Traveling through Wyoming, Nebraska to Iowa

We plan on traveling From Montana (Billings) to Iowa (Cedar Rapids/Davenport) around the end of July in our Class A (2-3 week round trip). The last time we made the trip we traveled down I-90 (hated the wind in South Dakata and the rough interstate in Iowa. We thought about going down I-90 to I-25 to I-80 through Wyoming and Nebraska ease the pain of fighting wind and rough roads? How are the camp grounds in Nebraska or Wyoming? Any advise or is July and August the worst time to travel in these states?

IMHO I would say December and January is the worst time to travel in those states.
The time of year is a factor of natures beauty, Annual events that happen in cities, and where the crowds are. What are you wanting to see (places of interest) and experience is the question at hand as it points the direction to where (geographical location) to camp and how long. However if you're just driving thru these state to get from point A to point B, then that too makes a difference.

I have travelled from Cheyenne through Iowa many times.

Places to see as you travel I-80:

If you are a train buff a) In Cheyenne there is an enormouss steam engine in the city park just east of downtown on Lincolnway and b) just west of North Platte, NE there is a gigantic high tech switching facility

If you like Sports business: there is a a great store (and campground) at Cabella's in Sidney, Nebraska

There are two great public campgrounds along I-80 in central Nebraska ... one at the Gibbon exit (Windmill rec area) and one at Grand Island interchange (Mormon Island) ... both have sites that you can treat as pull throughs ... we stay there as often as possible

At Kearney, NE there is a great museum of the westward expansion of the United States ... plan on at least 2 hours for this ...

You can avoid downtown Omaha and Council Bluffs by taking I-680 (it is about 10 miles further but worth it in my opinion)

You will most likely encounter orange barrels ... the traffic is squeezed down to a single lane but the traffic generally moves along nicely. There are lots of 18 wheelers on I-80 east of Ogallala, NE to Chicago.
