In about a month, I plan on heading south for a couple of months. I live only two miles off I-95 in New Jersey, and am heading to Ft. Lauderdale. Couldn't be easier on directions now could it (LOL). My question is, what is a reasonable number of hours to be on the road in your experience? I know that I went to Maine in my motorhome this summer, and found that the nine hour trip was no big deal to make in a day. I stopped a couple of times, and it is nice that your bed and food are right in the back. I just would like to be able to plan.
Also, should I drive for a few hours and rest for a few hours and continue on, or should I pack it up after XX hours and go to a campground for a full night's sleep? I would appreciate any and all answers as I am not certain how to plan this out.
