White Mountains of New Hampshire to Syracuse NY

We have a friend who is planning on leaving NH and heading to Syracuse and then eventually on to Illinois. He has a 42ft diesel motorhome and will have a toad. We are trying to help him plan his route. He is looking to start out on NH Rt 25 A but is open to other suggestions. East to West is one of those "you can't get there from here" type of situations. Of course you can but it's not easy. We're looking for an easy route if anyone knows of one.

I would go up to Littleton on 93 and come down 91. I have relatives that live in that part of the country.

Does he want to stay on the Interstate or go slow and enjoy the route taking US highways? Really need to know this first. Also what town is he starting from, White Mountains covers a pretty good size area.

He's starting from Wentworth, a small town near Plymouth. I hadn't thought of going up to Littleton. That might be great. He wants to stay mostly on highways or if back roads, not going through too many towns and roads that aren't too rough and bumpy.

Wentworth to Oxford if I remember was a little bit of up and down. Seeing the old man in the mountain has a lot of scenery even though a major Hwy.

OK here's a route that might suit what he wants Route 25A to I-91 South; US-4 West thru Rutland to Schuylerville; State Route 29 West thru Saratoga Springs NY and Johnstown NY to, State Route 28 South to Herkimer; then State Route 5 West to Syracuse.

X2 on D Lindy unless you want to get there quicker. Only other route towing is 91s to 90w

They took a ride on 25A yesterday and checked out the bridge over the Connecticut River and that looks fine. Next decision will be whether to go down to 90 and take that across or try some back roads, possibly Rt 4 as suggested. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll share them with my friends.
