Lake George, NY to Colchester, VT

I have a 39' Class A towing a Ford Explorer. In August I will be traveling from the south side of Lake George (Ledgeview RV Park) to Colchester, VT. RVTripWizard has me taking SR-149 to Fort Ann and picking up US-4, and taking that to I-89.

I lived in VT in the 80's and drove that route a few times in my car. For some reason I remember it being a tight drive through the Rutland area and west.

I think that I can take my RV on any US numbered highway, but I am a bit concerned about that routing.

The option is to go north from Lake George on I-87 and cross over Lake Champlain just south of the Canadian border.

Any thoughts from someone that has done the US-4 route?? Am I worrying too much?


PS- I have driven some pretty snarky roads before, such as US-550 from Durango to Grand Junction when it was under repair and only one lane, US-64 from the east into Taos, and many others that were pretty winding and narrow. No issues with any of them, but for some reason US-4 is bothering me.....

Thatís a lot of ďEastĒ before you head North. Iím not quite sure the logic of the software but by my math, taking 4 all the way to I-89 (White River Jct) almost doubles the trip. Iím in the Burlington/Colchester area next while we donít tow, I still think the route we run to Lake George (I was out Moose Hillock just down the road from Ledgeview last Summer) would work for you just fine and be a LOT shorter drive. The route below follows Lake Champlain up to the Burlington area, itís a pretty drive in many spots with the lake and the mtns.

Rot 149 to Fort Ann. Pickup Rt 4.
Rt 4 to Fair Haven VT. Pickup 22A North.
22A to Vergennes. Pickup Rt 7 North.
In South Burlington, pickup 189 which will take you to I-89.
Take I-89 North 2-3 exits for Colchester.

Depending on where you are at in Colchester (Lone Pine or Mallets Bay Campground?) you will want either Exit 16 or 17.

As I said, I donít tow but my coach is just under 37 feet and Iíve never had an issue that way, done it MANY times.

Happy to help more, let me know.
