RV Trip Routing – Pennsylvania to Texas

by Michael

Question: I’ll be moving from PA. to Port Isabel, TX. before January 2013. I am looking at the maps and I ‘m seeing a LOT of hills south of PA. into West Virginia and Tennessee. I’m running with a 2005 F150 towing a 19 foot trailer, my weight is borderline. Would I be better traveling a more westward, and then south route? And which routes ? Any trip suggestions would be helpful.

Answer: If we were making this trip, we would run some of the trip routes via FMCA and Good Sam, as suggested on our page at https://www.your-rv-lifestyle.com/trip-routing.html.

With that starting point, we would also check out variations via Google maps, etc. Considering the time of year you are traveling, we also suggest you keep tabs on local weather conditions along your planned route and check for alerts/cautions on the individual state DOT websites.

In general if you stick to the main highways that truckers use and drive safely and defensively, you should be okay. However, if it is icy or snowy, stay off the road until conditions improve.

If others have specific suggestions for this planned trip, roads to avoid or choose, etc….please comment. Thanks and safe travels!
