Its good Vermont country road. I usually go up VT 7 even though it goes through more little towns.

I've pulled our now gone 33 foot and our current 38 foot 5er down that road. Decent, somewhat twisty and with a few hills but can be narrow in places. If you have any background hauling a 5er, wont be a problem. If worried, you can always wander I-87 to Exit 31, then to Westport, continue North to Essex then take the ferry for $38 to Charlotte, VT.

Yes, this trip the 5ers back bumper was hanging over the 'stern' by a couple feet:

Just towed a 27' TT across VT on Rt. 7 two weeks ago. Unless you really want to see the mountain scenery, that route may not be worth the driving stress. Up wasn't too bad, it was the downhill curves that were the worst.

There's a bypass around Bennington now, so the only significant towns you go through are Wilmington and Brattleboro. I considered a stop in Wilmington, but parking would have to be off-street. Not worth it.

Roger - you are talking about the wrong part of the state for the OPs question and from Glens Falls, NY to Burlington, VT. Bennington is way South(near the Mass border) and Brattleboro is on the Eastern most side/Conn. River, I-91 just across from New Hampshire. You don't go anywhere near Wilmington unless you go across Routes 9 or 100

Bennigton to Bratleboro is Rt 9, not 7.

The roads you are considering routinely handle 48 and 52 ft trailers behind a semi.

AAARRRGGGHHH!!! I always get Rt. 7 and Rt. 9 mixed up, because NY 7 becomes 9 in VT. My bad.

I understand that all too well. I commuted from NY Capital District to Southern Maine on a weekly basis so got to understand a few of the Vermont roads all too intimately as it was my 'alternate' route.

Actually what may the better way for the OP to go from Glens Falls to Burlington is to follow NY 149 to Ft Ann then US 4 into Rutland next taking US 7 North if he has any question about 22A and hauling a 5er and finding out it's often a road used by the local farmers and their tractors or large farm trucks. Not a bad thing in itself but it can make for a v-e-r-r-y long trip on occasion

I lived in central VT for 40+ years and my choice would be 22a over 7 any day. Less traffic and fewer 30 mph areas. The farmers are few and far between these days, so they won't hold you up much. You will get a taste of 7 anyway, because 22a only goes to Ferrisburgh and you will have to take 7 to get to Burlington from there.

I suggest you make a several day stop over in NH! The White Mountains area has a lot to offer.

It depends on what you want to see and do. If you want a quick tour haul the superslabs to Fonda or Amsterdam NY then head for Glens Falls and head for Burlington. Go across Vermont to St Johnsbury to Fryeburg ME. From there head for the coast and Freeport to check out LL Bean. Then head up to Bar Harbor. That will run you through several areas where you might want to spend a day tripping around the area to go to things like Ben and Jerry's, Mt Washington, Bean, the Maine Coast, etc. When you head home run down the coast around Boston to the Mass Pike. Once back across the Hudson head home as you desire. That will give you a lot of opportunity to see what is there. Two weeks is not much time to see the whole thing.
