Don't know if you have considered this or not, but when we come down from central Illinois to Ft. Myers we split off of I-65 at Montgomery and use U.S. Rt. 231 to cut down to I-10, then over to I-75. It doesn't add very many more miles, is more scenic, less traffic, about 95% 4-lane divided with new pavement, and less steep grades. The downside is that you do go through a few towns which will slow you down, but we are never in a hurry anyway.
We have tried many CG's on the way down, this year we used a couple different ones. At the edge of Montgomery, just before getting on Rt. 231 you will find The Woods RV Park. It is a little run down but clean. Not the best part of town but the pull through sites are about 150' long, wide, and gravel. I think with a discount it was about $28.00 per night.
We tried Tallahassee RV also this year. Nice looking CG with a lot of tall trees. Very long but narrow pull through sites. It was closer to $40 per night. Of course both of these would only be applicable if you were actually coming down Rt. 231 through Alabama.
