Hello all, We're taking a trip this July to the New Hampshire White Mountains. We live in Central PA. Has anyone traveled Interstate 91 through Massachusetts and Vermont? We have a 40 foot fifth wheel. Wondering how interstate 91 is....road condition?....steep elevations?....rest and fuel stops?....low bridges? Any advice would be appreciated!! Our plan is to stay at the Twin Mountains KOA off of US 302.

Thank you!!

Clear and relatively flat. Going from 91 to the KOA you’ll get into some hills, but nothing rough.

It's an Interstate; you won't have any more steep grades or low bridges than on any other Interstate (and less than some). Generally a nice enough road, a little irksome going through Springfield, MA due to traffic and such but not too bad. Beyond there traffic is generally not an issue in the least bit. The scenery is pleasant, and indeed quite pretty in some areas. Around I-89 there are a couple of miles where reasonably strong cross-winds are not uncommon; nothing at all unmanageable, but something to be alert for.

Rest areas, with facilities, I think there's just the Vermont Welcome Center (which is very nice) and one at Bradford not far from US302 when going northbound, and a rest area just south of I-89 southbound. Fuel is reasonably available, although there's not a station at every exit that would easily accommodate a large fifth wheel. It's not as though the entire route is all that long anyhow; you likely could get all the way from the southern MA border on a single tank.

Coming from Central PA, I would go up to Troy and catch 7 through Bennington and up to Rutland, then 4 through Killington picking 91 up in Hartford VT. Maybe even cut across 30/11 through Londonderry. A few 2 lane highways and a few grades but no big deal. The scenery can not be described, and there are some awesome out of the way campgrounds for an overnight not far off the path if you search for them.

Thank you the advice! We definitely prefer scenic to a boring interstate! I appreciate your help.

When going north/south, no problem. But you will find going east/west in VT/NH there's no great routes.

Consider as well getting both "Next Exit" & book that lists all roads/exits/fuel stops (forgot exact name of it). Going thru Troy can be a lil PITA, but once out of it, very nice drive as stated before.
