We have used MapQuest to route us from MI to Santa Fe NM. There are two options. One going through Kansas and the other going through Oklahoma. We are considering the latter. We are in a class A MH. Any concerns along this route?

What does "Best Route" mean to you?
Shortest route?
Flatest route?
Most scenic / enjoyable route?
Route with the cheapest fuel?
Route with roads in the best condition?
Route with no toll roads?

Make your way down to Chicago country, get on Route 66 and follow it to just past Santa Rosa, NM. Then you turn northwest on old Route 66 (pre-1937) and go right to Santa Fe.

I'd go through Colorado and south. Way more enjoyable ride than across Oklahoma and Texas. I have done both in the same trip, and I only go the Colorado route now.

Unless you are looking for fastest route, I would cross Kansas to Pueblo, continuing west to Poncha Springs, then south on 285 to Santa Fe. Scenic and no mountain passes of any note.

Should be ok either way.

Be aware, they don't call it the "great plains" for nothing. It is greatly plain. Hours of fields and corn and cows.

Can't go wrong with US-2, it's a beautiful route.
