Western NJ to Richmond VA

Hello, we are traveling to Richmond, VA next week.
This is the route we have used in years past with our travel trailer. Now with the motorhome I am wondering of there are any reasons not to take this route?


The route we normally take is:
I-78 West out to Harrisburg
I-81 South (for less then 10 miles)
Rt. 15 South to Fredrick, MD
Continue on Rt.15 South to Leesburg, VA
Rt.15 & Rt.29 South to Warrenton, VA
Rt.17 South to Fredericksburg, VA
Then I-95 South to Richmond

Here is a link to the route. Click here

Thanks ..

I guess that I would probably stay on I-81 to Staunton, VA then take I-64 over to Richmond. This would keep you away from local traffic, that look around Harrisburgh and Pa-15 which I dislike. As of last week, the construction areas between Carlisle and the VA line are pretty clear sailing. And Virginia - nice smooth asphalt. It is probably 50+/- miles more, but the personal wear and tear reduction would, IMO, be worth the distance.

Another would be to do the I-66 way to save a few miles

Thanks for the input .. Going I-81 to I-64 is around 100 miles more, 336 vs. 425

Not to mention the mountain climb on I-64 between I-81 and Charlottesville. Been there!!

Now I-81 to I-66 might work...

Thanks again..
