around Richmond to I-95 on the south side of town
I-95 thru NC and into SC
US 501 (just north of Florence, SC) to Myrtle Beach.

Construction is anybody's guess and there are campgrounds all along this route. Not knowing your tastes, I'll let you decide from the various CG sources.

If you have a smart phone, you may want to consider loading the Allstays Camp & RV app.

I use my Maps app to determine my route, then I use the Allstays Camp & RV app to find all the campsites at the locations I may stop along the way. It also shows you where to find Wall Mart, Costco, Sam's, Flying J/Pilot, etc.

We have traveled from Rochester, NY to Myrtle Beach for years. We developed our favorite route and it avoids all heavily populated areas.
Take I-81S to the Front Royal Exit 300.
Merge onto I-66 East for 28 miles to Exit28 to merge onto US-17S/Winchester Rd.
17S will take you right onto I-95 at Fredericksburg.
Take Virginia Exit 84A to the I-295 Bypass around Richmond which will put you back on I-95.
We often stay at Rock Ridge Campground, 7030 Rock Ridge School Rd, Sims, NC 27880 252 - 291 - 4477. (NC Exit 121 from I-95) It's about 5 1/2 hours into your trip and a little over 3 hours to Ocean Lakes Campground. Nice folks run it and you may meet the resident ostrich.
Back onto I-95 and in South Carolina take Exit 181A to put you Southeast bound on 501 to 544 which happen to take you right to the front gate of Ocean Lakes Campground.
You can map it easily on Google Maps.
Have a great trip!

Good info - Plan for fuel in Va. and S.C. We stay at RV Resort at Carolina Crossing. It is right off I-95 right after entering NC (exit 176 I think). They have a $30 flat rate for arrivals after 6PM - all transit sites are pull-thru with full hookups (and pet friendly). Honor system after about 7PM. We have stayed there at least 6 times.
Our other overnight option is RVacation about 1/2 through NC (I95 exit 98). $25 w/e - call ahead on this one they fill up fast after noon. It's an old well maintained ex-KOA. We've stayed here 3 or 4 times.

Welcome to RVacation RV Park
Lots of Wal-Mart/Cracker Barrel/Loves/Flying J's but for the money I use these.
There are red lights and construction along Rt 17 until spring - no hold-ups, also the ramp Rt17 to I95 at Fredericksburg is a PIA. I95 Traffic is also bad for about 15 miles (Washington DC commuters) so you would want to time it to avoid 4PM to 7 PM. (I live in this area).

We left Quakertown, PA and now in Charleston, SC. We traveled on 13 through Deleware, Maryland and VA. Traveled mostly on 17 to SC.

This route does take you on Chesepeake Bay bridge. Our first trip on the bridge and through the tunnels.

The roads were great and traveled through many towns which was easy access to gas.

We have 30ft class c with tow.

We loved this route.
