    I seldom prebook hotels, and I've only been shut out once. You will find plenty of choices all along the major interstates, the longest stretch along that route with no services is between Green...

    I would completely bypass Chicago. Take Michael's recommended route - I-91/I-84/I-81/I-80/I-76/I-71/I-70/I-74/I-80/I-29/I-90. No need for an EZ-Pass with this.

    Well, you could take US-61 to US-151 to get to Madison from Davenport if you have the time.

    I would get both. Most wifi is free, but mifi can get expensive. Verizon should have the widest coverage.

    If the weather and road conditions permit, you could do both - take US-61 from Davenport to LaCrosse.

    You NEED to make overnight stops in Van Horn and Casa Grande. You shouldn't have a problem finding inexpensive rooms in either place.

    I have personally stayed at the Super 8 in Van Horn and the...

    I-80 will take you over 8000 feet. I have to disagree with Mark and I recommend a far southern route. Unfortunately, this will not only take a lot longer, it will involve a lot of eastern seaboard...

    If you only want to drive 6 hours a day and only have 1 week, this is going to make any route deviations tight. It will take you 2.5 days each way by...

    Super 8 may not have many amenities, but they all DO have free wifi, in-room coffee makers, and free continental breakfast. Most have in-room refrigerators and microwaves.

    You will also have the issue of "winterizing" the RV. This means no usable water and no flushable toilet. If it's not winterized, the water tanks will freeze and cause damage.

    They are half that price here and preloaded with US maps, I'd recommend a Garmin. For very little more than a basic model, you can even get them with lifetime map updates. Do NOT rely solely on a...

    The most economical way would be to drive YOUR car, if you own one.

    However, if you only have 5 days, you don't have time to make a round trip. Period. Bite the bullet and buy the plane tickets. ...

    I would plan on taking the fastest route, with modifications. That would be I-95 to Jax (to avoid tolls), then I-10/I-75/I-24/I-57/I-64/I-70/I-29/I-90. I-80 could be a bit faster, but is subject to...

    Welcome to RTA!

    It's not possible to avoid SOME mountain travel, but I'd look at I-55/I-44/I-40/US-93 as being the best compromise between excess miles and major mountains.
