Driving from Chicago to Tampa in March


We, (wife, dog, cat, and me in order of importance), are headed to Tampa Fl. in March. We are traveling in a 33 ft Fleetwood Bounder.Anyone made this journey? Any suggestions for overnight accomodations, sightseeing, etc? Love to hear from you.

I presume you will be using I-75? Most of our snow occurs in March here in N Georgia. Cannot recommend places to stay above Chattanooga, but there are any number of adequate for overnight RV parks and boondock places south of Chattanooga. Flying J in Resaca comes to mind for a few hours rest. The rest area a few miles south might not be a good idea however.
Atlanta, approached from that area is best tackled after 9 or 9:30 on weekdays and before 2PM. Straight through on 75 - less trucks. Just pick a lane not on the extreme right or left and stay there. Run with the traffic. Believe it or not, the people around Atlanta are pretty good on letting you change lanes, but don't chance it by constantly trading lanes. You will move through a lot faster than you think.
There is a RV dedicated rest area just about a mile above the Macon by-pass. Not a bad place, but trucks like it to also. RVs park in a separate area from trucks however. South of Macon to the Florida line is pretty much stop where you want as far as rest area overnights. Again, there are a number of RV parks well marked from the horrendous billboards. Adel has a large truckstop with lots of overnight for RVs.
In Perry there is Fair Harbor RV park. Good prices and easy in and out pull throughs
