Live in Northern Neck area of Va, hoping to tour west towards Memphis, then travel Mississippi River south towards Vicksburg then turn east - hope to visit Chattanooga area then towards Savannah, then back home. Atlanta not in the plans, but they can always be changed. Is there a 'best time of the year' for this trip? Any roads to avoid? We will do interstates, but prefer not to. We limit our travel to no more than 6 hours a day. We know the East Coast well (Savannah to home) but would appreciate Any suggestions on our 2006 32' MH with toad on best routes? We are history buffs, and not so interested in anything too physically demanding. Hope to tour for about a month. Thanks in advance for suggestions. We are Good Sam, Passport America and are clear to stay in military campgrounds along the way.

Life is too short to wait too long to do all we want to do!!
Go and enjoy!!

I'd do Chattanooga on the way to Memphis. Then go east from Vicksburg thru Montgomery to Savannah.

Not me. Try this. From Richmond I-64 to I-81 to I-40 t0 Memphis. Then I-55 south to Jackson Miss to I-20 West to Vicksburg. Coming back I-20 to Birmingham then I-59 to Chattanooga. Then I-75 back to I-40 back to I-81 then I-64. You pick out what to see along the way. Hard to avoid Atlanta if going to Savanna but I-20 isn't that bad through there early or late in the day

1860 miles your way, 1730 miles mine. The OP likes non interstate highway and if they are flexible it's an option. US-72/72A from Chattanooga to Memphis. And US-80 across from just east of Meridian MS to Macon Ga. Most of that is divided 4 lane, and mostly flat. The big plus is you stay far away from Nashville, Birmingham, and Atlanta.
