US Border Crossing at Niagara Falls?

I am been concentrating on the Port Huron crossing and not thinking about when I cross back into the US. My GPS's show two different routes and two crossings.

Which one will be the best to take with a 41' motorhome plus a toad?

I am coming across Canada and crossing into Niagara Falls. One crossing is at Canada 405 onto I-190. The other one is the Rainbow Bridge.

I live in Niagara Falls, NY and travel to the Canadian side 7 or 8 times a year for hockey tournaments. I have crossed the border once in the RV as well. I always call this number 1-800-715-6722 before I go because it will give a traffic updates on the all the bridges every hour (both directions). It is very very very helpful on which way to cross because you will know before hand if a certain bridge has minimal to no delay or if you might be sitting in traffic for a while. There are 3 bridges you can cross. The 405 to I-90 bridge is the furthest north and is known as the Lewiston-Queenston bridge. I would recommend this one because it opens up to an interstate as soon as you cross. The Rainbow bridge will take you into downtown Niagara Falls. Doable in an RV but not as easy as the above bridge. The last bridge is the furthest south one and is the Peace bridge. This crossing will come across into Buffalo. I haven't not been on this one.

This is the one we took for the ease of getting on I-190. We are now at the KOA in Niagara Falls which is close to this bridge. Except for the rain it easy.

Thanks!!

After crossing the Rainbow Bridge twice with a tour group I am glad I took the Lewiston bridge. Lewiston was less congested and closer/easier to get to my campground.
