I'm going to renting a 12 ft Penske truck and will drive it in a couple of days from Aiken, SC to Providence, RI. We have our furniture and belongings but it shouldn't be heavy. No car towed.
I don't have any experience with driving trucks. I was wondering if any one can give some general tips in terms of:
- Best, less crowded, interstates to take.
- Average and max speed.
- How many miles per gallon such a truck do?
- Do I need to weigh the truck?
- Over how many days is it possible to make the trip? And where (city/hotel) do you recommend we rest overnight?
Any other tips that may be useful would be highly appreciated.
I hope someone can answer me soon, because we're moving soon.
Thank you very much!
