Does anyone out there have any information/ suggestions about a good, safe route to travel in an RV from New England to AZ in early Spring??? We are planning to head that way to retire and are concerned about weather on the way- snow, wind, tornadoes, LIONS, TIGERS & BEARS!!!! Any suggestions, advice or good 'stories' would be appreciated......

On Trip Advisor is a Road Trip Forum section that should be very helpful. We we drive CT to NM we head west on 70 to St. Louis, 44 to OKC and then hop on 40.

You shouldn't have any problems to concern you on just about any route during that time. If you follow a northern route, you might encounter a late season snow storm, and you could run into severe thunderstorms across the Great Plains or Texas and Oklahoma, but that would be all.

In either case, just pull over and let it pass because neither would last too long.

In an RV, I'd think your biggest challenge would be getting through, or around, NYC.

When is 'early spring', and why not see some great stuff along the way, as opposed to just motoring slowly, down the interstate highways?

This^^^

I worked for six months near Baltimore. When it was time to come back to San Diego, my DH drove our camper van out there. We shipped my suitcase back, and took our time driving back home. Stayed strictly away from the interstates.
