I 81 has nicer places to stop, overnight, if desired, with much cleaner parking lots than 95 and no tolls. There a a few good truckstop on 95, but traffic through D.C. And Baltimore can be brutal -also on 287, if you hit it near rush hour.

I think I have my plan. I mapped out Cracker Barrel/Walmart Exits. I have never overnighted on the road. I will opt for Cracker Barrel as first choice Then Walmart, Then Flying J. Going to take I-81. Vero Beach FL to Walterboro SC layover, I-26 to I-77 to I-81 to Chambersberg PA layover, to Scranton PA, to Binghamton NY to I-88 to Albany NY to Saratoga Springs NY.
I have a class C 24ft flat towing a Ford Fiesta, total length is 42ft. I am a little nervous about negotiating the gas stations, so I will stay with Truck Stops for fueling.
I am set up pretty good for boon docking. Added a second house battery, added DC to AC inverters for Electronics. Add 2 roof fans. I have an on board 4000 watt generator, but I don't want run it much.
Looking forward to our first long haul.

It’s been my experience over the years that where there’s a couple of gas stations right at the exit off the interstate, one or all of them are ‘EZ in / EZ out’ places with lots of room to maneuver.
