We bought our Airstream from Colonial when we were living in DC in 2015. Best to avoid DC and Baltimore metro areas, but I don't advise going all the way west to Frederick Maryland and I-81 (which is no picnic, either). Take whatever route pleases you from Colonial to US 301 in Wilmington Delaware. There's an interstate that parallels the NJ turnpike (but without the tolls), or you can take the turnpike. In any event, cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge to I-95 for a brief run until the US 301 south exit.
Take 301 south through Delaware and Eastern Shore of Maryland where it joins US 50. Leave US 50 around Salisbury and take US 17 south to the Chespeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. From there, it's an easy connection to eastern North Carolina and you're minimally caught up in the Norfolk/Portsmouth/Newport News congestion. We took that route going the opposite direction (north) from Elizabeth City to our home near Easton, Md.

The Cape May - Lewes ferry is an option, but its a several hour boat ride; and my guess is that the ferry is pretty expensive for a TV-trailer combination. Bay Bridge/Tunnel was not as expensive as I feared and all they wanted me to do was to shut off my propane.

We live on Virginia’s Northern Neck, east of Richmond. We very often travel to NJ, near Colonial, to visit family. Please listen to those who suggest traveling east from Wilmington, onto 301, through Middletown, down the Eastern Shore and over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (not the tunnel; too far out of the way and the HRBT is a mess). After the Bay Bridge, follow 301 S and over the Nice Bridge. Yes, it’s narrow but fairly easy. Go through Bowling Green and head west to 95, at a point where the traffic is less and you’re close to your destination. Enjoy!
