We are traveling from NH to Letchworth State Park in a Toyota Motorhome.

Rt 9 through VT, Than Rt 7 through Troy NY, onto I-87 than 90.
We want to make sure that we won't have any problems with road restrictions. My main concern is are motorhome allowed on Rt 7 from NY-VT?

So, there is indeed a Toyota motorhome. I thought it's just a stuff of legend in the RV world.

Sorry, for the joke (no, I've not been to the route you mentioned and I intend to avoid NY at any cost when I happen to swing by). Went back to hiring company's limo service after attempting to rent an SUV to move around and see some sights.

We've done 9 to 7 a few times in the past with a 45' and a toad. No problems. If you're asking about current conditions like road closures, I have no idea.

Check out Waze.com. I think it is supposed to show road conditions but have only used it once.

Those are commonly used secondary routes for truckers. There are no restrictions for motorhomes on them. There are a few hills and curves, but it's all quite workable for most any vehicle and certainly a small class C motorhome. (You might be a bit slow on some of the hills, but I assume you're somewhat used to that already.) I don't know specifically of current construction, etc. concerns but would not expect significant problems, and for sure there would be reasonable detours suitable for large vehicles as needed.

A hint: when going from I-87 to I-90, pay attention to keep to the righthand lane. The righthand of the two lanes that exit for I-90 is also a merge lane from the previous interchange, and pretty soon after the exit from I-87 this righthand lane has the I-90 West entrance split off from it (and both exit lanes continuing on for I-90 East). The signs don't give a whole lot of warning for the I-90 West lane specifically, and merging over quickly can be tricky if there's much traffic.

I had to chuckle when I read that you're going to Letchworth SP in your Toyota Class C. I retired in 2005 and bought a 1986 Toyota/Dolphin Class C on my way home from my last day at work. After some time refurbishing it, the very first trip we took was to Letchworth SP. The Toyota is now enjoying life with a nice woman in Massachusetts, but we'll be going back to Letchworth in a couple of weeks with our current Class A. Thanks for the memory! [emoticon]
