Germany to Venice via Austria and Lake Garda

:D Hi Everybody. I remember in the old site something was mentioned about 2 or 3 things of which I am interested. I shall be travelling the second half of September from Germany (Murnau - between Munich and Garmich Partenkichen), through Austria to Italy via Lake Garda and then to Venice. Our motorhome is 30ft ( maybe 34ft if we change it). I understand that there may be extra charges for this size. My questions are:-

1. What are the possible routes and charges through Austria to Italy.
2. Which would be the better route? 1. Take the mountain pass (Brenner) via Autobahn, or (2) take the old road which runs in parrallel.
3. We have Dutch and German couples coming with us. Would it be cheaper to take another car so they can return to Germany whilst we carried on to Spain. Or, would it be cheaper to go only in our motorhome and return back to Murnau.
All your help will be most appreciated. :D :D :D :D

Bognormike, we're travelling to the Italian Lakes area in June for first time. Would be very interested for info on nice campsites or sostas in the area.

Party at the Lakes

Party at the Lakes sounds great to me!! We're arriving in France on 2nd June and taking our time down. Should certainly be around Lakes from 10th - 18th June at which time we're heading for Verona Opera and on to Venice. If a get-together between those dates is on the cards, count us in!!
BTW, I e-mailed Camping Weekend at Lake Garda to find out about amperage and pitch sizes. I said we would be using camping cheques, but would pay for upgrade if required. Got a very brief reply stating that they do not have any pitches suited to a 7 metre van. Has anyone stayed there who can confirm this, at it crossed my mind that the Camping Cheques may have caused this response. Just wondering.
