Driving Camper from Fl to CT - need info
55 ft. of camper & tow vehicle. 13 ft 6 in. to top A/c unit on roof and 2 propane tanks. Our Trip-routing print-out takes us off I-95, near Washington, DC onto Rt. 401/Van Dorn St then Eisenhower - why would it do this? Avoid tunnel or low-clearance ?
Also, routing takes us I-95 from N.J. T-pike THROUGH New York City, into CT. I remember a tunnel or 2, from prior car trips; correct? I clicked on, "avoid tunnels and low-clearance". But, routing still sent us I-95. And, I also clicked "avoid Parkways" as a different trip-routing service sent us to the Taconac (spelling ?, sorry) Pkwy., with our first camper and big sign at entrance, "No RV's or Campers allowed on NY State Parkways". Yet both of these routing services no nothing of this law.
Someone I spoke to suggested Rt. 18 to I-287, to Tappan Zee Bridge, to I-87 but I can't seem to "suggest" this route to the routing service and so, I know nothing about this route.
I would really appreciate some imput on this - Thanks

Reason: T/Z = "Tappan Zee"
