Another newbie needing direction

#1
Hi Everyone,
Just purchased our 5th wheel and we have only gone to 2 short trip campgrounds. Now we are going on our first road trip (so excited :laugh: )
Going to Austin TX from Grand Rapids Mi. We only have 2-2 1/2 days to get there. Need route suggestions, place to rest for a few hours and anything we should avoid that only your experience can help with. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Rose, Timmer

AustinLoneStarRVRsrt-Austin (TX) Good spot to stay; a little pricey; need reservation
CrestviewRVPk-Buda (TX) Sparce spot to stay, but cheap. On the site of good RV dealer/service center.

I've been on some of the southern part of that route.
