US Hwy 2 from Maine to New York

I would like to drive my class A motor home (37 foot diesel pusher) from the Canadian border at Houlton, ME to Rouses Point, NY; i.e. from Maine through New Hampshire and Vermont to New York. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of what I face if I make this trip? Thanks.

I live approx 1 hr south of Rouses Point, we take at least one trip to Maine every year and travel route 4 east through Vermont 89s to 93s through New Hampshire to 95. Its easy driving and all highway. I am not familiar with route 2 but some parts of Vermont are tough to get through with all the covered bridges and roads without posted weigh limits. good luck

Headed from Buffalo Ny to Bar Harbor Maine, VIA Hwy 2

This helps put my mind a little more at ease, wondering how rough the road is, or if there is any real concerns with loosing up everything along the way?

Really hoping to look like this guy along the way.

Rt 2 from Burlington to Bangor is a very nice ride..... Just don't get caught behind an RV driving 45 mph (I did it on motorcycles)
