I have a 35 ft fifth wheel and prefer not going through mountains. Going down i65 to I20 from Michigan to SC was a great route but would like to shorten if possible. How is going through from I 65 to I24 to I20.. We don’t like the mountains so going through the Virginia’s are not an option. Thanks for any help. Karen

If you don't like mountains then you're not going to like Monteagle Mountain west of Chattanooga. Do a websearch on it.

I-24 thru Chattanooga to I-75 south will shorten your trip 90 miles. Yes you will have to cross Monteagle Mountain. Coming from Nashville it about 4 miles of 5% up and 5 miles of 6% down, with about 2 miles of near flat across the top. I wouldn't go 90 out of the way, but that's me. You could come down I-75 thru Cincinnati, OH. You would then have to cross Jellico Mountain. The grades are about the same, but southbound you would climb the steep side. Mileage between I-65 and I-75 is near equal.

There used to be a neat site called "Flattest Route". Well, it still there, but apparently Google Maps jacked up the cost of map access so they had to shut the whole thing down.

Thanks Google.....
