Driving from Texas to Florida

We will be traveling from San Antonio TX to Destin FL with a stop in Houston and another in Biloxi before arriving in Florida. Definitely the longest trip we’ve ever done in our Airstream and haven’t driven this route before so wanted to see if you can set expectations for me on road conditions, anything we should avoid and anything we need to try to see along the way. Thanks in advance!

Given your stopping points, you will be on some "fine" interstates. Plan on traffic and don't try for 600 miles a day. There are a *lot* of places to stop and play. Unless you are planning on a multi month drive, you will have to bypass most of them

I10 in Louisiana is, in some places, pretty bad. The viaduct across the Atchefelaya is segmented concrete and old. It can cause you to get into a state where the trailer and TV are both bouncing. If it happens, the best way I’ve found to deal with it is to avoid maintaining a steady speed — just vary between speed limit and minus 10 mph.

Have fun.
