You will find a couple of areas in VA with long grade hills in the Roanoke and Marion areas. Both have slow traffic lanes going up and coming down on the other side you are on your own...

We make the trip to the Smoky Mtns using I81 on a regular basis...

There are no tolls on I-81 in PA or MD either. If you're taking the PA Turnpike to reach I-81, they take E-ZPass. Below are the Carlisle toll booths if you get off the turnpike at Exit 226, Carlisle, to connect with I-81.

After exiting the toll booths, you need to be in the left lane and exit onto US-11 north, Harrisburg, to reach the I-81 interchange.

Once on US-11 north, it's about a mile between the turnpike and I-81 interchange. There are truck stops/filling stations/restaurants/etc. along this stretch. If you have the need for any of these services, it's a good place time to stop as many of them are "big rig" friendly. The entrance ramp for I-81 south, Chambersburg, will be on your right and look like this:
