York PA to Sturgis SD Best Route?

Looking for help with our route to chose from.

#1 is From York PA on the PA Turnpike and then traveling up Rt 80 around Chicago to pick up RT 90 to Sturgis.

#2 is from York PA on PA turnpike going past Chicago on RT 80 then route 29 near Omaha then up to 90

#3 Route is off turnpike below Pittsburgh then tru Columbus, Indy, then pick up RT 74 heading north and pic up 80 and continue the #2 route near Davenport.

If anyone knows these roads...conditions, tolls and such please let me know. Chicago and around it does not sound like a great time with a total 55 ft of RV and Trailer..

Bill

Just had to ask, it's been 2 years last Oct. since I was through coming back from New England, so I don't think my info would help you. I'll keep tabs on your post and pass my info along if you don't get something current.

Once you get past Chicago head north and ride U.S. 2. I rode back from Idaho on the bike this past summer and it was an easy ride. very enjoyable EXCEPT going thru Williston. That area is in a big oil/natural gas boom. In that area just take your time. US 2 is worth a look on the way out or the way back. Ride save out there. Jersey Dave

I'd say route 2. I've driven that way a few times when I loved in Pennsylvania.

My choice would be I70, I74, I80, I29, I90. Good roads, minimum tolls, and no Chicago.

Chicago

My issue is Chicago...I am fine in traffic but thought the Columbus thru Indy would be a better route..

Anyone know how the roads are out that way?

I hope the PA turnpike has improved a lot since I lived there. I would not take my RV on it as I remember it.

The PA turnpike is not as bad now as in years past...most has been repaved...I was not sure about Columbus and Indy...

We drove through Indianapolis in the fall and the interstate was rough but ok. I do my best to avoid Chicago.

There is ongoing construction on I465 and really all the interstate roads through Indianapolis. You will have to get on I-465 to get to I-74. We tow through there several times a year and seldom have encountered delays but expect lots of traffic. I-70 through Columbus is fine too and we just drive straight through. We usually tow through there at least once a year. The pavement is marked so you can make sure you are in the correct lane. I-74 on the west side of Indianapolis has a short stretch of construction and is then clear sailing.

We've never had a problem with Columbus or Indy, but it has been 2 years since we were through there.

I avoid all toll roads all the time.

We always enjoy the drive through Wheeling on I70.
