We have done several long road trips incl. 2 cross-country. I love long trips.
Fly in March. Rent a car closer to NH and drive to see relatives.
Do a proper road trip between May-Oct. There willl be a lot more national parks, sights, etc open and the nasty weather will not be an issue. Much more enjoyable. And take your time, 4-6 weeks, stop in all the places for as long as you want, instead of rushing to a deadline.
