Lived on Long Island for many years and have towed the TT over the GWB and thru the Bronx more times than I care to remember. Definitely more traffic this way than 287, but it only takes one accident and you're sitting no matter what route you take.

Not saying this is a better way to go, only wanted to let the OP know about the CG in Jersey City if that was a fit with his plans.

Lived in the area for decades and worked in the South Bronx. It's all a **** shoot. My suggestion is GWB to 87N to 287E, take NY 22 N(exit 5, iirc) and get on 684 N in Armonk, NY, to 84E. Plan on fuel in NJ or 87N and then there is fuel just over the CT border on 84.

95 - the CrossBronxXpwy, and the New England Thruway are packed, especially Friday afternoon northbound, fugetaboutit!!!

I would camp north of Waterbury CT; the Bristol suggestion appears to be a good call. There is at least 1 campground on the CT River north of Hartford as well.

And whatever you do don't get on a Parkway.

I would suggest going west of all that BS you are talking about. Unless you are in NE MD. I used to live right at BWI in MD and frequently went to Vermont to ski in the winter. Up I-83 to I-81 to Scranton (drop down 380)to I-84 to Mass turnpike to I-290 to I-495 to I-95 into Main....I have taken this route all the way into Canada and this way cuts out everything from Baltimore to Boston. You decide what to do once you reach Maine. This might help
