I also did a MapQuest from the same points and it told me going around through Ohio would add approx. 132 miles. I myself have had little experience crossing the border in an auto and no experience in a MH.
From what I have read on other forums it should be no big deal.

I am 52 and so far have had no issues driving at night. Its normally cooler and once you are past the normal commuting hours traffic usually drops off. So yes , it makes a whole lot of sense to get several hours behind you Friday night , pull into a service plaza for some sleep , and go for it in the am.

Speaking of Service Plazas has anyone parked overnight at any of the New York Thruway service plazas ?

As far as my wife driving , she has only driven our 1st MH for a total of 4 miles which was a 24ft Class C. The only thing she has done in the drivers
seat of our current DP is to raise the jacks , start it, and air up. There have been indications recently that she is finally willing to try this spring , we will see.

You can definitely travel this far in two days. We traveled for two months this summer during my sabbatical. We found the key to long travel days is to exploit the benefits of the motorhome. I tend to be an early riser so I will get up by myself around 5:30 am and start driving until the rest of the family wakes up for breakfast 150 miles or so down the road.

We hook up the toad and get everything packed the night before including pulling in the slide outs. I also installed a steering stabilizer so now my wife feels comfortable drinking on freeways.
