My 88 I4 auto is dubbed "The I-78 Express"

I do a weekly roundtrips between PA & NYC with mine.

I change my oil every 2,500 miles, but this is my preference.

If you stay on top of the maintenance and fluids, you're good to go.

I drive from SD to LA on a weekly basis in my 89 and it still runs like a champ. I change the oil every 2-3K and do all the regular maintenance. I would definitely take this car on a cross country trip because its comfortable, reliable, and i know it sounds strange for a camry, fun to drive.
