Texas to Maryland

We are pulling a 36 foot MPG from Tyler, TX to Leonardtown, MD the second week of July. I planned to take I-20 all the way across, meeting I-95 North, until hitting 301 across the Potomac into South Maryland. Is this a good route with not a lot of steep grades? I know there are several routes I could take, but I'm not relishing mountain pulls, which is why I was taking the Eastern Carolinas route. Suggestions?

Did you take 20 to 95? I always expect 20 to be rough in spots.

I just did it taking 20 to 59 to 75 to 81 and staying on 81, but I only touched the corner of Maryland as I went on to NY then NH then ME. I hit some rough roads at times also and got off 81 in NY and took back roads the rest of the way to ME. This was not the shortest route, but we enjoyed the trip.

That's cool. We are in Maine now. But I'm not pulling my rig until I get back to Tyler next week. Thanks for the info

The last time we were in Atlanta area we took the by-pass around, big mistake. That road south around to Stone Mountain was really rough. Potholes big enough to swallow the 45ft toy-hauler it seemed.

Then I-95 does have some rough spots on it.
