Anyone know the best route to, or from Knoxville, TN TO Stockton CA?
I have to pull a long very loaded trailer and I usually cant get over the steep climbs (hwy 40) in AZ, NM. I do just fine everywhere else. I am trying to avoid the steep climbs otherwise any route works for me, don't care if it is a bit longer. Trailer is a 27 ft flatbed with built up sides, my PU is a dodge dually diesel. Thanks for any help or ideas. (loaded trailer might weigh 15 to 20 thousand lbs.)

Your only other viable option is I-10 east out of Riverside. Once past El Paso you can pick up I-20 to Dallas and then I-30 out of Dallas to intersect with I-40 in Little Rock.

The flatness


I-80 from Sacramento to Salt Lake City
I-15 from Salt Lake City to I-70
I-70 from I-15 to Denver
I-25 from Denver to Albuquerque
I-40 from Albuquerque to Nashville
I-24 from Nashville to Chattanooga
I-75 from Chattanooga to Knoxville


Flat as a pancake.

I especially like the Nashville to Chattanooga detour. That's just being obvious with your deviousness.
