Since I travel IH-35 between San Antonio and Austin frequently (son attends UT), I would counsel against it with an RV/trailer. According to TxDOT, that congested stretch of IH-35 is one of the most dangerous in the nation. It's always busy. Then you have to get through San Antonio traffic to get to US 90. US 281 is a always mess, especially now with the construction---don't EVEN think of that as an alternate route to SATx.
That being said, I really like taking US 90 out to West Texas. We live in NW San Antonio, so it's easy access for us. It's a good road with great wild west scenery, including Langtry and the Pecos River bridge.

Autin to BB - there are lots of routes to go but I like the 290 to I10
then south on 67 to Alpine then S to Study Butte. I used to stay at
the RV park in Study Butte but its gone down hill so bad that I now
dry camp accross 170 from the ghost town for free. 2nd choice is Larrys
RV park S of Study Butte next to the gas station/store for $18 per nite for FHU. I like staying outside the
park becouse it puts me close to all the resturants and also I love the
porch at sunset. Rio Grande Village is about 35 miles from Study Butte plus
a few back to the ghost town.
Either way I love that place. Its great wherever you like to stay.
Bob
