RV route planning

Is there a website or book that will help plan the best RV routes? I'm quickly realizing that the route you would take in a car is often times different than what you would take with a RV.

I ask now before I end up in trouble!

Best to tell us where your going and we can tell you about all the wrong turns we made and I'm not kidding.

Side note, I can't believe there isn't something online saying along the lines of Maine to Florida for RVs. Than at least we can get close before veering off the tried and true.

I've got that one already. It won't necessarily let me avoid I95 if I'm going south thru DC and what not, unless I haven't figured out the secret.

For instance, every website I see has me going over the George Washington Bridge and basically living on i95 from NJ to ME. They're crazy !!! I don't go anywhere near the GWB in my car for heaven's sake !!! I got a motorhome to have a relaxed drive, not have a heart attack on the way !

Are you avoiding I95 because of height restrictions, or because of traffic?

Mostly traffic. That and I hate, HATE driving in cities. Driving the 32' motorhome, if I had to do it I'd do it at like 2 in the morning. I hate it that much.

I use TYRE on my desktop PC for route planning and posted this thread on it.
