We just did some of your trip in reverse. We dropped our baby off at Colonial Airstream for some service and then ferried from Cape May to Lewes. There is an Airstream Park just a few miles north of the Cape May Ferry. We haven't stayed there but I'm sure there are many here who have.

We stayed one night at the Delaware National Seashore StTe park just south of Rehobeth Beach. While it was fine there was a huge amount of construction going on in the immediate vicinity. Some of it was Sandy-related beach repair and some the dismantling of the old bridge over the inlet. The new inlet bridge is gorgeous...it lights up blue at night. That alone was worth the stay

Our second night was spent at Kiptopeke which, in our opinion, is one of the best maintained state park campgrounds we've ever visited. We loved it. Much to see and do nearby.

The DelMarva was a pleasure to drive and the climate in Early May was perfect. We crossed the Chessy Bridge Tunnel and then we went south on route 17. We didn't go as far as Myrtle Beach though, as we were headed to Birmingham, Alabama. We hooked a right somewhere in coastal NC.

FWIW we have friends who drive an Airstream bus back and forth between NY and Florida. They swear by cutting off 95 in Fredericksburg and taking 301, bypassing DC and Baltimore.

Hope some of this helps.

Its a shame, really....that someone would avoid a trip to DC because of traffic. The thing is, there are plenty of places to park nearby and get public transportation right to the main attractions. In fact, as a 15yr resident in this area, I often do this when I want to take the kids to the Smithsonian. We drive to a train station and take a nice 150mph+ ride into the heart of DC. It's pleasant. There are no worries about parking, traffic jams, crime, or anything really. Campgrounds about in this area. It's easy if you do a bit of planning. I think every American needs to spend some time in DC- it's a VERY enlightening experience each and every time I go. I love it!
